Smartphone technology is getting better and better every year, both in terms of hardware as well as software. Wireless charging is a feature available on smartphones since 2012, but hasn’t gone mainstream. Wireless charging as the name indicates allows you to charge the phone without having to connect to wires, simply place you phone on the wireless charging pad. The technology works by the principle of magnetic induction, allowing power to be transferred from a charging mat to phone’s battery.
