The functionality is there and works using a micro-USB charger to charge with magnetic connector. BUT only in relief, which is my case ... if I forget my charger ... (hatch openings to micro usb really does not seem made to be handled often) The main problem: the magnetic positioning system is very imprecise and unstable by design. The slightest movement disconnects. The magnet is not very strong but enough so well positioned. impossible to use by touching the such. For my part I added foam to position the connector.
