Wireless charging is a technology that allows power transfer without the requirement of a wire or cable. Generally, wireless charging can be found on wireless devices like mobile phones, tablets and wireless headphones.
Wireless charging is important for a number of reasons: it can save consumers money by allowing them to charge multiple devices at once and eliminate the need for wires; it also speeds up the process of charging as well as eliminates safety risks from electrical cords; and finally, it makes mobility more convenient.
Wireless power transfer is already an industry standard in some countries. The Mobile Power Consortium (MPC) announced in 2016 that there are more than 6 million wireless chargers installed worldwide according to their estimates.

What Causes an iPhone and Apple Watch Not to Charge With a Wireless Charger?
An iPhone is an expensive device and its battery can run out of power at any time. One way to save battery life is to use wireless chargers. There are a few things that can cause the iPhone not to charge with a wireless charger.
The first thing that could happen when using a wireless charger is it not being placed properly on the phone. This means that the center point of the charging coil needs to be in contact with the charging pad’s surface for it to work.
If this happens, your phone won’t charge because there isn’t enough contact for power transfer.
Another common problem is your phone doesn’t detect the wireless charger properly or it finds other devices with stronger fields, causing interference and lowering their efficiency. The third common problem occurs when your phone’s hardware doesn’t support fast
One of the major setbacks with wireless chargers is that they can’t charge your Apple Watch. It is not a problem with Apple, but an issue that comes from the charger itself. The main cause for this is the magnetic field generated by the iPhone when it does not charge.
Apple Watch 5 reportedly has a problem where it won’t charge wirelessly, but you have to plug it in to charge it. When you take off your combo pack from Best Buy, there are two ways to fix this issue:
- A) Use another charger that meets the specs of an Apple charger
- B) Contact Best Buy and ask them to replace your combo pack
