Liberty Wireless Charger
How does wireless charging work?
The magic behind wireless charging is electromagnetic induction. Wireless charging technology uses an electromagnetic field and inductive coupling to send energy from point A (transmitter) to B (receiver).
Qi chargers typically use an induction coil to create an alternating electromagnetic field from within a charging base station.
A second coil in a mobile device takes energy from this electromagnetic field and converts it back into electrical current to charge the battery. Any compatible mobile device up to 15W can be (re)charged this way. Most Zens chargers are equipped with one large charging coil, to ensure flawless wireless charging every time the device is used. Thanks to the size, the device(s) can be freely placed on the charging pad and charging automatically starts.
What is Qi?
The name “Qi” (pronounced chee) comes from the Asian philosophy and means vital energy, an intangible flow of power. The Qi standard was developed in 2010 by the Wireless Power Consortium in which over 600 companies (including Philips, Sanyo, Panasonic, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, HTC and Motorola) participate; including Zens. Qi is the sign of interoperability between power transmitters and power receivers. The Qi standard is the most widely adopted global wireless power standard.
Do your devices support Qi?
A vast growing number of smartphones and devices have Qi technology incorporated as standard (for example, iPhone 8 or later features integrated wireless charging). Click here to check if your phone or device is Qi enabled. If your mobile device is Qi enabled it means it is an official tested and registered device meeting all the requirements imposed by the Qi standard. The benefit of the Qi standard is that any mobile device can be charged on any Qi charger. This is not only convenient at home but also when you’re out and about in public spaces.
To ensure seamless compatibility with your wireless charging devices, always use a Qi certified wireless charger. Accreditation that your charger has been developed specifically for your smartphone means it will work without compromising your phone’s features and capabilities. International safety standards guarantee that a wireless charger adheres to legal guidelines on safety. These assure safe levels of emissions and manufacture using non-hazardous materials. Laws are different for each country but look out for these key icons.
