I just picked up a wireless charging pad from my VZW store.

I love it!

I can now just set my phone on the nightstand next to the bed and not have to worry about plugging it in.

Thank you HTC for finally making this built in, and not an option!

I really like this idea. I've currently got a dock for my Rezound, and while it is more convenient than a loose cable most of the time, its still fan be a bit of a pain sometimes.

Did you get the LG one? If so, supposedly the thing beeps super loudly every time the charger turns on according to the Amazon.com reviews.

You are supposed to be able to take it apart and remove the speaker from the board.

I just ordered 2 for $35 ea from there... hoping for the best.

I did, but I don't mind the beep. It doesn't seem that loud to me.

Great. I'm curious if the beep happens every time the charger kicks on (I believe it shuts off automatically when the phone is fully charged) or if it's just one "beep" when the phone is set down on it.

Either way, I'll probably be disconnecting the speaker since I will use one bedside (don't want to wake the sig other) and one at work and don't want to bother my coworkers either.

When you set it down. The beep is to tell you it's placed correctly on the mat.

Right on.. I'll be able to tell that by the lightning symbol in the battery icon too.

Looks like a good choice, although more $ and out of stock apparently (for now).
