The 21st century has been noted as the era of technological development with electronic devices being used on an astronomical scale throughout the globe. Nowadays, the need for a fully functioning electrical system to operate devices is not a luxury but a necessity. Taking this into account, it is obvious that the need for battery chargers is essential to keep the electrical devices ‘up and running’.
In previous years, it was necessary to charge any electrical device using a specific charger at a power outlet. Fortunately, the incessant need to use technological equipment has been noted, and it is now possible to use portable chargers for any device. In fact, many devices can utilize the same portable charger dependent on the manufacturer. For example, a Samsung mobile phone and tablet can be charged without having to alter the battery charger. This is not always recommended, but it is possible.
Due to the fact that every electronic device requires electricity to operate, it is necessary to keep a portable charger at hand. The amount of charging to be conducted will often depend on the type of device and the rating of the batteries in use. Certain devices can withstand a constant sustained charging source and are not affected if the source remains in place once the battery is fully charged. Conversely, other devices will cut off the current to the batteries once the charger has fully charged the battery. Nowadays, the former is the most common form of portable charging style. Here is a good site that details a few different types of portable chargers.
Despite the importance of the portable charger and the fact that one can use a single charger for many mobile devices, one must note that there are different types of battery chargers available. One charger to consider is the induction charger. The induction charger uses electromagnetic induction transmitted by inductive coupling. This type of charger is most commonly used in areas where there is a chance of electrocution, such as electronic toothbrushes.
While the induction charger is beneficial, the most popular form of portable charger is the USB connection. The micro-USB connection was developed to connect a USB cable to a mobile device allowing for battery charging. The typical voltage charge on these connections stands at approximately 5-5.25 volts making them ideal for situations that require low voltage. Since 2009, the majority of mobile phone providers are working to standardize the use of micro-USB connections as an interface for mobile phone battery charging.
