What is Wireless Charging?
Wireless charging simply means that you can charge your smartphone without cables. You don’t have to plug and unplug each time. Your phone needs to be at a short distance from the actual charging pad. Several of the newer phones hitting the market have the capability already built in, while some need an adapter to facilitate the charging.
