Re: Niche use case

Niche indeed.

The only real benefit that i can think of from wireless charging is that now that most* phones don't have a headphone socket, but give you a nice usb - headphone dongle, then you can plug your headphones / speakers/whatever in, and still charge.

Good for in a car, you can have wireless pad (plugged in by a wire into the cars USB socket) and the phone plugged into the stereo
