These days, smartphones come with fewer and fewer accessories, including the AC adaptor needed for wall charging. So, many people are turning to wireless charging. Not only are wireless chargers convenient for charging mobile phones, but you can often charge multiple devices simultaneously.
Wireless charging trends
Wireless charging transmits energy from a power source to a device without cables. The charging station transmits energy to a receiver integrated inside the device that charges the battery. The global wireless charging market size was USD 5.48 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach $34.65 billion by 2030, representing a CAGR of 22.73% between 2021 and 2030.
Not only is the wireless charging market growing at a rapid rate, but the importance of wireless charging is growing as well. With the Qi standard of wireless charging already widespread, wireless chargers can be implemented everywhere. In the future, you could see wireless chargers built into restaurant tables, your desk at work, your car, and lounges at the airport.
Benefits of wireless charging
There are numerous benefits of investing in wireless charging:
One charger for any phone
One of the most significant benefits of wireless charging is that it’s agnostic – all devices that use the Qi wireless charging standard will be able to charge. This is great for sharing charging devices among a household, friends, and public places.
Safer for the phone battery
There are so many “rules” about safe battery charging that how to charge your phone safely is a bit confusing. With wireless charging, consumers don’t have to worry about following these rules because wireless charging charges the devices slower than a wired charger, so it helps to maintain the battery capacity between 50-80%, which is the best for the battery life.
If you use one wireless charger for all devices, you can reduce the cord clutter. It no longer becomes necessary to clutter your home or desk with several different chargers or even carry a cord in your bag.
What to consider when buying a wireless charger
Generally, consumers will seek a wireless charger that uses the Qi charging standard, which will work with most of their devices.
The charging speed of wireless chargers is always going to be slower than with a cable, but between wireless charging devices, the charging rate can vary considerably. Another thing consumers will be seeking is charging devices that can charge all their devices simultaneously.
Additionally, consider wireless charging on the go, as not everyone will have time to charge their device before they go out.
