THE SIZ­ZLE OF IN­DUC­TION

The Pullman Magazine - - Places & People To Love -

In­duc­tion trans­fer charg­ing is a type of tech­nol­ogy that al­lows an elec­tronic de­vice’s bat­tery to be recharged with­out the need for ca­bles. The de­vice in ques­tion (smart­phone, tablet, smart­watch, etc.) sim­ply needs to be equipped with a Qi wire­less re­ceiver. All the user needs to do is to place the de­vice on top of a wire­less charger and it will be au­to­mat­i­cally pow­ered up via mag­netic in­duc­tion. Nu­mer­ous mo­bile de­vices now come fit­ted with an in­duc­tion re­ceiver, but if that's not the case a Qi re­ceiver can of­ten be added. The Nin­tendo New 3DS, the Sam­sung Galaxy S6 and the Ap­ple Watch have all re­cently adopted this kind of tech­nol­ogy. As its pop­u­lar­ity grows, in­duc­tion trans­fer charg­ing has also cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of brands such as IKEA, with the firm now re­tail­ing mass-mar­ket fur­ni­ture equipped with built-in wire­less charg­ers.
