Question Question regarding Galaxy S3

Hi I am planning on purchasing the Palm TouchStone wireless charging kit for my S3 i747m from eBay

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/281051460427?...84.m1439.l2649


Does anyone who have the mod or an eBay kit tell me if the magnet attachment is on the TouchStone charger or is it on the Phone battery cover or both?


Also, how fast does it charge with the TouchStone?


Does it overheat after charging for a long time?


Does the TouchStone charger "turn off" or switch to "tinkle charging" after the phone is fully charged?






Any answers to my question would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I would look for a touchstone forum or review site for answers, not here, bro. There is an accessories thread you could possibly get an answer in.

I see, I will take a gamble and buy it... rated at ~500mAh with coil and charger directly aligned.

With my Otterbox Commuter case, I think the charging should not be affected too much (my guess is around 480mAh-490mAh)

This is because the Touchstone, like the Qi, is using EMR for coil and charger transmission/receiving. The only different is that Qi and Touchstone operate at different frequencies and the coil designs might be slightly different to have either slightly better range or better efficiency.

From my experience with Wacom tablets (Intuos, Bamboo) and Wacom integrated tablets (Galaxy Note 10.1, Note 1/2, Tablet PCs, Cintiqs etc)
The pen can hover even with an overlay sheet or a pane of glass over it.. The hovering range is around 5-7mm depending on how thick the surface cover is.

Hopefully the charger has a built in tinkle charging mode and a auto shut off mode (the phone power management should have this)

Also hopefully it does not overheat the phone when it is charging through my Otterbox Commuter case.
