Default Wireless Qi Charging base

So I have been doing a lot of looking and this is my first phone with Wireless/Qi charging. Here is what I found so far. What is everyones experience, favorites, and ones to avoid? Two of the main issues Ive seen are, how finicky is the charger on where you place the phone. And does it trickle charge. If it "turns off" at 100%, your phone will start to discharge and youll wake up at 90%.

LG-WCP-300 - seems a little small. Would love a slab type that I can just plop my phone down and hot worry it'll tip over because I put it too far to one side. It charges at 1.8 which is nice (I think per androidcentral, the power cord is 1.8, but the base drops it down to 1A, oh well)

Nokia DT-90 - some say you have to get it in that "sweet" spot, which is annoying when you are wanting to just put it down and go to sleep.

Panasonic Qi Charging Pad QE-TM101-K - doesnt trickle charge. So when it gets to 100...it turns off, then when your phone gets to ~95% it turns back on and then on and then off...and so on...no good. Although the size and ability to put it ANYWHERE and know itll start charging it perfect.

ZENS Wireless - "turns off after fully charged." so after it gets to 100%...itll turn off and Ill wake up with it at 90%??

LuguLake 6000mAh - looks cool, not that the portability is needed. Seems to be easily placed and starts charging.

TYLT http://tylt.com/vu/
Energizer - its very slick and a little angled so some phones (probably not the G2?) tend to slide down it and you wake up with your phone on the floor http://www.energizer.com/portable-po...e-charger.aspx

I got the Nokia for my G2 based on all the reviews. No sweet spot needed so far. I just basically place the phone on the plate and it charges.

I like the devices offered by TYLT - not only the QI charger due to its ability to serve as a table stand while charging the phone, but also the power plant and the USB connector cables are interesting. The design is nice, too. Has anyone recognized this brand and used their products?

Really like the Tylt Vu....been eyeing it forawhile, and may scoop one up.

I'm also interested in this: http://www.nokia.com/global/products/accessory/cr-200/ A little pricey but A LOT of functionality.

do you all charge your devices every night? all the old talk about not charging your device all the time so you don't "wear" out your battery. Is it actually better to have a charger that turns off and on? I liked the tylt charger too, thinking that or the nokia.

FYI - AT&T online has the Nokia charging plate for $24.50 (half off!) Free shipping but you need to pay tax (still a lot cheaper than elsewhere)

Anyone get the Nokia DT-900? Was looking at that one but I know the output is supposed to be pretty low.
