How wireless charge works
For power transmission, the wireless charger requires two coils, one in the wireless charger and the other is in the receiver. So what happens when you place the phone on a wireless charging pad? As you place it on the pad, it sends out the signal from its coil to the phone coil. Therefore, which is simply pick up by the charging phone.
Once this happens, the color of the screen change. And changing light indicates the phone is charging. Also, the wireless charger has a coil that is made of copper. And this coil is used to send current from the charging pad to the phone. When the current passes through the coil, it creates a magnetic field. So the receiver coil in the smartphone use it. And this coil picks up the magnetic field and induces a current that charges the battery. Let me define it more clearly.
- There is a coil made of copper inside your smartphone.
- On the other hand, wireless charger contains transmitter coil too.
- so, both absorb each other’s signals.
