So what's the chance US gets a Qi compatible charging back that's not QuickCircle?

Tip us?

No way....Thats a ****ing tragedy! Need to get a euro back cover then...thats the only way.

I've been trying to find a Euro case for a week now. Nothing available yet. I'm willing to bet we'll see a quickcircle case for another carrier with QI before I find a European back.

There is this that looks decent ( Ebay Back ) but I'm waiting to find a cheaper one, or for them to offer it in black so I don't have to cannibalize.

Thats not such a bad price...just take the sticker off of that one. I wish i could order a Burgundy lg g3...thats a hot phone. You can get the back cover here so i guess i could mix and match lol http://www.ebay.com/itm/Battery-Back...item3a92db7ecf

Yea it's a good price, I just worry about the quality of the QI component on it.

I just ordered the one above. I am hoping to pull the charging & NFC out and put it in my original a black back. Do you think that is an OEM back?

Yikes - $140?!? That's quite a premium.

Wow, they jacked the price up. I guess they saw an opportunity with all the G3's shipping now. I paid $40 for mine but I had a $38 eBay bucks credit so I am out of pocket $2. I don't think I could have even paid the $40 actually. Now I just have to not screw this up when I pull the coil.

then it's not really "price-gouging," is it?

Not to be that guy, but price gouging doesn't really apply to ellastic luxury goods like wireless charging devices for mobile phones
