Firstly, no charging cable is needed; the smartphone has a fixed place on the desk and charges itself.

Is wireless charging faster or slower than charging by cable?

Modern systems for cordless charging are as efficient as charging cables. The latest Qi charging fields can even provide higher power ratings. Smartphones, which are equipped for this, charge themselves considerably faster than with a conventional charging cable.

The smartphone gets warm on the cordless terminal – is that normal?

Yes, this is completely normal and absolutely safe. Heat is also generated when charging by cable, but in that case on the charging cable or adapter.

How does electromagnetic radiation affect people?

The charging terminals have an extremely short range and are only activated when a smartphone is placed on them. Therefore, the radiation is extremely low and has no effect on humans.
