Someone at work has brought in a charging plate.
It's a generic "Wireless - Model: A1" but seems to work quite well on my Huawei P30 Pro, even with the silicone case I have on it. Not fast charging but that's okay.

Are there any pit falls to wireless charging plates? Wondering whether I should get one for my bedroom where I charge my phone overnight (so speed isn't an issue). But worried it'll be "on" all the time and thus drawing electricity? The generic one here has a red light on all the time (which will put me off when sleeping), but it turns blue when charging.

It's the same as any other device you have plugged into the wall, it will draw a small amount of power even when not in use. Should not be any more power use than a normal charger when not actively being used to charge.
It's so little anyway as to not be much of an issue unless you have 20 of them around the house.
