[* black] Would you look at that. Looks like our suspicions were correct! An inductive charging coil is adhered, and connected to, the hefty battery.
[* black] The Nexus 6 features a 3.8 V, 3220 mAh battery with a power rating of 12.2 Wh.
-[* black] The inductive coil in the Nexus 6 allows for inductive charging.
- [* icon_reminder] Inductive charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is then sent through an inductive coupling to an electrical device, which can then use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.
+[* black] We're not sure if the inductive charging feature is really catching on, but there are certainly more devices featuring it.
+ [* icon_reminder] Refresher on the science of inductive chaging: an inductive charging station drives an alternating current through a coil. The current moving back and forth in the base coil generates and collapses a magnetic field, which induces a current flow in the coil in the device. This AC current is then rectified into DC power to charge the battery.
