I know there have been comments from some people saying wireless charging is a gimmick, but I really disagree. To me wireless charging is like a scroll wheel on a mouse. When mice with scroll wheels came out I thought they were a gimmick. How hard is it to move a mouse to the right to scroll down. After using a mouse with scroll wheel, I cannot stand to have a mouse without one. It is so nice to be able to simple scroll down on a web page or in a document with needing to go to the scroll bar. Wireless charging is like that. How hard is it really to plug a phone in. However, when you have it and can simply set your phone down and have it charge, you never want to go back. I have one on my desk at work, when I get up to go to a meeting I just pick my phone up, when I get back I just set it down and it begins charging. Previously I would forget to plug my phone in or need to hunt for the end of the cable, now I do not need to worry about it. It may be a small think, but once you use it, you never want to go back.
And just to be clear when traveling I do not take a wireless charger, I only use wireless chargers where they can stay plugged in and do not need to be moved.
