Nearly everyone owns a smartphone. They've quickly transitioned from a luxury to a necessity for millions of people. In order for a smartphone to function, however, it must be charged on a regular basis, a process that's typically performed using a corded cable that connects to a wall outlet.

While most smartphones still support the use of a corded charger cable, many now offer wireless charging capabilities. How does a phone charge via wireless technology? Well, the process varies depending on the device and technology used. However, most work by transmitting power through an electromagnetic field.

The idea was first proposed by Nikola Tesla, who found that you could transfer power using an electromagnetic field. Wireless chargers leverage this same principle by featuring a loop of coiled wires wrapped around a magnet (inductor). When the electric current travels through the inductor, it creates an electromagnetic field around the magnet -- and this field is then used to transfer electricity to the phone itself.
