How do wireless chargers work?

Wireless charging is not complicated at all, it works simply by transferring energy from the charger to a receiver that is normally located at the back of your phone via a process called electromagnetic induction. The charger usually have an inductive coil that creates an alternating electromagnetic field and the receiver at the back of your phone converts the electromagnetic fields back to electricity which is fed to the battery.

The charger and the phone are typically supposed to be at a close proximity and should also be correctly aligned over top of each other but a set orientation is usually not really necessary. This type of inductive charging have been used in rechargeable toothbrushes and some other bathroom accessories for over 28 years.

In the wireless charging industry there are usually several competing standards for portable gadgets like smart phones. Phones that support both PMA and Qi or even AirFuel Alliance standards will most probably work with most of the available wireless chargers. In the recent years, Qi is taking over the wireless charging industry most probably is because it is used in apple for iPhone X and iPhone 8.

The software of the phone can also play a role when it comes to the speed of charging. For example iPhone X which runs on iOS of 11.2 or later will charge with 7. 5 watts while another iPhone X running on iOS 11.1 will charge at 5 watts.

The packaging of most of the wireless chargers will indicate the speed of the charger. Look at the box and find the wattage speed or it might be listed on the specification listing of the wireless charger. After that compare it with the charging speed of your phone.
