    Has anyone noticed whether using wireless charging instead of USB results in a lower battery life? I don't mean to say that it damages the battery, but rather that I have experienced "100%" battery capacity lasting only a few hours whereas the phone just seems to chug along the whole day if I charged it via USB. Is it possible that inductive charging could be incapable of giving the phone a full charge?

    This is 100% true. I have noticed this on numerous occasions - every time I use the pad to charge my phone it shows full battery and then dies within a few hours of use. And when I say dies, I mean it. It shows the no battery icon for a few hours with no way of switching it on (unless sometimes after an hour or so of charging I do the lock screen+volume button reset). I always press back until all apps are closed and have no running apps in the background. The only variable between a phone that lasts over a day and one that shows 100% but lasts an hour or so of light use is the damn charging pad. Now I do have a hard case which I dont take off the phone when charging on the pad so that might be playing a trick. But at the end of the day if my batter says its 100% full and it seems to be charging normally theres quite a big fail!

    I will close this thread and now that I've searched the forum, I think will probably merge the following threads too, but give them a read, I used the forum search:

    Wireless charging destroying battery?

    Wireless charging question

    Lumia 920 - Wireless charging issues

    Lumia 920 Certain apps not starting after wireless charging

    Wireless charger probs (yes another thread)

    Wireless charging pad vs AC plug

    Maybe not all of them are going to have exactly same first post but the same issue have been discussed and solutions/opinions suggested. It does feel like it's a placebo effect with wireless charging so varies from user to user, unless you get a lemon.
