    I'm interested in at least trying wireless charging (to try to save my charging port some wear). However, I carry my main credit card and driver's license in a stick-on rubber sleeve on the back of my phone for convenience. I know that wireless charging utilizes magnetic induction, so would that wreak havoc on the magnetic strips on the credit card and license? Thanks!

    Apparently, yes.

    [edit]

    Except, that may apply specifically to that device's magnets (used to locate the phone on the charger).

    In another thread, Nokia warns about exposing credit cards in the manner you describe, however.
