Wireless Device Compatibility



Wireless charging has simplified the way we can charge our devices by eliminating the need to physically plug a cable into our phones. With wireless charging we simply place our smartphones on a wireless charger and they instantly begin to charge.

While wireless charging is becoming increasing popular, it is not currently available in all phone models. It is essential to understand if your smartphone is compatible before you purchase a wireless charger.

There are a range of competing standards when it comes to wireless charging. It is important to choose a wireless charger that supports the same wireless standard as your smartphone.

All Cygnett wireless chargers embrace Qi wireless charging, a standard also supported by popular smartphone brands like Apple and Samsung. This means you can rest assured that popular smartphones like iPhone and Samsung Galaxy will seamlessly charge on a Cygnett wireless charger.
