Yeah mine charge fine in either orientation. Some times I watch video on it in landscape. But I usually have it in portrait.

Do you use a case with your Nexus? If so, does that interfere with the induction charging?

I use the diztronic tpu case and it works just fine with my TYLT. No overheating issues either.

Where did you read that? Source?

I haven't really found anything comparing the two. Does anyone have both? Or have seen both?

Which would you prefer and why?

I have the Tylt Vu, the new Nexus Charger, the Orb, the LG (Verizon branded) pad, and the Energizer pad.

I have had the Tylt Vu even before the Kickstarter finished lol. It just showed up at my office one day. I got it for my Nexus 4. Worked fantastically until I tried putting Kit Kat on the N4. I had heating issues and I believe due to wakelocks, but that's not proven. I stopped using it because it kept waking the phone up at night and that bugged the living bejezzus out of me and changed it out for the LG pad until a fix for my waking issues on the N4. Then when the N5 was introduced, it was a no brainer and I bought that one to replace my N4. I gave the LG pad and N4 to my wife and now using the Tylt at home for my everynight charging and no waking in the middle of the night.

I use the new Nexus Wireless charger in the car in conjunction with a vent mount. And because I use a bumper, the magnets grab without issues. I tried my set up with a tpu case and also the Ringke Fusion and neither would stick.

Now I am waiting for my early bird Air dock from indiegogo and seeing if that works better than my diy setup lol.

So I used it and it does get noticeably warm. I haven't experienced it getting hot yet though. The official charger gets my nexus 5 temperature to around 25.5 degrees celcius and the tylt gets my phone to around 37 degrees celcius. I'm not totally sure which one I want to keep yet.

I don't think that's too abnormal. My phone idles at 30 degrees and charges at 40-45 via USB.
