Sorry, I completely forgot about this. You have to cut down the plastic tabs on the inside of the front panel to make the coil fit flush when the case is closed. I used rugged cutters for the rough part and then ground it down with a dremel to make it neat.

Here are the pictures I've promised.
Did a few more things to it while I was at it.
Added bottom and side support, back legs and 50g of lead inside the case (at the bottom) for stability.
Oh and rerouted the power connector to the bottom side.

It's definitely not pretty to look at but very functional for my use.
Uses less space on the night stand and is clearly visible when lying in bed.
The thing that bugged me the most was finding the perfect spot so that the coils to lined up every time.
I just pop it in now and forget about it.

I ordered mine. Used the code and got it for $33 shipped. Works flawlessly and quickly(as if it were plugged in!)
I did not get the same exact model as the one listed. I ordered the large model, black in color.

Fit and finish is great. It works with my TPU case on which was a big surprise and relief. My only problem with it was that damn blue light! The thing is an amazing blue strobe light while charging and goes solid blue when charged. I still need to take a black marker or electrical tape to cover it. Really, a small LED would've been enough. But that's my only gripe. And for that price I'll probably order another.

Hmm I guess prices for the charger, from known brands, should be decreasing soon.
With Googles Orb at around 60 the less pretty ones should suffer a discount

Well hell! I'd rather send mine back and get one that works for another $10-15. I just have a clear screen protector on the back and the thing still doesn't work. Very disappointed.
