    I checked but couldn't find any. With fewer phones having swappable batteries and wireless charging catching on throughout the industry, I guess it is only a matter of time before someone invents a case or clip-on that wirelessly charges phone battery. Then, when convenient, the accessory itself can be plugged in and charged up. Yes, it will add some bulk to the phone but that's better than being tethered to an outlet or caught with a dead phone.

    we have a couple of those little "bricks" you carry with a USB cord to quick charge the phone. They are pretty decent, and charge easily with a USB themselves.

    Duracell made a PowerMat brand with various matching cases. I know there was one for the iPhone 5

    I may have misunderstood your question you mean a battery case that wirelessly charges the internal phone battery? Nope haven't seen that either. As our3rotts said, a USB portable charger does the trick.

    I am struggling to more accurately describe what I envision. Lets start with the idea of wireless charger. But in order for that thing to charge the phone, the charger itself must be plugged into an outlet. So how about including a battery into the charger itself something like the RAVPower. Then, you'd have a wireless charger that is truly portable. Like the RAVPower, it could be charged at a more convenient time when an outlet is available. Unlike the RAVPower, you wouldn't need a USB cable connector between it and the phone.

    Is this it?

    On Amazon the price is $89 or $99 if you need the wireless receiver for your phone.

    Cook idea.

    Yes, that is exactly what I was looking for. Price a bit steep. I suppose cost will come down over time. Thanks for finding that! ;)

    I just picked one out on ebay for around $15 so hopefully it will work good. I had bought a cheaper one before but it didn't have enough power to fully charge my phone even once.

    We have one that we bought, one that was a giveaway at a conference.
    They both work decent. Charge fast.
