Cool but pricey for a coil and a magnet wrapped around with plastic. You are basically playing for the technology built in the phone.

Bought it and received it on Friday. Its fantastic, a lot smaller than i was originally expecting (which is a hug plus). It is great for people with jobs at a desk (yours truly) as it saves the hassle of plugging your phone in and out while going away from you desk. just sit down, plop it on the charger and you're good to go. Price isnt TOO bad, seeing as how a basic flat charger (energizer) goes for $45 without shipping. I love the angled face so that i can look at emails, texts, streaming radio, and anything else while not having to pick up the phone.

Love mine too, picked it up after getting my tax return. After having my N4 slide off the sofa arm rest while being plugged into the usb charger, I knew this was something I wanted to pick up, regardless of the price being on the higher end. It's worth it to have peace of mind and the ability to just grab your phone and go.

If it was $39.99 plus the shipping and tax I would jump on it, but $59.99 plus the shipping + tax is around $71. Little too much for me.

This should only be $20. Maybe $30 if they wanted to be uppity.
Google is a big failure on accessories for the Nexus 4.
Otherwise I love the phone.

Show me a wireless charger for $20 or $30. I bet you'l have a hard time finding one. They are all around this price.

I bought this for my DNA. I really like it. It doesn't get hot, looks cool, charges pretty quickly. I wish it was cheaper, but oh well.... Hope the next HTC flagship has wireless charging built in, cause I'm sure I'll have to get one. :D

Remember the Palm Touchstone costs $75! when it came out. But it also did a lot more than the Orb.
