Have you ever thought about having a wireless charging technology? Can you really believe that you can charge your iPhone without any cable in future? But these thought are about to be converted in the reality. Apple has advanced far ahead in their research to develop a groundbreaking wireless charging technology. Many technology researchers have developed diverse methods to build a wireless charging system for smartphones and other handheld devices. Among them, Apple’s much-appraised induction-based wireless charging project is a bit interesting, and deserves to mention here.
Rumors suggest that Apple will be up with a wireless charger for its iPhone 6 in 2012. However, after the new development that Apple launched iPhone 4S for this year instead of an iPhone 5, we may be getting the wireless charging in an iPhone 5 only in the next year. The imagined toe-to-head revamped iPhone 5 will be only drifting to the market next year now. Whatever it is, in this article, we are talking about the wireless charging technology, its possibilities and, of course, its efficiency to keep you move on without a cable charger in your backpack.
How does wireless charging work?
Apple’s wireless charging method is all about the induction technology. Your smartphone or tablet is expected to obtain power as a result of some inductive processes in a charging mat. We have no more details about the Apple’s much-discussed wireless charging method; however inductive charging is a commonly accepted method for wireless charging. Some of Apple’s recent patent applications specify that the company is working to churn out a technology to charge its future iPhones using the induction-based wireless charging.
The technology states that inductive charging happens when electromagnetic field transfers power between two objects. With an inductive coupling to an electrical device that may be a computer or any other devices, the charging station – charging mat – will send the power into the battery of your handheld devices. It is actually a kind of method in which a short-distance wireless electricity happens. For the procedure, you are supposed to place your device on top of a charging mat, built up of the components required for the inductive power generation.
Benefit of wireless charging
Wireless charging primarily escapes you from the task of searching for an electricity outlet whenever you are out. Quite often, when you go for a trip, you will be much worried about carrying the cable charger and also finding an electricity outlet. But as the wireless technology is to get realized, you will no longer have to be anxious of these things. You can carry the wireless charging mat and use it for charging your device near any electric device. One another benefit is that inductive power is an alternative power option. Technologists these days are working to utilize all possibilities to harvest power from alternative sources. Inductive power is indeed part of such a movement. So wireless charging, to an extent, goes green also.
