Great Qi charger for the Nexus 4


I don't know if you guys have been searching for Qi chargers like I have, but if you have, you've probably been disappointed by: unreasonably high prices, out of stock inventory, or some fatal flaw that makes the charger a challenge to use with the Nexus 4.

It says they're out of stock, and it's been that way for a while. However I ordered 2 of these on 12/23, and they were at my doorstep by 12/28. The charger works as advertised: works well with the Nexus 4 (and the lumia 920, droid DNA, and probably any other Qi enabled device). This is NOT the case for other "Qi enabled" chargers, like the one Nokia sells. There is no loud offensive beep like the LG charger, no flashy LEDs...the surface material is a gummy plastic, so the glass back of the Nexus 4 sticks really well (unlike the energizer one where the phone slides right off). It has such a great grip, in fact, that I am holding the charger perpendicular to the ground, the the Nexus 4 does not slide off! It also charges just as quickly as it does from the MicroUSB slot. It does get a bit warm, but nothing outside of the normal temperature range

My only complaint is that it is a tad big and not as sexy as the touchstone charger shown off by Matias, which for all we know may never be released. So for $50, I'd say this is a steal, and probably the best Qi charging solution you're going to find for the Nexus 4.
