This could be handy under the right circumstances, but why USB-C input and USB-A output? That feels borderline outdated already, and by not settling on one, now you have to carry at least two different kinds of connections if you want to use this wired.

No PD charging? And the wireless output is not even 7.5? This isn’t good enough for many iPhone users and I cannot imagine a single Android user wanting this...

The reason this is not more common is because mobile charging is not the time you want to be wasting a bunch of power with inefficient wireless charging. Plug your phone into the thing, how hard is that? You need a 10kmAh bank just to make up for how much of it you're throwing away by using wireless charging.

Seriously. This seems like a solution in search of a problem.

I have a different brand but can say this is really useful as a mobile professional frequently up and away from desk-for-the-day and frequently using my phone.

Just set my phone down on the Qi power bank and it keeps charge throughout the day. No fussing with cables etc.

Then at the hotel at night it serves as a charging hub. Plug it into power source, then set phone on top and airport case plugged into a USB port. Come morning everything’s all charged.

Not everyone has this use case, but it does exist.

Can I assume you can wirelessly charge an WATCH?

as far as my Apple Watch goes, it only charges with the one it came with.

—-

the use case of this seems very limited. Would take forever to charge and usually you get a powerbank cuz you want to keep your phone alive when u r out and about, not when u r just chilling somewhere with enough time to have it sit down in one place? And in those cases it would just be faster to charge it the normal way

Fair points! For me the battery thing is more of an emergency measure, and I'm more likely to actively be using my phone *while* I'm charging it, in which case a cable actually makes it easier because the phone doesn't have to be pressed up against the battery/charger to charge up.

Honestly, for times when I think I'm going to be seriously drawing my battery down, I find a battery case to be most convenient of all since it's just a single unit. I'm not super likely to drain the case and my internal battery in a day, and at night I just do as you do and plug the battery case in to charge and wake up to everything being at 100%. To each their own!
