Why you need a Qi Wireless Charger for your Cell Phone

What makes life easy and fun?

To me the fun of life is discovering new information, technology, and just about anything I didn’t know about on YouTube.

As we test and try new items for our store www.cellularsamrtshop.com we are always asking the questions: Will this help our customers? Do we like it and use it? Does it make life easier or better somehow?

Does your family have a charging pile in the kitchen or somewhere like the one below? We are now charging up our cars for goodness sake!!

Do you spend your time waiting for the future? Thinking of the hand swipe computer in Iron Man and spreading the information around the room on multiple screens in the air or just talking to your computer like Captain Kirk on Star Trek? Well it's coming!!

Qi Wireless Charging is old but new technology. It has been around for a 100 years but was not reliable enough with consistency in systems and technology to be useful to the average consumer.

Some day you will not have to recharge these mediums but for now if you can just lay your cell phone or apple watch on a pad or stand as opposed to plugging it in and everything that goes along with that then we believe it has reached that threshold.

The Smartphone Wireless Charging Era Begins

It was early 2015 that Samsung embedded a wireless charging circuit into its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Smartphones, making wireless charging a basic option for smartphone users for the first time.

Samsung made its first Wireless Charging Pad (Below) a circular shape which made it easier for everyone to locate the center of the charging pad. This is where you plug the pad into the wall but the charger connects to the smartphone via an electromagnetic field. Later that year, Samsung introduced the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad.

In 2016, Samsung created the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand. This new stand charger had coils which allowed you to see your phone sitting up or sideways or watch videos while charging your phone. 

Now, Samsung’s fast-charging Wireless Charger has a Convertible function which lets you use it both as a charging pad and stand that you can also fold and carry for easy mobility.

Wireless Charging designs continue to evolve.

Wireless charging technology continues to evolve and Apple added Wireless Charging to its 2017 iPhone lineup. If you have an iPhone Xs, Xr, X, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone 8 you can just place your phone on your charging pad or stand and you’re done.

If you have an older iPhone model though you have a problem because you still have to use Apple's “Planned Obsolescence” Lightning Cable that constantly wears out on purpose. (Oh wait that’s just my cables). But there are alternatives out there that are simple Qi Wireless Receivers and Wireless Charging Pads like the one below.

Back to the future!! Where is the Bad Puns jar? I think I owe it a few dollars today.

Benefits of Wireless Charging

The benefits of wireless charging are that wear on the charging port is reduced as mentioned earlier because you do not need to plug in your phone to an “Old Fashioned Charging Cable” all of the time something that often leads to charging port faults and requires repair.

There is no evidence that wireless charging degrades your smartphone battery faster than wired charging. It also doesn’t charge it as fast but is getting faster every day.

The Qi Wireless Chargers themselves also have no wear and tear and we are starting to see them in airports and public places like hotels, restaurants, and many other places. Car brands offering in-car wireless phone charging are Audi, Cadillac, Chevy, Ford, Kia, Lexus, Mini. Volkswagen, BMW, Hyundai, Mercedes, Peugeot, Tesla, Toyota, and Volvo.

So you will continue to see this technology continue to appear as we convert to it over the next ten years.

5g Mobile Technology Long Term Benefits
5g Mobile Technology Long Term Benefits

by John Mortensen

What Will 5G Mean For Smartphone Owners?

The ultimate mission of cellular data has always been to be on par with Wi-Fi. 4G has come close in many ways, but let’s be honest; we know there are things we can do at home on our computers or tablets that we cannot do on our cell phones. When we are at home, we think nothing of streaming.

Depending on your internet provider and plan, if you have modern Wi-Fi, you may have no data allowance or cap, so some can go to town and binge as many Netflix shows as we like.

However, this abundance of data has not yet crossed over into our mobile lives. Many of us are on data plans, and it is always possible to use up all of our data before we know it. Streaming through our phones is one way we risk doing this, which is why most people are still relatively conservative in their mobile streaming habits, but this is becoming harder to do.

How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life
How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life

by John Mortensen

Before the holidays, we wrote a blog post called “How Can You Hear Something That’s Not In Your Ear?” The blog's title was inspired by my father-in-law asking me that very same question while we were on a family holiday. As a prolific writer and self-confessed workaholic, I was busy writing my latest article while listening to the Killer's latest album through my Bone Conduction headphones.

Due to Bone Conduction headphones sending the music directly into my inner ear, I was able to enjoy it while I concentrated on my work, but without shutting out my surroundings. I was on a family vacation; after all, one which included dogs and small children all running around together.

It was sensible to keep an eye (and both ears) on them just in case I was needed to do a spot of parenting. Fortunately for me, my Bone Conduction headphones allow this due to their design. Other headphones may have blocked out the sound entirely.

Do You Need to Upgrade to a 5G Phone in a Small Town?
Do You Need to Upgrade to a 5G Phone in a Small Town?

by John Mortensen

I live in remote Alaska where there is barley 3G and don’t see us getting to 4G, let alone 5G anytime soon. For most of my life, I lived in a large city with cutting edge technology and the benefits of living with 4G.

The 5G promise is very exciting for many reasons we list below but do we need a 5G Phone in rural Alaska? The answer is no because there is no connection and if you live in a rural area the answer is more than likely the same for you.

Nome Alaska is 143 miles from the Arctic Circle and you can see Russia on a clear day from Wales which is in the Nome census area and Nort of Nome. If you measure on Google Maps Lavrentiya Russia is 179 miles from Nome Alaska.
