As it stands right now, I don't really understand the concept of wireless charging (at all). Because it is not long range, you might as well just plug it in. Not only that, wireless charging is not nearly as efficient, and, consequently, not as fast. Not sure I understand why all of these phone companies have introduced wireless charging with no obvious benefits. What are your thoughts? I am looking forward to the next generation iPhone, which is rumored to incorporate wireless charging, because Apple usually takes their own twist on the technology available, and makes it more realistic, you could say (in SOME cases). The bad news is that they are usually very late on adopting new technologies, which makes their products less cutting-edge, typically. I'm hoping for a revolution in the smartphone industry coming soon.
