Wireless charging refers to any method of charging electronic devices without the need for plugging them into a power source. The most popular methods of doing this are Qi, a universal system used by Apple, Samsung, Google, and other manufacturers, and inductive charging, which uses electromagnetic induction.

Today, wireless charging is available as an option for most flagship smartphones and is utilized as the main method for smartwatches. While wireless charging is usually not as fast as traditional charging via USB or other methods, it provides additional user convenience and less risk of damaging the device's charging port.
