Samsung has a promo code for 50% off certain accessories. Their QI compatible wireless charger is one of them!

https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/ce...EP-P100IJWUSTA

You must sign up for a samsung account on their website and use the Promo Code: rv18623

The price went from 49.99 to 24.99 !!!

I don't know how long this will last but might as well take advantage before it's gone!!!

****COUPON CAN ONLY BE USED ONCE PER ACCOUNT SO PURCHASE WISELY

Good luck everyone!

Just a heads up for those that don't read the description, This is just the pad, you have to use a USB charger to power it, and it's designed for a 2 A charger. The stock nexus one may not work.

Requires 2Amp charger to function, sold separately.

I see that the N72 charger is only 1.35a. I thought that the N71 charger was 2a, but I could be mistaken and am too lazy to run upstairs and check.

Either way, I'm sure I have some 2a USB charger lying around the house somewhere, or could get one for a few bucks on Amazon. I'm not sure if that's just a suggestion or is actually required. I think it comes down to how much energy your device can draw. I imagine that, unlike a directly plugged in device, using wireless chargers will result in a slower charge cycle as a larger amount of the energy is lost, so it probably needs to be greater than what it normally uses. I know that, in general, you can use a higher mA output than what is required, as the device will only draw what it can/needs, but not sure about how wireless works in this regard.

Shoot! I missed that! If anyone finds the needed charger on Amazon please share.

I've followed a few reviews on this one since I have the S4 and was considering picking up the whole kit. The ones that mentioned trying another charger stated it didn't work. Wireless charging does work a bit differently since you lose some energy transferring the power to the induction coil.

I don't have time to source the reviews right now, but that might point you in the right direction.

Any 2000ma/2A charger should work.
