I've been digging around for this all morning and I can't find it for sale anywhere. I'm guessing its not for sale at this time but will hopefully be shortly. I've emailed different with companies about a qi certified car mount and 2 out of 3 said they are researching them at this time and because more phones are slated to get this wireless qi technology that we will see them come out this following year but neither gave me a eta.

Those are prototypes, probably not available for sale until some other company licenses them. The Energizer single pad seems to be a rebrand of their single model. Probably the dual one is also based on their prototype.

Im going to be ordering one in the next week and if it works ill update the thread and try to do a video review on it. All signs point to it working.

Also, their solution is basically their pad built onto an Arkon mount. So purchasing from them is getting about the same thing that Arkon will be producing later.

Wait for my update before making an impulse buy. I'd hate for anyone else to get an impulse purchase and then it not even work.

I'll be the lab rat for the community.
Beat you to the punch. I have also been in touch with Moon as I am going to be their US distributor. I have a batch of test units on their way right now. As soon as they arrive I will update this thread as to whether or not it works with the Nexus 4. I will also be testing it with some other Qi devices as well. Assuming all goes to plan I will start listing the car and desktop pads on my ebay store within a couple of weeks so you can buy them from a US seller. I will also be more than willing to allow local pickup for anyone in the Salt Lake area.

When you say you have a "batch" of units on the way..... does that mean you'll have a few extra that you would distribute for multiple people to test?

Say, for example, people who live in Texas could test in a hotter climate?

Or maybe, someone in Idaho could test on a colder climate?

Ha ha. Very funny you guys.
Don't worry, If all goes well I should have them up for sale before Christmas. I'm thinking I'll start out with just the car docks since there are already plenty of Qi desktop pads in the wild.
The one huge advantage these have in a desktop setting however is that they use an adaptive charging controller. They will actually switch automatically between charging standards so you can charge a Qi enabled phone or a Powermat enabled phone. They said they might even function with old Touchstone receivers so I'll give that one a go too since I've Touchstone modded my last three phones.
