The Nokia DT-910 is a very nice stand though you do really need to open it up and move the charge coil up a bit to get the best connection, not absolutely necessary to make the charger work but if you do it only gets slightly warm during charging. Perfect if you use the phone as a speakerphone all day as I do as it also projects the sound well and microphone is very clear for those on the other end apparently.

I've set up Tasker so that when I place it on the stand it automatically switches to speakerphone and makes the screen stay on during calls, it also disables the lockscreen and the screen can be woken by 'stroking' the proximity sensor, everything back to normal when you take it off again. It has an nfc tag built in but it's more convenient just to use connecting to a wireless charger as a trigger.

The Tylt Vu. It's a nice looking wireless charger that tilts up at a 45 degree angle while it charges. It has 3 charging coils in it, so it will pretty much charge no matter what position you place your phone in on the stand: vertical, horizontal, upside down, it doesn't matter. I really like it and it looks pretty nice on my desk.

Yes. Reading that is a MUST if you are thinking about the Vu.

Been using the Tylt Vu since before the Kickstarter ended. They sent me one of the first retail versions and I only had a heating issue on my Nexus 4 running a custom rom. On my N5, it's been perfect for me. I am stock and unrooted. No heating issues at all.

BTT: The Vu is nice, but has a big footprint. I personally use it at home next to the bed. At work, I have the orb. There are a few orb type ones that people have been using successfully. Or you can grab a LG charging pad. Once you take the speaker out, it's also a great charging pad IMO.

I've been trying to find photos of a teardown. I have a couple of these and one works so-so, the other barely works at all. I already figured out it was due to the height of the coil. How do you open this up, and how far did you move the coil up? Thanks
