Wireless Chargers – Are They Safe or Not?

Wireless chargers have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a convenient way to charge smartphones, earbuds, and other devices without the hassle of cables. However, there have been concerns raised about the safety of wireless charging, especially regarding the potential health risks associated with electromagnetic radiation.
So, are wireless chargers safe or not? Let’s take a closer look.

How do Wireless Chargers Work?
Wireless chargers use a technology called electromagnetic induction to transfer power from the charging pad to the device being charged. This is done by creating a magnetic field between two coils – one in the charging pad and one in the device. When the coils are in close proximity, the magnetic field induces a current in the device’s coil, which charges the battery.

Are Wireless Chargers Safe?

The short answer is yes – wireless chargers are safe. The electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless chargers is minimal, and well within safe limits established by regulatory bodies such as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States and the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

The electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless chargers is non-ionizing, meaning it does not have enough energy to cause ionization in atoms or molecules. This is in contrast to ionizing radiation, which is known to be harmful to human health.

However, it’s important to note that the safety of wireless chargers can depend on a few factors, such as the quality of the charger and the distance between the charger and the device being charged. Cheaper, low-quality wireless chargers may emit higher levels of electromagnetic radiation, and placing the device too close to the charging pad can increase exposure to the magnetic field.

Tips for Using Wireless Chargers Safely

To minimize any potential risks associated with wireless charging, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Use high-quality wireless chargers from reputable manufacturers.
  2. Keep the device being charged at a safe distance from the charging pad.
  3. Avoid using wireless chargers for extended periods of time.
  4. Do not use wireless chargers near medical devices, such as pacemakers.
  5. Turn off the wireless charger when it’s not in use.

Wireless chargers are generally safe to use and pose minimal risk to human health. However, it’s important to use them responsibly and follow the guidelines outlined by regulatory bodies and manufacturers. By doing so, you can enjoy the convenience of wireless charging without worrying about any potential health risks.

Thank you EMF Inspectrions Ltd for doing our Low Frequency EMF Survey. We had Galin who came to do the survey and he was brilliant. Not only was he polite but very informative and knew his stuff. We were in the process of purchasing a propery next to an electrical sub-station and was worried that the EMF could be penetrating the property. Galin went round the entire property inside and out, down the alley and in the garden and took readings. He explained the different levels of readings and reassured us that all of our readings were below the government guidelines. We are so pleased with the service. We booked on a Monday and had the survey on Wednesday (we could of had Tuesday if we wanted). The report was with us on Thursday which is brillianty written out to explain the readings for people who are not "experts". Would highly recommend using EMF Inspections Ltd to anyone. Thank you again!
