2466 × 916The world is becoming wireless, and the same is also true for the world of our smartphones. Wireless charging technology has taken over, promising a hassle-free and user-friendly experience. Why are we excited about this? The Hyundai in-car wireless charging technology is the answer. The wireless charging feature now available in a range of Hyundai cars has become very popular quickly amongst potential customers.
 
With the ability to connect and sync your smartphones already in place, this wireless charging technology is all set to make your car rides more convenient. Here is everything you need to know about it.
 
What is in-car wireless charging?
A wireless charging pad or holder is mounted in the central console or within the armrest in the center. It allows the users to charge a Qi-enabled device (a smartphone) without worrying about the hassles of charging cables. This wireless charging capability is now available in many Hyundai models, either as a standard or optional feature.
 
How does it work?
Wireless charging uses induction technology that allows close range charging without the use of cables. An induction coil, generally mounted in a charging base, generates an electromagnetic field. It provides power to the device to be charged. Another induction coil, present inside your device, then converts this power into electric current, charging the battery.
 
How to use Hyundai in-car wireless charging?
Most of the Hyundai cars with this feature have a charging pad with a power button to control the functionality of this pad. A LED signal, generally, indicates when and if the functionality is turned on. Once turned on, the process is simple and straight-forward. Just place your Qi-enabled device on the charging pad in the correct position. As a precaution, make sure to remove metallic objects such as paperclips, small pins, coins, etc from the pad before charging.
 
The wireless charger in Hyundai cars is compatible with the global Qi standard, so make sure that your device is Qi-enabled. Most of the Qi-enabled smartphones, like the iPhone 8 and above, will charge directly from the charging pad. The only thing you will have to be careful about is your device's size and the charging pad.
