Will wireless charging take over from the more traditional wired method and become the one to use from now on? People never stopped asking this question, today let's have a analysis of this problem.
The reasons why wireless will take over from wired charging is quite simply, wireless charging means that you just drop your handset devices onto the charging dock and things get to work without having to plug anything into your phone, which is significantly easier and convenient than traditional wired charging.

Advantages of Wireless Charging:

A) No need to deal with the messy cables any more !

First, let's have a look of someone's answer to a posting on "Wireless charging benefits".Just imagine the situation: no need to plug & unplug a cable every time you need to charge your phone, simply drop your phone on the charging pad and it starts charging without doing anything else. Everything looks elegant and neat; you don't need to worry about where you left your cable, or charger for that matter.Having said that, it doesn't mean that all the wires have gone, you still need a wire for your charging base to be connected with the power supply.

B) It reduces the wear and tear on your device.

Why? As I mentioned earlier, wireless charging doesn't need cables, which means there's no need for a USB port anymore which removes the strain on the cable, the charging plug and the phone's USB/Lightning port.Furthermore, it enables manufacturers to improve the performance of your device by making them completely waterproof and dustproof, making them easier to maintain.

C) It enables multiple smartphones to charge simultaneously instead of taking all kinds of cables with you.

If you travel a lot and you have several different phones, for example, an Apple iPhone and an Android smartphone, you will be familiar with the fact that you will also need to carry both a micro USB cable and a lightning cable with you as well as a few chargers to power them when you run out of battery.
However, if all of these smartphones are wireless charging enabled, a wireless charging pad becomes the "one size fits all" solution.Fortunately, cell phones and chargers from different manufacturersare compatible so one pad can keep all your phones topped up with power.

D) Wireless Charging is a safer way to transfer power to your  phone,which avoids putting your personal safety and data at risk.

Unlike plugging in a device, wireless charging transmits power without actually touching any exposed electrical connectors.  In another words, this reduces the chance of a connection failure and electric shocks.  If that doesn't convince you, check this news article about the danger of using your phone while charging. Shockingly, several many injuries and even death has been linked to improper use of cables or cellphones while charging.  Sounds scary, right? But it happens.  Wireless charging can be safer because as soon as you pick it up the charging stops. There is also a lesser-known risk associated with "plugging in to public USB  chargers".These free USB public charging hubs can send and receive data while you are not aware of it, which is yet another reason why wireless charging is better.

E) Lastly, it makes your desk tidy and nice looking! 

Yes, no obvious wires means that wireless charging looks cleaner when compared to the mess of charging cables. Clearly,wireless charging gives you a much cleaner look when compared with traditional cable charging.

The drawbacks with wireless charging that prevent it from being used everywhere.

A) Wireless charging is slower and less efficient than wired charging.

Sinretech found that a Samsung Galaxy S10 can charge from zero percent to 100 percent battery power in 1.48 hours if you plug it in and charge over a wired connection. Whereas, wireless charging takes 2 hours, little bit longer than the wired charging solution.
They also found that as wireless charging takes more time to top up your phone, it will take more power to completely charge your phone too.


B) Wireless charging usually makes your phone overheat which can harm your battery.

There are many discussions around whether or not "wireless charger heat harms your battery" among those who have started charging their phones wirelessly. .
Wireless charging usually generates a bit of waste heat and can even make the phone battery overheat when compared to the conventional cable charging. Some of that wasted power will be in the form of excess heat and the heat will translate to more wear and tear on the battery.
So how does the overheating caused by wireless charging damage your phone battery?
Let's think about this: the best rechargeable batteries on the market, generally, are lithium-ion batteries. But what you might not aware of is that these batteries  have limits when it comes to overheating.  The heat will speed up the aging of your battery every time your phone battery gets exposed to high temperature.

 

c) Wireless charger is slightly expensive than common cables

Check the price for cable and wireless charger on Amazon, you will find that most of the cables are less than $10 while usually, a wireless charger costs $20 more or less.  That's quite a big difference.

Summary:

Apple has gotten into the wireless charging game indicates that it is now going mainstream and consumers should prepare for a new era that has fewer cables in their lives. After all, wireless charging has created many positive changes as it alleviates multiple problems and inefficiencies that are closely tied to connecting devices and chargers into outlets.We are 100%  sure that wireless will become more and more popular in a faster speed.
