FAQ

How does wireless charging work?

Wireless power, also known as inductive coupling, uses narrow magnetic fields that are a natural part of how electrical current moves through wires. It starts by creating a magnetic field around a hidden electrical coil. The receiving device has a hidden coil that can receive the magnetic energy created, thereby transferring power wirelessly.

What do I need to charge my device?

All new major smart phone brands (iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X & Samsung Galaxy S6, S7 & S8 ranges) already include built-in support for wireless charging. If your device does not have this capability, you can enable your device by plugging a wireless charging adapter ring (sold separately) into its charging port or by using a case specifically designed for wireless charging.

Do you offer an adapter for my existing devices?

We offer a Wireless Charging Ring which acts as an adapter. It comes in several different variations depending on the type of device you have. The Ring is plugged into your device’s charging port and acts as a receiver of the magnetic energy created by the technology embedded in the Corian® solid surface.

Is the Charging Unit available for residential or commercial applications?

Both. For all applications, we offer the Individual Wireless Charging unit. This is a single charging unit that, once installed, is a plug-and-play system that works instantly for those who are ready to power up. With the ability to install one or a series of units for multiple users, the Individual unit creates a seamless solution for most settings.

Is wireless charging faster than wired charging?

Wireless charging receivers will charge your phone at approximately the same rate as wired charging.

Can you charge other devices besides smartphones?

Yes, the Corian® Charging Unit uses technology that is scalable and versatile. It can be used to charge a range of devices depending upon the specific makeup of the wireless charging spots. Most wireless charging spots are initially configured to support smartphones and other devices, such as small tablets. Larger tablets may charge, but at a much slower rate.

Can a laptop be charged?

No. A laptop requires higher energy to charge so it either may fail to charge at all or will charge at a much slower rate. However, Corian® Charging Unit has scalable technology and has the ability to upgrade to laptop compatibility when this technology becomes available.

How close does my device need to be to the charging spot to charge wirelessly?

The device must be directly on top of the charging spot. This ensures that the transmitter in the charging spot and the receiver in the device can transmit power.

Can I use my phone while its charging?

Yes, provided it is within range of the charging spot.

How many devices can be charged at once?

One device can be charged per charging spot.
