You use your smartphone to buy movie tickets, download your favorite songs, and make online reservations at the new French restaurant. But, if your smartphone battery dies, you can not do any of this. And let’s face it, charging your smartphone the old-fashioned way is a drag. You have to plug your charger into an outlet leaving it connected long enough to give it sufficient power.

But now there is an easier solution to charge your device: a smartphone charging pad.

Charge your phone wirelessly

These flat pads, which look like little mats, allow smartphone users to charge their phones wirelessly. What this means is no searching for an available outlet and no fumbling with tangled cords. Better still, you can put many devices on your charge pads at the same time and charge all of them at once. Charge pads work with everything from smartphones and electronic readers to iPods, iPads, and digital cameras.

This might appear to be magic but charge pads rely on electro-magnetic induction charging. They generate a magnetic field, which charges the battery in your smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices.

Charge pads a technology in progress

Smartphone charge pads, though, haven’t really seized the imaginations of shoppers. There are a few reasons for this: To start with, today’s charge pads aren’t cheap. In some instances, they cost nearly as much as the gadgets that consumers wish to charge.

Next, they take up space. For individuals trying to save space and reduce mess, this negates their purpose.

An improving wireless world

As technology improves we are certain to see smaller, more efficient, and cheaper charging pads on the market. Eventually, my guess is that these will be must-have items.
