MagSafe wireless or induction charger with Qi technology
How does the wireless charger work?
Wireless charging is based on the principle of magnetic induction. It transmits energy from a support to your phone which acts as a receiver. The current is thus redistributed to the battery.
The two technologies known to date and suitable for wireless charging are the Qi standard (delivers up to 7.5 W for iPhones) and an improved version by Apple: MagSafe. This uses the same principle as that of induction, but by adding magnets and delivers up to 15 W.
Which iPhone can charge wirelessly?
To be able to benefit from inductive charging, compatible iPhone models include iPhone 8 and later models:
Wired charger: a charging mode with a USB cable
How does a wired charger work?
A wired charger needs an AC adapter plugged into a wall outlet, as well as a USB to Lightning cable which links the adapter to the Apple device. This can deliver more than 20 W when using adapters with fast charging technologies. It thus allows a power supply from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes for compatible iPhones such as the iPhone 8 and the following models.
A charger compatible with all Apple iPhone models
If the wireless charger equipped with technology MagSafe is only available for iPhone 8, X and later models, the wired chargerhe can Power all Apple iPhone models. It does this via an AC adapter as well as a Lightning cable. Some cables can embed Quick Charge or USB Power Delivery fast charging technologies (delivers up to 100 W).
