Doesn't having a larger footprint result in more heat generated which will deteriorate battery life, and I csnt imagine Apple putting a fan in such a small matt so it will be just for standard wireless charging. I only paid £30 for my Samsung wireless confertible charger and I thought that was a rip off!!!.
