Default Wireless Charging pads..

For those who do not know..

Tanga has the official Samsung wireless charging back cover for $10 plus shipping (I got it for 14.98 shipped.).

https://www.tanga.com/deals/1d41e0d5...ampaign=search



Now I'm in the market for a charging pad.

I see lots of threads discussing the receivers, but all I'm seeing is complaints about the LEDs and the speaker.

Are the eBay charging pads junk? Should I op to get the more expensive one? I don't mind hacking one open and cutting the speaker out as well as covering up the LED.

Thanks

you have to watch on ebay some of the charging pads are actually magnetic like powermat and not qi, the recievers are the same way... I bought a receiver off ebay that fits under my factory battery door and works great with the nokia charging pad even through otterbox defender. Do your research other than just ebay and you should be fine if you want to go that route.

Thank you. I purchased the OEM charging cover already. I'll keep an eye out on the pads to make sire its Qi Compatible!
