Well folks, the holiday season is upon us, and if you're like a lot of folks, that means you're going to be doing some long distance traveling to visit family and friends. If that's the case, then chances are you've encountered this scenario once or twice. You get all packed up for your trip, get on the road, and only realize an hour into your ride that your phone is running low on battery and you've left your phone charger at home. Sounds like a real headache, doesn't it? Well, with the Qi-compatible wireless charging capabilities on many of the new Kia models for sale at Rick Case Kia, you never need worry about that problem again.

What is wireless phone charging?

Qi-compatible wireless charging is a technology that's been around for years, providing a simple and safe way to charge devices. In fact, it's largely become standard on most modern cellphones, including models like the iPhone 11, Google Pixel 4, and Samsung Galaxy S9, just to name a few. When equipped to your new Kia car of choice, the Qi-compatible wireless charging pad makes it simple to just set your phone down and watch it charge up. The system uses a resonant inductive coupling to transfer power directly to your phone without the need of cumbersome accessories, adapters, or tangled charging cords. There's not even a switch or button to turn on the system because it senses when a Qi-compatible device is in range.

How do I use the Qi-compatible wireless phone charging pad on my Kia car?

  1. Get into your Kia car and start up the ignition
  2. Locate the wireless charging pad and make sure it's clear of any objects or obstructions. Its positioning will vary from model to model, but most are positioned below the center stack or somewhere on the center console
  3. Place your phone face up on the wireless charging pad. If done correctly, your phone will begin to receive a charge
  4. Once your phone is fully charged, simply pick it up off the charging pad and you're good to go!
