Samsung Galaxy S4 wireless charging pad $39.99 at Verizon

Samsung Galaxy S4 wireless charging pad $39.99 at Verizon
Earlier this month, we told you that everything you needed to wirelessly charge your Samsung Galaxy S4 was available from Samsung's online store. Now, Verizon has started offering online the replacement back cover required to recharge the flagship Android model sans wires. Because the special cover uses the Qi wireless charging technology, it is compatible with the Nokia DT-500 wireless charging pad offered by Big Red. Verizon sells both the cover and the pad in a bundle for $89.98.

The back cover is available in both black and white. Because it uses the Qi technology, it can be used with any wireless charging pad that supports Qi, It just so happens that the Nokia pad is the one carried by Big Red. Just realize that if you decide to go with wireless charging and buy the replacement cover, it will add a bit of extra thickness to your Samsung Galaxy S4.

I had the wireless charging back for my galaxy s3 and it added enough thickness to the phone where I couldn't use any cases for the phone. The Nokia charging pad that I used worked perfectly, however, I had to go caseless. I would assume the same applies only the galaxy s4. Hope this helps!

my phone comes with it I have the LG Optimus G Pro - it is sweet. lay it on the chaging pad and poof it gets charged I don't have to hassle with the usb cords or anything... I use a Nokia charging plate. as long as it is a qi charging plate then all is good...
Samsung is just milking the thing here charging another $39 for something that should be part of the phone. common Samsung! give me a break, that's Apple-ish

I still am rocking a DNA which does wireless charge. Only complaint I have with the phone is that the memory isn't expandable but still pretty sweet feature.
