I was watching the local news last night. They were talking about wireless charging. The one expert, said that the newest rumor is that apple is going to introduce a wireless charger that will charge guy phone as long as you are in the same area. Calling Mt Tesla, Apple is stealing your idea, lol

This is just a story off a local news cast. If it's true, then this can be used for more devices. Another interesting thing will be. How much electricity will it take? Will it use more power then a plug in charger? Will all the people who believe in man made global warming, and keep saying every little bit helps. Will the protest Apple if the energy use is higher or be like, this is so cool, I need 2 of them....

Wireless does not make energy free. The energy comes from somewhere.

The post above is correct. Wireless charging is not free energy. It is just drawn from an outlet and then distributed to the phone via wireless means. Also this technology is not new, it has been around for a long time.

Also its on Apple phones, so who the hell cares

Significantly.

if it's anything like the wireless charger I own (but don't use, because it sucks) it does this via an induction coil- high frequency alternating current through a coil creates an electro-magnet where the poles reverse a few thousand (million?) times a second.
Place, say, a bit of steel on this and it will actually heat up- induction cooktops are a thing.
Place a copper coil on it, and it will reflect that same push/pull of electrons on its end. That can be used to gleen a few miliamps- but it's terribly inefficient.

Yup....had it on my Droid Max years ago. Convenient as hell but slower than when plugged directly into the charger. Great to lay the phone on when charging overnight though...

They're not talking about the Android style wireless charging. They are talking about actual wireless charging, no mat to set it on. It'll "beam" electricity to the device from a few feet away, like picking up a radio signal.

That isn't something Android has.

And, btw -- Android is just a poor man's knock off of the iPhone with gaudy, tacked on, useless features and poor memory management and a fragmented OS adoption.
