Wireless Charging System Advantages and Disadvantages

Wireless charging technology has come a long way in creating a wide ecosystem of wireless charging devices for private homes and public businesses, so it can now be integrated into just about anything in order to charge your device automatically! The benefits most wireless charging systems have become increasingly evident, but so have the disadvantages. Here are some of the pros and cons in the most common wireless charging systems:

 

Wireless Charging System Advantages

Convenience

The #1 benefit of wireless charging is never having to fiddle with cords! Wireless charging eliminates the need for messy cords and provides a more convenient charging experience by just letting you drop your device on or in the charging station. By not having to deal with cords, the charger is less likely to break or wear out over time. If you’ve ever had to deal with a broken phone charger, you can probably sympathize with this one!

Moreover with wireless charging is not having to deal with remembering where you left your cord, or having to worry about the various types of chargers for various devices. With a wireless charging station, you can charge all of your devices simultaneously!Humavox's wireless charging system

Integration

One of the best advantages of certain wireless charging technologies is the ability to integrate into any device size or shape. With a tiny wireless charging receiver module just like Humavox’s Thunderlink wireless charging can be implemented into the smallest of electronic devices, such as hearing aids, smartwatches, and more, in order to make wireless charging convenient for all.Humavox's wireless charging system Receiver

Multiple Device Wirelessly Charging

Everyone in today’s electronic world has multiple devices that need to be charged daily. So how can we charge all of our devices simultaneously, with minimum clutter? This is where wireless charging stations come in handy. A multiple devices charging station can help keep all of your gadgets in one place and hiding the unaesthetic clutter of cords. So you can reduce the amount of cables and discard international power adapters. In today’s ‘connected world,’ multiple device wireless charging is becoming more of a necessity than anything. With so many smartphone, wearables, and other tech gadgets that require recharging devices, wireless charging is inevitable.Humavox's Wireless Charging System Drawer

 

Disadvantages of Wireless Charging Systems

Even though there are numerous benefits to wireless charging, we all know that perfection does not exist, and wireless charging also has some disadvantages:

(Slow) Performance

One of the reasons that wireless charging has not been fully integrated is that it can still be slower and less efficient than a traditional charger. Having said this, it is important to mention that this factor is technology-dependent. Certain wireless chargers simply cannot reach the same level of efficiency as traditional charging, so the process tends to be slower. In addition, the heat generated in certain types of wireless charging technologies is generally higher in comparison with the conventional way of charging.

Mobility

Though the signal transmitted between your smartphone and the charging station is wireless, it is still necessary to plug the charging station to the wall. Therefore, devices currently available on the market are not portable, and therefore do not allow you to charge ‘on-the-go.’ Humavox charging stations also require a plug, but come with a portable battery that can be charged on-the-go until there is enough energy to sustain its power.

 

So no, wireless charging isn’t perfect, but it’s certainly getting there! Humavox Radio Frequency (RF) technology aims to solve most of the disadvantages and usability flaws of current wireless charging technology. We make it even easier to use because it allows for non-contact wireless charging, meaning the user doesn’t need to exact placement of the device in order to charge effectively.
