Can anyone confirm a cheap wireless charging pad for the Verizon g2? I know its set up for wireless charging but I was wondering if there is a cheap dock or pad on eBay that someone can confirm is working.
Thanks

I got a Yes Digi Qi charger from Amazon (link). It works just fine with my G2. The first time I put it on it kept connecting/disconnecting the power rapidly, until I realized it has to sit up just a tad above being centered. I haven't had any problems since.

I haven't received my case yet (Incipio DualPro), so I don't know if it will work with it. I have, however, gotten it to charge through a stack of about 20 sheets of printer paper so I'm sure it'll be fine with a case.

Update: Just got my case yesterday. I can happily report that the charger works with the case. Yay!

Just received two of those ... they work great !
The LED is very good to tell you if the link is good. Easy to locate the good spot.
Charge pretty quick (VZW LG G2, Nexus 7 all with covers).

The Nokia DT-900 is currently half-off on att.com, if anyone's interested.

The Nokia's look like they are small and thick. I'd like to see some pics of the Nokia with a G2.

The Lerway looks similar to my Samsung model except it lacks the LED, which I can do without. I'd spend $20 on a Qi Charger. Can't see spending $50+ though.

DERP!

Just watched a Youtube video and realized the Nokia DT-900 Qi Charger uses a stupid barrel plug for power. FAIL. Instant fail. I travel and love being able to take 1 wall adapter, 1 MicroUSB cable, and my Qi Charging plate and it lets me Qi Charge, or charge my headphones, or tablet, controllers, etc.

Not interested in a Qi Charger that requires its own power supply. I'd rather do the LerWay or try to find another Samsung for $24 (what I paid for mine).

That's pretty cool! Let us know if the 2.1A output will achieve fast charge. I just got a power bank and even with the 2A output it slow charges.

I don't think you're getting a fast charge with Qi. I think the transfer rate is super slow which is a limitation of the current technology.

...not a charging pad
This is a receiver that is charged from a charging pad, not a charging pad itself. Not sure if that was clear....
