Charging Pad fail. PSA for everyone.
I ordered a charging pad to fit on the battery so that I could use the original back. This didn't work well. I had read that Sammy was putting chips in their accessories to make them work properly, don't know if this is related or not. Anyway, it fit perfectly, and I set it on my Nexus orb charger. Basically, it prevented it from working. The contacts were perfectly aligned, no space at all. I have bought these pads before for my s3, and my Verizon note 2 (yep, I even modded the side by taking it apart and cutting out over the contacts). It tries to work, but only works for 1 second, then disconnects, and reconnects, and disconnects and so forth. It also make the phone super hot. I get the message about wireless charging, and the s pen not working, although it does as I used it to take a screen shot of the message.
Anyway, I only spent 12 bucks on this from ebay, but again all the ones I have ordered from these guys have worked before. I am attaching a picture. Just an fyi for anyone wanting to save 12 bucks. Also, the cover barely fits back on, and on one side even popped open. So, I guess I am waiting on the s-view flip case with qi charging. Or, I hope it exists as the interwebs says it does.
