Battery Full Panasonic QE-TM101

Unless I've missed it from my research but I haven't seen any mention of this Wireless Qi charger from Panasonic. Seems pretty good as it also goes and detects the device, so no need to move the phone or the tablet around to ensure it is charging. One fairly common complaint I notice is that they have to move the device around to ensure the charger finds the phone\tablet.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this as I may be picking it up for my Sexy Nexie 4 and 7. Or at the very least, here's another option for everyone to look into for their devices.

Here's a video review of some drunk guy on YouTube.

I have had mine for a couple of weeks. Love it. My tablet pretty much stays charged all the time.

I have one I bought for my Nexus 4 as soon as my N4 arrived in January. Works fine with the Nexus 7 - although never seems to switch off from charging. When I leave it charging over night the charge light almost always on in the morning but the Nexus 7 only feels barely warm. So probably it is just trickle charging.

From your experience approximately how long does it take to charge the Nexus 7? My other concern about wireless charging is how it affects the battery life overall. I'm assuming you guys only place it on the charger from empty to full all the time?

x2, I am afraid it would shorten the battery life.

Pretty much I am either holding my nexus or it is laying on the charger. From its lowest point, maybe 20%, it will charge to full in 4-5 hours. Then the light on the charging pad starts flashing.

I should add, the nexus is noticeably warm when I take it off the charging pass. This is not a trickle charge.

To clarify my earlier post:

Charging for N7 takes a long time - I guesstimate charging time is 5 or 6 hours. I normally charge it overnight. My N4 charges and switches off at around 95%. N7 charges to full charge.

The Panasonic charging coil seeks out the best position for charging the device. The N7 coil is physically in the centre of the back, so position placement really doesn't matter much.

flashing means something wrong

I have one, works perfectly well with the Nexus 7. The charging coil in the station is motorized, so it'll sound like a quiet inkjet printer when it positions the coil, but it's not loud at all and doesn't bother me. Works especially well if it's on your nightstand... especially when it's time to go to bed and you're too tired to bother with a cable or another Qi charger in the dark. As long as you don't place the tablet like halfway off the station, it should work.

As far as cutting off charge, some people have said that it charges to 100% then won't initiate charging again until the device drops to 90%. Haven't really had a chance to test it, but every time I've picked up my tablet after a night of charging, my Nexus is at 100%.

totally not trying to thread-crap.... just figured I should mention that AT&T is selling the Nokia DT900 at half price.. $25 for wireless charging is great way to give it a try. It's working perfectly with my N7 and N4... I just ordered a 2nd.
