How to charge any Android smartphone wirelessly
You need to purchase a wireless charging kit that includes a wireless charging receiver that is a thin sticker type receiver that is connected to a micro USB port. This micro USB port enters the charging port of the smartphone, and you hide the receiver’s keyboard under a case used with your smartphone.
Once this is done, connect your wireless charging platform to the wall jack and place your phone on the charging platform. And simply lift your smartphone when the charge is done, you will not have to mess with the cables.
No matter what smartphone you own, the charging kit even comes with iPhones, but it shows some compatibility issues. Therefore, buying a wireless charging kit for your iPhone is a bet unless you have compatibility with the iPhone. If you have questions, let us know in the comments or on our social networking pages.
