Nokia Lumia 920 and wireless charging

, posted: 18-Dec-2012 15:32

When Nokia announced the Nokia Lumia 920 they also introduced wireless charging, a feature that makes charging a mobile phone as easy as leaving it on the table.

Basically Nokia has announced a series of accessories that will either charge the Nokia Lumia handsets or charge and perform other functions, such as work as a speaker set or NFC tag.

This is the Nokia Charging Plate DT-900. You plug it to the wall and any time you drop your Nokia Lumia 920 on the charging plate it will start charging. No mess plugging and unplugging cables from the phone.

Nokia wireless chargers are compatible with Qi inductive power standard. Devices can be charged up to 4cm from one another. It's pretty much the same principle used in some electrical toothbrushes you can find in your supermarket. Other smartphone manufacturers also support the Qi standard, including HTC, Samsung, LG.

Here is my Nokia Lumia 920 charging wirelessly. It even works through the Otterbox Commuter case I put it on:

From my experience charging time seems to be similar to what I'd get if using a USB wall charger.

Wireless charging is a feature on Nokia Lumia 920. If you have a Nokia Lumia 820 you can use an optional Nokia charging shell, replacing the original backing of your smartphone to achieve the same results.
