Okay, here's my experience.
Day 1 was like the posts where it works great. Super sticky, would pull the base when lifting the phone.
Day 2 still worked like a charm. No idea of any issues.
Day 3 charged phone, and then grabbed phone much later, and surprised I was 1/2 full. Didn't think much of it.
Day 4 morning, phone had stopped charging Reset device, and was charging. 30 min later it stopped.
After which, I saw this thread, and the sliding issue. I grabbed orb, and lo and behold. My phone was slipping. I did not have the awesome suction of the 1st day. If my phone slips to the 1/2 way point, it stops charging (before hitting desk). It now slips faster, and has less grip. Also slips when horizontal.
I may try a full battery drain, and full proper USB charge. See if it changes anything.
I was happy the first 2 days. :/
