We are not sure how it works to ensure wireless charging aren’t periodically disconnect, but in case it fails, there is always the USB route. Pretty neat, eh? Called Mexxenger (note: not a type, btw), it is just about as high-tech as it says it is. Apart from wireless charging, it has a non-critical-to-a-bag use but yet interesting enough feature called Smart Badges.
