I found a nice wireless charger online, but due to the fact that I haven't bought a wireless charger before, I have no idea if the specifications it has are any good. Here's a link : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A1E57UY6AMKO25



What do you guys think?

I bought the same one. Had it for about a week now, and with no problems charging the phone.

My only issue is trying to find a case for the phone that doesn't slide off the charger. Both spigen cases I have bought, the phone slides off after a few minutes. Without a case, the phone stays on beautifully. However, I like to keep my phone in a case all the time. Any suggestions?

Try attaching some thin magnets on the surface of the charger. You could alternatively buy some magnet tape and apply that.

I also found this one that looks fine but there are no reviews so I'm a little bit hesitant. http://www.amazon.com/PThink-Qi-Enab...ywords=qi+coil

That really depends on where the coils are located on that device. It looks like it should work, if you are going by the qi mark in the center, because the coil on the N5 is close to the center of the phone.

EDIT: I see they say it has three coils. If that is the case, then it's like the Tylt VU where it has three or so coils.

Those specs are good. It's the same 1000mA output as most Qi chargers. If the output is rated below 1000mA then don't buy it.

That's odd. I have the same off-brand (bought mine on NewEgg, but it looks to be the same one) Qi charger and I've not had any kind of slippage issues with mine.

Took it on a trip recently, and it held up just fine without slipping when I was using my Ringke Slim case. And-- needless to say-- I have no slipping problems when I'm not traveling, and go caseless on my N5.

I always did prefer the Nexus Orb charger look!
