Wireless charging pad for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 on the way
0. phoneArena 31 Oct 2013, 14:00 posted on
The wireless charging orb for the Nexus 4 was a nice device, but it was expensive, and it could be annoying because the rubber would attract dust which would then cause your Nexus 4 to slide off the charger and not charge. Google hasn't mentioned yet if the Nexus 5 will work with that old charger (presumably it will), but Google is also going to release a wireless charging pad soon...

yea I had the Orb with my Nexus 4 and I was never able to get the thing to stay on. It would always slide off after about 10 mins. I ended up getting a Nokia one and it obviously stayed on better. I do miss having that ability.

I have the Orb. All you need to do is clean the rubber when it gets dusty and the phone sticks perfectly.

All I can say is thank goodness they went with the Qi standard.
Screw the powermatters alliance. All they're doing is trying to profit at the cost of destroying the possibility of having a wireless charging standard for the world.

I'm planning on getting the getting some of the Nokia DT900 or one of the Energizer ones that charges 2 at the same time. I have a feeling that the Nexus charger is going to be pricey.
