What is Qi Wireless Charging? Wireless charging uses electromagnetic fields to transfer power from the charging base to your smartphone. 

What does that mean? You no longer have to plug a cable into your smartphone. The cable is now attached to a charging base, where you can easily place your phone on the charging base and you’re done.
