Re: I have another theory

There's only one reason I'd use Qi charging: to free the port to use USB On-the-Go. Simply put, you can't charge and use USB OTG at the same time (the design prevents this, so don't believe any ads). Thankfully, someone thought about that and at least one tablet I use has TWO USB Micro sockets: the second dedicated for OTG use.
