#8 − IWAS-3827EC-50 Wireless Charging Receiving Coil
For the wireless charging of 5 V portable electronics, the powdered-iron-based, WPC-compliant (Wireless Power Consortium) IWAS-3827EC-50 offers a durable construction, high permeability shielding, and high efficiency greater than 70 %. With dimensions of 38 mm by 27 mm, the device is 33 % smaller than the standard 48 mm by 32 mm IWAS-4832FF-50 Rx coil.
