    So this could also be a tiny Qi charger for phones that support it too?

      In true Apple fashion, you can’t use just any old charger for their watches… A quick google reveals:

      Apple Watch uses the Qi wireless charging standard to negate the need for Lightning ports and cables, but you may have noticed that the device won’t charge on any Qi charger. That’s because Apple has tweaked the technology to ensure that Watch only works with its own accessories.

      So I’m guessing that means that this device won’t charge your Qi enabled phone.

    just feels like to much for what you get. 99 bucks on amazon will get you an apple watch charger ($40) and a 20100mAh charger pack
