    Might be a Cat5, dunno. 6 poles, looks like a standard phone plug. It's used for connecting a PIR to a lighting control module.

    RJ11 jacks are 6 pole, RJ45 (usually used with CAT5) is 8 pole.

    Are you interested in the connector or the cable?

    It's a SCART lead cable. Definitely.

    From the lack of picture, i can only assume it is the wireless part of the wireless charger

    You're welcome :)

    Doesn't matter what it is really. Any low voltage signal like that could be sent over Cat5/6 just as well.

    Rip it out and replace :)

    Well it probably is deja vu. It sounds like it.

    I'd hazard a guess it's a cable for connecting a PIR to a lighting control module.
