Unlocking the Power of Reverse Charging with Wingo 30: A How-To Guide
Oct 09, 2023
With the iPhone 15 finally adapting to the uniformity of USB-C, long-time iPhone users are finding themselves in a strange new world of phone charging. While Apple is selling additional dongles to ease users into the world of USB-C from Lightning cables, there is a better way.
What if there was a charger on the market that allowed iPhone users to continue to use their Lightning to USB-C cables, negating the need for dongles or purchasing additional cables? That's exactly what the Wingo30 charger offers. A compact way to use all standard forms of charging, in whatever direction you choose.
With reverse charging, the Wingo30 stands apart from standard power banks and phone charging blocks. In fact, it stands alone. Here's how the advantages of using the Wingo30 to charge your devices solidly puts you in a new class of technology user.
The benefits of reverse charging
To this point in the universe of power banks and phone chargers, you'd be hard pressed to find reverse charging capability outside a few specific smartphone models. These smartphones generally only charge other smartphones through direct contact wireless charging, and are limited in speed, availability, and versatility. Basically, unless you carry two smartphones, the current standard of reverse charging is near useless.
There are a few clear benefits with the new paradigm of reverse charging available in the Wingo30.
- Convenience — instead of carrying several chargers for all your mobile devices, you only need to carry one. With dual-charging capability, you don't even have to charge your devices one at a time. Charge your iPad next to your Android phone, or your iPhone 15 and another iPhone with the same type of cable.
- Less cables — with reverse charging you have several easy options for charging with less cables. USB-C to Lightning charges the same no matter the orientation. So if your partner has a Lightning cable and you need to charge your Android phone, it's not a problem with the Wingo30. Turn the cable around and get charging.
- Simultaneous charging — similar to a power bank, you have multiple options for charging, all at the same time. Either through the USB-A port, USB-C, or Lightning, two devices can draw a charge at the same time. An option usually reserved for more expensive power banks, it's a built-in feature of the Wingo30.
Multiple device utilization
Chances are you live in a mixed household. That doesn't mean you have dogs and cats living together in mildly peaceful harmony, it means someone lives in the Apple ecosystem and someone else resides within Google's world of Android. Or you could be the Android honk and all your kids use iPhones. And kids always lose their cables and charging blocks.
Once you add a few Wingo30's to the household and included Lightning to USB-C cable, it won't matter what device everyone favors, because you can charge it. And if it's some other device with a proprietary charger to USB-A, you can charge that too.
All the ports
The Wingo30 charger includes all three ports you'd need to charge a mobile device. And if you have an iPhone 15, you get to choose which one you prefer. USB-A covers standard charging cables with any type of connection on the device end. USB-C accounts for most modern mobile devices, including almost all Android smartphones and tablets, the iPhone 15, and other random devices like Bluetooth headphones and vapes. And the Lightning port takes care of older iPhones and iPads (and your yellowed iPod).
The most versatile charging option
Reverse charging is not a totally new concept. But it's difficult to compare the reverse charging option in the Wingo30 with other charging blocks on the market, because its the only charger currently equipped with reverse charging. And at first, it might seem like a simple thing, but think about how long you've been charging devices, and how many cables you've purchased over the years.
Potentially, with reverse charging entering the market in the Wingo30, you can cut your cable costs in half. You'll never need to dip into the bucket of old cables and charging blocks to get the right charger for your device, the Wingo30 covers them all. This makes it the most versatile portable charger available today, and negates the need to carry a plethora of cables for your devices when on the go.
Dongles are a thing of the past, and the Wingo30 and its reverse charging is available now from Wingo.
