    Agreed! It's going to be so nice to not be tied to a power cable anymore!

    Not really, as the iPhone has to be resting on the charging pad in order to charge.

    I guess that's the downside to wireless charging?

    The advantage is that you can pick it up for something and put it down later to resume charging, without having to worry about that too short charging cable.

    The regular cable and charger is still included. The wireless charging pad is an optional accessory.
