Advantages and Disadvantages of a Desk Qi Wireless Charger
If you were searching for a desk Qi wireless charger, then you would be well advised to search for one that is built into the desk. Why? Simply because Qi wireless charging cables are not just expensive but also dangerous. You may very well have been shocked by the fact that a Qi wireless charger is not just as safe and secure as its wired equivalent - it's much cheaper (but still dangerous).
A Qi wireless charger is just an extension of your laptop or computer, and it will end up causing you all sorts of problems. First, they are far too bulky and take up precious desk space. Second, their wires can easily get entangled with other wires, creating yet another pile of clutter on your desk. Thirdly, because they are wireless, they could easily get lost and end up in the wrong hands. That's right, you could very easily find yourself in the hands of some malicious person or group of people who have a grudge against you!
It's best to keep your charger safely tucked away out of sight, neatly and securely in its own compartment. This is particularly true if you use the charger while you are working. For example, you could keep it on your desk, and place it on your bed side table while you are reading. You never know when you'll accidentally place the Qi charger in the wrong hands - the last thing you want is for it to come into contact with power circuitry.
The bottom line is, Qi wireless chargers and wired chargers are both very dangerous and should be kept away from one another. One should always buy a Qi charger which is built into the desk itself. This is especially true if you use the charger while you are working. You never know when you could accidentally set it off.
If you do purchase a Qi wireless charger and leave it on your desk or bed, you could run the risk of it being turned on by somebody else. This can pose a serious risk and could see your electronic equipment destroyed. This is why you should ensure that it is kept away from where it will not be disturbed and that it stays on a secure surface. You can purchase a simple padlock to hang it on your desk. Many modern home offices include these locks as standard - so you won't lose anything if you do buy a Qi wireless charger.
A wired charger is quite safe to leave on your desk as it plugs in straight into your laptop or desktop computer. However, some people feel that using this type of charger is less safe than a Qi wireless charger. This is simply because Qi chargers can be stolen. They are often kept under lock and key, which means that even if you accidentally leave them on your desk, anybody who has access to your computer can easily steal the Qi charger. You would be at a great disadvantage if you did leave your Qi charger on your desk - so you would be far better off buying a wireless Qi charger.
You also need to consider the amount of power that you plan to use your wireless charger for. You don't want to buy a Qi charger that has a maximum output of 1A because it will only ever give you enough power to operate a tiny appliance such as your calculator. If you do use an appliance with a high power output then you may find that the battery life of your Qi wireless charger tends to run out far too soon. If this happens you may find that you cannot charge the battery at all and will have to purchase a new Qi charger.
Wireless charging can also be dangerous if it is used in places where there are small children or pets. The last thing you want is for a child to drop their cell phone onto the Qi wired charger, causing it to overheat and catch fire. This could unfortunately happen if you were using a wired charger, so this could be a serious safety issue if you work from your desk. It could even result in serious injury if the phone was to get pushed into the wall socket by the Qi wireless charger.
