Default Official Google Nexus Wireless Charger

I just placed an order for this on Google Play. It says

"Totally wireless charging.
With the Nexus Wireless Charger, your new Nexus 7 becomes the first truly wireless tablet. No more messing around with wires, cables and plugs as€“ your tablet just fits into place on the magnetic face and begins charging. The Nexus Wireless Charger adheres securely to any surface, such as your desk, counter top or bedside table, which means“ the convenience of grab-and-go charging is always within easy reach."

Nothing about whether it will be suitable for use as a car cradle. We will see.

Here is a mini review.
Current Phone: Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) | Stock 4.4.2, Rooted, TWRP.
Previous Phones: Siemens S25 | Siemens S35 | Nokia 7110 | Nokia 7650 | HTC Himalaya | HTC Alpine | Samsung D500 | HTC Magician | Samsung I300 | HTC Artemis | HTC Kaiser | HTC Diamond | HTC Leo | Galaxy Nexus (Maguro)

I'm looking at it right now and wondering whether or not I'd actually use it. I have the Nexus 4 charging orb, and a Nokia DT900 (or whatever the lay-down version is called). I use the orb at work while I listen to music and the DT900 at home while sitting in my recliner watching TV/playing games. If I bought another charger, it would probably be my bed-side charger. In that case, I almost would rather buy another orb because of the angle it provides. I can fit my Nexus 7 on the orb as long as it's in landscape orientation, which is probably how I'd have it anyway. Decisions, decisions...

I'm hoping that the magnetic face on this new charger will be strong enough to hold the Nexus 5 in a vertical position. Doubtful though.

Oh, like stand it up? For some car mount or something? Hey, if it were strong enough to actually do that I might buy it. Let me know how that goes and I might end up buying that one instead of another orb.

Yeah, that's my thinking. To use it in the car as a wireless charging mount. I am not skilled enough to do the hardware mods people are showing on this forum so hoping for this.

I should have it in a couple of days and will report back.
