What is inductive charging, and how does it work?
Inductive charging, or wireless charging, is not a new concept. Dating back to the late 1800s, Nikola Tesla first experimented with inductive charging to power lighting devices, but it has only recently become a commonplace technology. While you used to have to plug your phone charger into your cell phone and an electrical socket (as well as an adapter when abroad), now all you need to do is place your phone on top of an inductive charger. Instead of transferring energy through a cord, inductive charging wirelessly transfers energy by means of a device’s close proximity to a short-range electromagnetic field created within a charging station.
