    I've decided not to use the wireless charging for two reasons. First, it's much slower than plugging directly into the wall and, more importantly, it creates way too much heat even if it's only been on the charger for 30 minutes or so. I'm using a Samsung wireless but I'm very concerned about the heating and bulging batteries.

    Something I've been saying for like forever, heat being the byproduct of either rapid charging or wireless charging will shorten the life of the battery. However it would take a significant amount of external heat to do damage to these batteries. It's the anode which is in the center of the battery that suffers the damage due to heat. Rapid charging heats up the anode directly and to much higher temperatures so the damage happens at the point of the heat's hottest temperatures.

    I wonder what will happen with the GS7 "quick charging".
