Wireless charging means you don't have to plug in your phone, tablet or other gadget.
Instead you rest it on a pad or a stand and a charge transfers through magnetic induction.

There's no funding for cords with wireless chargers rest your phone or other gadget and that's it.
A stand would be convenient at a desk to cradle your phone and charge it while you're not using it.
While a pad might be handy on your nightstand for overnight charging.
