This is specific to our AT&T model, though i'm sure they are universal across all S5 models. Filter on the left side for the chargers.

Wireless Charging Pad mini $39.99

Wireless Charging Pad $59.99

Galaxy S 5 Spare Battery Charging System $49.99

Galaxy S 5 Wireless Charging Cover, White $29.99 (Also available in Black it says)

Most important thing of course we ALL want to know with these Qi-charging covers are: "The Wireless Battery Cover was designed by Samsung to seamlessly match the look and feel of your Galaxy S 5 ensuring that your phone maintains its original style and slim profile. In addition, Samsung has incorporated sealing rubber into the battery cover to retain the Galaxy S 5ís water resistance."

Please sticky this at least for the first quarter as it is a list of the Official products.

Im hoping this little line in their description means that the wireless back wont add too much to the phone to prevent the use of normal cases.

We need to know if it adds bulk and if standard cases can be used. I have a QI charging pad that I use with an insert in my S3. I'm guessing my charging pad will work with this back?

These are on backorder , and because I am super impatient, I ordered an S5 compatible (supposedly) Qi receiver from China over eBay. I will let you all know how it works once I receive it.

Samsung should get its act together and release proper accessories at the right time, at least with its flagship devices. I had an S3 before I got the S5. I had to make do with questionable aftermarket accessories because of the lack of proper accessories from Samsung. I wish they just included the Qi cover by default. It should not add more than a few bucks to the overall cost.

I usually prefer the aftermarket qi receivers to keep it slim and to ensure case fit. But my concern with the s5 is that you may cause a bulge that would break the seal on the back door. Any thoughts on this? Not that I plan on swimming with my s5 I really want to maintain the level of protection it shipped with.

Wonder if they will have any price drops or a coupon code to score these cheaper. I might have to go w/the insert if the covers add bulk.
