The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are available around and look to be some of the best phones available. Offering lots of features like water resistance, micro-SD cards or all-day battery life. One of those features is called Fast Wireless Charging. Here we’ll be going over everything owners need to know about it.
The two new phones support both Qi and PMA wireless charging, the reps told me, and they also offer “wireless fast charging.” But nobody knew if the Galaxy S7 support the Wireless Power Consortium’s (WPC) latest specification, which was announced last June and allows for a maximum of 15w wireless charging.
“If the charger detects that the device supports fast charging … the output will be 15 watts,” according to the company.
The autumn, Samsung expected to release a wireless charging kit for its Galaxy S3 phone. After years of scrutiny, wireless is the latest plan to save the dying power cable of the phone.
Wireless charging, in fact, also known as inductive charging, its core is a conductive coil. That coil creates a magnetic field. If placed in close to a coil of similar size, the two resonance, creating a current without wires. This is the inductive charging.
Wireless power can reduce the demand for power cable, but also increase more durability of the product, eliminate the need of disposable batteries. “This is a very promising technology,” said Farouk Balouchi, an analyst for Pike, “is not a green technology, but it’s something that can help mobile devices become more energy efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable.”
In today’s mobile world, if there is a conversion technology, it is the wireless charging. This is the next best thing to come along. But, what is the wireless charging?
Just like any other technology, there are a lot of system to seek dominance, and become “the standard”. Wireless charging is almost Qi standard globally, which is set by the Wireless Power Consortium. Actually, this standard aren’t compatible, because the induction coils operate at different frequencies for starters.
We’ve all been there and experienced the panic that occurs when your phone dies unexpectedly. Or more likely when your phone dies in an inconvenient place, somewhere devoid of chargers and open wall plugs. The panic sets in: what will I do if someone sends me a Facebook message? Or if my mom calls? Or if that cute boy in psych class finally texts me?
