I have the latest nexus Qi charging pad along with this USB car charger

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

its dual port and has one for apple and the other for non apple phones.

the non apple port has 4.2amps output max.

it charges my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 easily and fast and shows as AC charging.

the first few weeks i was able to use this car charger with the Nexus Qi charging pad no problem but now it doesnt work and the charging pad shows a RED LIGHT which means its not getting enough amps.

when I plug that car charger directly to the Nexus 5 and 7 it still charges as AC easily and fast no problem so it boggles my mind why it just stopped working with the charging pad.

What USB charger are you guys using that is still working with no issues with the charging pad?

I don't use it regularly with the wireless charger but I have tested it and it worked in the past...

For some reason the black model is no longer available from Anker, so it's very expensive compared to the white... hopefully they get it back in stock.

Charging pads only need around 0.7 or 0.8A since they only output 0.5A so you don't need anything special for them.

generally true, but the nexus one is picky
