The realest thing im worrying about with this orb is how I'm going to remove the dust from it cause it already has a few specks from 1 day and i couldn't get them off cause of the rubber on it . . and even in the lil manual it says if there's too much dust it's possible for the phone to slide off but it doesn't say how you take the dust off ! !

Re: Wireless charging Orb
Those that used the orb can you guys check better battery stats after allowing it be on standby for awhile? Mine after 5 hrs standby, 11 min screen on, have 0 min of deep sleep, phone awake for 5 hrs, with a kernel wakelock power manager service.wirelesschargerdetector for 5 hrs. So my phone was awake the whole time even though it was off the orb and screen off.

Any of you have the same thing?

I would think a microfiber cloth should do the trick but I can't say for sure. I just ordered mine yesterday.

I don't have an orb yet but I've been using the lg wireless charger for months now. I just saw this same bug, over 12 hours of wirelesschargerdetector wakelock after taking my phone off the charger last night and having it on standby overnight.

I had never seen this until I updated to 4.2.2 so yay... New wakelock bug? These are starting to get ridiculous.

OK so it's not just me. I was noticing the battery draining faster than normal with no use, then imagine my surprise when I see the phone not deep sleeping at all!

you thought this orb would just generate power out of thin air?

No but it wasn't charging when I checked it earlier (only at 50% from 26%) so I adjusted it and went back to sleep. A few hours later it was fully charged and not burning or even hot.

Re: Wireless charging Orb
Anybody ever figure out what app they use for the picture of the phone on the orb in the play store?
