Hey Alexa, “What’s the best wireless portable wireless charger in 2020?”
Every couple of years I come across a new technology worth exploring, this is the first that I’m writing about one – Portable Wireless Chargers. Why? Because ever since I decided to lease my Samsung S8 Plus it’s been a ‘hot’ technology .. Yes, I did say ‘lease’, don’t ask.
As with the invention of the microwave as well as WiFi and Cellular antenna’s, I have shied away from wireless charging. The way I look at it is, although a microwave may only have a 0.000001% chance of affecting you – if I did my numbers right – this means that 1 out of a million people may get cancer as a result of using one. My numbers may be skewed, but they’re certainly not far off.. I think you get the picture. The same as I do with my microwave, I stand away from my wireless charger while my phone is charging.. Paranoia, maybe? Safety first? Yes! BTW – I have a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering as well as a Master’s degree in Computer Engineering. Not that this makes me an expert in radiation effects – one thing that I do know is that workers that support wireless antennas on cellphone towers – they are prohibited from being within a certain distance to them while they are tunred on.
Regardless of my digression, a few months after I leased my Samsung S8 Plus, my wired USB-C connection failed on me. Since then, I have always been able to get away with my wall connected wireless charger, until my recent vacation to Disney. Wow, did this make me re-think how reliable my communication devices (ie. cellphone) were, so I looked into portable wireless chargers and have learned alot since.
