With a new battery cover you can add wireless charging to your Droid 4.

Verizon is now selling an accessory that adds wireless charging to the Droid 4's lineup of features. The company has introduced a wireless battery cover for $39.99, which replaces the standard cover to allow for inductive charging — making it the first Verizon LTE phone to offer such an accessory without a removable battery. In order to use the wireless charging you'll also need a charging pad, which, if you don't already own one, can cost as much or more than the cover itself: Verizon's own charging pad will run you $49.99, for instance. Of course, being able to charge the Droid 4 wirelessly won't improve the device's iffy battery life, but it does make keeping that battery fully juiced a bit more convenient — and it also adds another feature to distinguish the device from the Droid RAZR.
