In fact, it’s normal that this happens. However, wireless chargers don’t generate as much heat as wired chargers, helping to extend the lifespan of your cellphone.

Also, wireless car chargers don’t represent any danger to the user. But, that isn’t exactly the case of wired chargers. Users in different parts of the world have been severely injured by using their cellphones while they’re still connected to the charger.

Also, wireless chargers aren’t compatible with all types of cellphones. Usually, phones from years below the launch of this new technology can only be charged through wired methods. And the main reason why wireless chargers have failed to overcome the popularity of wired models is because many people in the world don’t have enough money to buy a new cellphone with wireless charging features.

Now that you know the myths and truths about wireless cellphone chargers, it's up to you to consider the pros and cons and decide if they really are the most convenient option for you.
