If I wanted to buy this Case for my phone. Once I snap my phone in it. Does the case actually charge my phone? Or is it just a plain Phone Case?
The case will not charge your phone. This case makes the G4 capable of being charged wirelessly using a compatible ("qi"; pronounced "chee") charging "pad". Instead of inserting a charging cable to charge your phone, you would be able to simply put your phone on the qi charging pad (which must be plugged into the wall or other power source) to charge your phone.
A number of higher end phones have this capability built in (Nexus 4, 5, 6, 5x, 6p, Galaxy 5, 6, Note 4; others too but those are the ones I KNOW have it) without having to shell out more $ to enable it. Notably, iPhones & LG G4 don't natively support it.
