Did you hear that Apple’s new iPhones come with wireless charging capabilities. About time I say. Both Samsung and Sony phones have had this feature for many years. In some ways iPhones are just catching up.
Well this is a great feature to have if you’re an iPhone aficionado and you’ve got a thousand dollars to spare to upgrade your phone. But what about if you have a model 7, a model 6 or even a model 5?
These old models are all perfectly capable have great cameras and other features. Well luckily there is a solution, I know because that’s what I use right now and the great news is that it’s not too expensive either. You can pick up some good models here wireless charger for iphone But first, here’s my story.
I live with a wife and three teenagers. We all have either iPhones or Android phones (three iPhones and two Android phones).
Now, no matter how many charge cables and/or USB transformers I buy. I’m always looking for a charger. Even when I set mine up in the bedroom and tell everyone “don’t touch” sooner or later it’s gone.
That was problem one, the other problem I had, I know it’s my own fault, was looking for, then grabbing my cell phone on the way out, with little or no charge. Happens to us all I’m sure
Android Users are Lucky
For the two Android phone users in our house, I got then a charging pad each. They’re not expensive and when not in use you put the phone on it and it charges. Slowly using something called induction
Good News for old iphones
When I looked into it, I found that there are kits you can buy for the iPhone which gives the iphone wireless charging capabilities as well. Very simple and easy to fit and as a bonus, both android and iPhones can use the same charger pads, aslong as the use the Qi charging protocol (most do).
As I said before charger pads are not that expensive so I’ve now got them all over the house. Two in the kitchen. One in my study one in the hall, one in the lounge and one each in each in all the bedrooms.
As an added bonus I don’t look for my phone anymore because the habit has taken hold. My phone must be on one of the pads. So it’s easy to locate and it’s been charging as well.
Wireless charging is so simple to do and so useful as well. You should definitely consider it for your old iPhone and bring it up to date.
