Default [Q] QI charger how is it working with your Nexus 4?

Hello.

I am using QI charger - to charge QI charger I use 5V and 2,1 A charger.
The QI charger charges my Nexus 4 till 100% and than stops charging (light on QI charger is on - blinking when charging). My phone lies on the QI charger and gets down with juice (over night from 100% it went to 88%).

Anyone got any experience with QI charger and Nexus 4?
Shall it begin recharging after reaching certain point of %? I've heard that Nexus 5 begin recharging when juice drops to 95%.

I don't know if I shall service my Nexus 4 or the QI charger.
Please help.

So in your case QI charger charges till 100% and than discharges even if the phone stays on the QI charger?

I use a Zens qui charger. It will charge the phone up to 100% and then shut off. When the phone drops to 96%, it will again charge the phone back up to 100%.
So, depending on when I take my phone off the charger, it will be anywhere from 96 to 100%charged. What I usually do is pick my phone up off the charger in the AM when I get up and put it back down again. If it is not 100%, it will charge until it reaches that.

If your charger is charging up to 100% and then shutting off and not turning back on again. It is broken.

Final question - what ROM are you using?

I got MIUI 4.2.2 - build 3.11.29. But I tried stock 4.4.1 and QI and my Nexus 4 behaviour were the same.

I am using stock 4.4.2 Build KOT49H, but this has worked on all stock versions of Android since I got the phone.
