Inductive charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is sent through an inductive coupling to an electrical device, which can then use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.
ADVANTAGES of wireless Charging
- Lower risk of electrical shock or shorting out when wet because there are no exposed conductors, for example toothbrushes and shavers, or outdoors.
- Protected connections – no corrosion when the electronics are all enclosed, away from water or oxygen in the atmosphere.
- Safer for medical implants – for embedded medical devices, allows recharging/powering through the skin rather than having wires penetrate the skin, which would increase the risk of infection.
DISADVANTAGES of Wireless Charging
- Lower efficiency, waste heat – The main disadvantages of inductive charging are its lower efficiency and increased resistive heating in comparison to direct contact. Implementations using lower frequencies or older drive technologies charge more slowly and generate heat within most portable electronics.
- More costly – Inductive charging also requires drive electronics and coils in both device and charger, increasing the complexity and cost of manufacturing.
- Slower charging – due to the lower efficiency, devices can take longer to charge when supplied power is equal.
