Innovative methods of charging electronic gadgets
These days we seem to be taking more and more electronic gadgets with us on tour. In some respects we would like to do without them and in some ways obviously we could, but we do like taking photos as we do have elderly parents who like to know they can keep in touch with us, Frank likes to read her Kindle and the GPS has been useful. All of these gadgets have batteries that obviously need charging on a regular basis.
The obvious way to charge these gadgets is to use the mains chargers that they came with and plug them into wall sockets at campsites. However this is not always possible and especially difficult if you are wild camping! We have tried various methods of charging other than using the mains.

            Innovative Charging methods for Your Cellphone and Other Electronics


Carrying chargers for your cell phone or the laptop wherever you go isn’t very convenient. Everyone has different charging concerns; some people cannot find enough outlets for their charges and others deal with heavy, bulky devices.

 

  1. Glob is Charging Station
This is a charging station that allows you to multi-charge up to 6 devices. Its beautiful spherical design cleverly hides and adjusts cables inside. Globis is based in Sweden.



  
A World Without Wires: the Future of Wireless Charging

Wireless charging is a technology which enables charging of your devices without them actually being in contact. Yes, you heard it right, in the process of wireless charging we don’t require the bulky and long USB to attach every time to your phone to get your phone charged but through this technology, the power is transmitted through free space. For the first half of the article we go over high school physics, which is behind this cool technology. If you wish to skip that you can go straight to the section on available products.
How does it actually work? Mobile chargers are used to transform the AC
from mains to required DC levels and then after certain rectification and filtration process the DC levels are fed to the battery for the charging purpose. In conventional charging, the charger supplies the power to the charging circuitry of the mobile through a conducting medium (a USB cord) but assume a case where this transfer of energy from charger unit to charging circuitry happens without outwardly the requirement for a physical medium?
Wireless charging is based on the principle of magnetic resonance, or Inductive Power Transfer (IPT). This process of transporting an electrical current between two objects can be achieved through the use of coils to induce an electromagnetic field. So, to understand the Concepts behind the wireless Charging, we have to go get familiar with the terminologies associated with it. The transfer of Energy from the charger to Mobile is accomplished by mutual induction, governed by the Faradays law of Induction.

 

The new iPhone 8 and iPhone X support “wireless” charging. That is, you can toss them onto a charging mat instead of plugging in a Lightning cable. Obviously this is more convenient when you’re at home — you can put a pad on your nightstand, desk or hallway table.
But there are other advantages to iPhone wireless charging that aren’t so obvious. And there is also one big disadvantage — one that has the potential to cause major damage to the Earth.
