Hello.

 

I have a wireless charging base for my phone.

 

Last week I was gifted a portable battery thingy that has a wireless charging pad built in. (Samsung EBU1200 https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/mobile-accessories/phones/wireless-charger-portable-battery-silver-eb-u1200csegus/ )

 

I am going to presume that I should not put the portable battery on top of the phone's wireless charger, but should I keep them well away from each other as well?

Why?

The powerbank won't charge using Qi so there are no risks having it near the Qi charger.

I was hoping for something a bit more exciting too, "my grandfather left me a large container of dioxygen diflouride and I was wondering if I could dispose of it by pouring it onto the patio and waiting for it to evaporate. Maybe I could dilute it by mixing it with the box of hexanitroisowurtzitane my uncle gave me".

My uncle, who just for the record only has one eye and three fingers left, reckons it isn't.
