    I've never heard of such a thing. Though I wouldn't deem it impossible, at least to my knowledge, and I'm assuming you're talking about a phone signal.

    There are wireless qi charging options, but usually they have to be on a specific part of the charging base.

    Unless she has added wireless charging, no way.

    Did she see the charging icon come on? OR did she forget what percent her phone was at and when she looked again it was higher than what she remembered?

    I'm leaning towards this being a ripple in the time/space continuum, which is more likely than it spontaneously charging via RF or by being next to the charger. Yes, a prank or forgetfulness are the most likely.

    Did she try restarting the phone and see if the charge actually held. Maybe something triggered the charging icon/status.

    Again I don't think it would be impossible, but definitely unlikely. Another possibility is a ghost:blink:
