Embodiments of the present disclosure provide techniques and configurations for controlled power level adjustment of a wireless charging apparatus. In one instance, the apparatus may comprise a charging module to radiate an electromagnetic field to wirelessly charge an electronic device in proximity to the wireless charging apparatus; and a control module communicatively coupled with the charging module to adjust a power level of the electromagnetic field, radiated by the charging module, in response to a determination of an environmental condition in relation to the wireless charging apparatus. The control module may be configured to receive information indicative of the environmental condition from multiple sources distributed between the apparatus and the electronic device, and make the determination based at least in part on the received information. The environmental condition may comprise a presence of human tissue in proximity to the wireless charging apparatus. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.
