I see it being used to charge an iPhone via magsafe but from what I have read, you have to charge it via a cable. I have the belkin 3-1 charger and was wondering if I could just put the battery pack on there and charge it wirelessly.

The only way you can wirelessly charge the MagSafe battery is by plugging the lightning port on the iPhone with the battery is attached. The iPhone will wirelessly charge the battery. You can't charge the MagSafe pack by placing it on any MagSafe charger unfortunately. So yeah, very limited wireless experience with a MagSafe battery

Guess I will just use a regular rechargeable battery then. Thank you

Does anyone know why the Magsafe battery can't be charged by another MagSafe charger that's plugged in? Seems to me, it's the same as slapping it on the back of an iPhone that is plugged into a charger. Why doesn't it work?
