> Wireless charging is fucking stupid [...]
I have to respectfully disagree. Yes, you still have to plug something in somewhere (usually usb)... But beyond that it just gets so simple.
I still have to put my phone down -- before I was hunting for a cable, or always had a cable draped over something. Ugly. Now I put the cable away, plug it in (once) and decide where the charging pad is to be. I still have to put my phone down / charge it at night -- now it's easy. I rarely have to go hunting for it either it seems.
The car charger / holding dock has saved me a few times too. There have been nights I forget to charge and in the morning the phone is at 9%. Instead of leaving in my pocket as I usually do -- just dock it in the car and it's almost fully charged by the time I get to work. It's also a great location to hold the phone when using it for navigation (rare for me).
And the other benefit is I've never worn a plug (on the phone) out like so many around me seem to do all the time. Once every so often I'll have the need to plug directly in for iTunes, sure -- then just unplug the case from the phone (good cases won't require you to remove them from the phone IMHO) and plug in for iTunes (my choice :). Easy.
I gone as far as to add Qi receivers to old unsupported iPad's -- they're ugly as fuck stick on the back of the device / one size fits all ... but they sure do work. Just set the iPad down under the monitor (here) and it's charging. iPhone and old iPhone now used as a remote for TV more than anything too.
Ugh -- I'd always be unplugging and plugging shit in all day long. Instead I just set them down [charging]. Too easy.
