Inductive charging using an audio cable as the coil:
1. A method for inductively charging an electronic device, comprising:
- providing a charging mechanism which is configured to enable a user to wind an audio cable for the electronic device multiple times around the charging mechanism so that one or more conductors in the audio cable form an inductive receiving coil;
- generating a magnetic field through the charging mechanism to induce a current in the inductive receiving coil; and
- using the induced current in the inductive receiving coil to charge a rechargeable battery for the electronic device.
