*WARNING*

DO NOT SUBMERGE YOUR SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 WITH THIS WIRELESS RECEIVER PAD INSTALLED. I HAVE TESTED IT AND IT DOES LEAK.

IF YOU DO, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED ABOUT THE POSSIBLE OUTCOME

Water death thread --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2741481

-----------------------

For the Note 3, I purchased about 3 different receiver pads over the course of it's life. Every pad pretty much had it's own set of pros and cons. For the S5, this is the product I started with. If I purchase any other ones, I'll add to this.

Cost: Around $7-$8 shipped

Kind of hard these days to film with my daughter around, but it's better than going to work and coming home and hiding in the basement. I do apologize about that.

Overall assessment for you guys is that it does an okay job with charging. Exactly what you'd expect with wireless charging if you're familiar with it. NFC gets a one out of four stars though. Don't expect to enjoy using NFC while using it. If you do get it to work, it's because you really fiddled around a lot with it.

Finally a review, thanks. 1A charging is more than decent i'd say. my old HTC wall adapter chargers are 1A anyway.

Obviously everyone should assume water resistance is void with 3rd party qi receivers. I personally don't use NFC for any reason so there is no downside for me. but yea, i think that's about it, i just wanted to see it actually working and i appreciate it. very straight fwd. cheers.

Welcome.... I agree. I should add a blurb about the IP67 cert and the effects of the QI receiver.

I treat my phone normally, haven't had a phone with ip certification until this S5, and never had a phone that went swimming from my very first phone, so I don't care about the ip67.

What would happen if you had the phone plugged in charging and you set it on the wireless charger?

That's a good question actually because if you have the phone hooked up to do data transfer and placed it on the wireless base then you would have the same scenario. There must be some intelligence in the phone to either cope with a charge from two locations or to disable one if two are present.

I'll try this sometime this weekend.

I would use NFC if more people took ISIS payments. Most of the time they don't. If they have an NFC compatible POS it's either shut off or not allowed.

I think it has to average out to 640mA. From what I've read the kernel doesn't allow for higher current. Then again according to this app it was charging about 1% a minute which was the same as the charger...

How is water resistance comprimised with the Qi receiver? Does the receiver stay inside the sealing of existing cover?

Well I think in my blurb I noted that it is not recommended to submerge the phone afterwards. I would imagine that officially any company that says it doesn't effect it would have to get the whole system re certified.

It is within the boundaries of the seal. Who's going to be brave enough to submerge for 5 minutes and see if any water seeps in? Don't volunteer me please. I might do a 2 second plunge and keep on going from there... 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 60 seconds and 2 min.
