Default Wireless Charging Thread.

Wireless Charging thread.

Note 3 supports Wireless charging as did the Note 2.

Wireless charging is a MUST for me as I have many devices and im getting sick of plugging in wires.

Looks like Samsung is introducing the extremely expensive "official" wireless charging setup,

But we will also have options such as QI in which you can buy just the reciever and stick it under any cover you like.

Lets see what options we have here and compare.

They removed the charging pins and covered it up with plastic (u'd have to drill holes then use copper wiring if u wanted it)

That is rather stupid of them, its an accessory they can sell but of course it's Verizon and they are always NOT looking out for the customer.

okay, so what all is this going to entail for me? I'm not really familiar with wireless charging on samsung devices, as far as I know it's 'pseudo-supported' but not out of the box, is that right? I'm coming from a nexus 4 and I have a few Qi chargers around the house that I'd really like to work with my Note 3...what do I have to do to accomplish that task?

On the Nexus 4/Droid Maxx its built in while on the Note 2/S4 that leave the pins so you can buy the Qi receiver (Samsung has their own back), there is the slim possibility that Samsung has it built in but unlikely.

I asked Verizon in chat and they gave me a pretty straight forward answer

"You: will Verizon block the Wireless charging capabilities of the Note 3 as they did with the note 2. (ability to add the wireless charging back to it)

Lonnie: No, they wont.

You: so the note 3 will have wireless charging with the added accessory?

Lonnie: Yes."

take it for what it is worth, but it sounds like good news to me.

They left it open and normal on the S4. Verizon has been super big on wireless charging. I can't see them going away from it here. But to never know.

Take it with a grain of salt. As these employees know nothing about the device. I find it humorous that they provide answers the questions that don't know.
