Do you dare to trust all wireless charging solutions?
Our portable devices are becoming more and more compact and ergonomic in design, they are becoming completely sealed solutions without plugs and cables. We even see this trend for larger cordless devices in smart homes and for medical, industrial or automotive applications, like in-car charging.
Today’s wireless charging works invisibly by simply placing our much loved pocket, portable devices upon a charging pad and forgetting until fully charged. No messing around with various charging cables or wear and tear on plug contacts. We are seeing wireless charging solutions ranging from the common office and home solutions, to airport lounges, bars and restaurants, hotels and various public venues, even embedded in our smart home furniture.
But can you trust in all these chargers? Will they correctly first identify and check for the correct power delivery, charging modes, and then correctly power down once charging is completed?
