The Science Behind
The principle that works behind the Wireless Charging feature in GMC cars is known as inductive charging. In other words, inductive charging is a system in which electricity gets passed through the magnetic fields without the help of a cable, a wire, or any other physical connection.
The charging surface is firmly integrated with the lid of the center console. Beneath that surface there lies a coil of wire through which the electricity is passed, and a small magnetic field is created. Hence when the mobile device is placed within this magnetic field, this coil reverts back to the field of electricity, that helps charging the device.

GMC made sure that all its 2018 GMC vehicles that includes cars, SUVs, crossovers, trucks and vans are equipped with these made easy connectivity features that are seamlessly integrated into the latest GMC vehicles.
