    Interesting thing I noticed with my Baseus “donut” wireless charger. I put my 6s with its Apple Battery Case on top of the charger just like I would put it on top of a book, coaster, etc. After an hour, the case was warm to the touch.

    I guess these things try to emit/conduct electricity even with other devices.

    why would you even do this though? wireless charging is basically electromagnets and you risk damage to non-compatible devices by exposing them to that magnetic oscillation.

    I always thought it wouldn't do anything since the other phone wasn't wireless capable. The light indicator also doesn't turn on. I guess I should've known better.

    Apologies - my response came off as a little too condescending. But yeah, the charger probably detected “something” on it and was continuously trying to establish a handshake with the device. Actual power delivery doesn’t start until the other device responds properly, but the continuous attempts in making a connection was probably what made it warm..
