Having upgraded to an iPhone with a wireless charger option (yes I know android and palm did it for years).

Are the chargers worth the money or just a gimmic? Does any one use them, which can you recommend?

cheers

If you’ve got your wireless charger plugged in then you could just as easily plug in a regular charger at zero additional cost. Sure you have to put a tiny wire into the bottom of your phone which takes, like, a second, but so what.

I had never thought of that.. unless i want to listen to music as well, via headphones.

I used to think that, but the convenience of just being able to drop the phone down on the charger and pick it up without faffing is great.

It also means that you can effectively use a normal Micro USB cable to charge your iPhone rather than a Lightning cable, and also saves any wear and tear on said cable(s) or the charging port.

There's any number of sled-style desktop chargers like this on Amazon for £15-20. Pretty much any of them will work fine. I like them plenty.

Do you need to take the case off of a phone to wirelessly charge it? Having to do that would instantly destroy any utility of it for me.

No, unless it's some sort of super rugged one, or it has metal in it. The cheap charger on my desk will work across a distance of at least a centimetre.

My Samsung won't wirelessly charge unless I take the case off, so I instantly binned that idea. It's more hassle than plugging in a cable.

Mine charges through my Apple case. Even despite the presence of a metal plate in the back of it (so I can use magnetic phone holders in the car)

Worth noting that if you’re some type of fucking caveman who voluntarily uses cables when wireless exists, you will scratch your phone with the cable, and the scratches will be cosmetic damage and reduce value should you put it in for recycling.

Somehow my car has a load of scratch marks around the driver's side keyhole. Explain that.

Your car doesn't have wireless charging, so story checks out.

When you fail to put the key in the keyhole sometimes you scratch the paint around the keyhole instead.

You spilled your food there while opening the door, and a hungry squirrel ate off the paint.

Cheers folks
