I agree. I would not perform this mod at all, ever.Not true wireless, either. Magnetic contacts still need to make contact, hence not wireless. True wireless would charge even when placed with a perspex sheet between charging pad and phone/tablet etc.Although as the soldered wires are terminated to the USB connector's legs, short-circuit protection is still available. Think about the fact that if the USB cable is shorted out, cut by your friendly pet rabbit (yes this has happened to me) no damage is done to the phone. The mains adapter perhaps, but they 'should' have some protection built in.
