I have 2 Touchpads, and 2 Touchstone Touch Pad Chargers
I also have a Pre Touchstone (Like the hockey puck style)

I put a pre touch charger on my Galaxy S3's backplate.
This: http://www.fasttech.com/products/1154/10001946/1149700

S3 + Pre Touchstone = Charging
S3 + Touchpad Touchstone = Nothing happens on either one. (Even by moving all around)

What am I doing wrong?

That site says the backplate is a Qi backplate. The TouchStone isnt a Qi charger. And it wouldnt work with the Touchpad's charger. I've never seen that before. Hopefully you didnt get scammed.

EDIT: After reading more, the site says that it is made for it and not Qi compatible.

"This wireless charger is not Qi-compatible:
The included back plate is custom designed to work with the Galaxy S3 on the Palm Touchstone charger.
It is compatible with Palm chargers (included) and is not compatible with Qi chargers."

I dont really know anything about that product. Sorry. Maybe they sent you a Qi backplate by mistake.

No the touchstones are original factory.
The backplate uses the touchstone standard (and it works on the touchstone)

What doesnt work is the touchpad touchstone. at all.

Oh. So the Pre Touchstone works. I missed that part. The Touchpad touchstone wont work. I believe the charging connection in that Touchstone is on the very bottom lip. Not the back that stands the Tablet up. So to charge on that, the connection on your phone would have to be on the sides of your device.

Hey

I'm a little confused, but recently got a Touchstone for my touchpad,
Was wondering if there was a way to get my Galaxy Note 2 charged by it ?

If I understood it right from this topic, no hope ?

Thanks

Hi Guys,

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but just wondering... does the Palm Pre Touchstone (hockey puc style/shape) work with the HP Touchpads...? Or is it different technology??

My HP Touchpad is dead, and I dont want to buy the official Touchstone if its not gonna make a blind bit of difference, where as the Palm Pre (puc style) is like half the price...

I wasn't even aware the Touchpads were wireless charging capable...?? What type of technology is the Touchpad wireless charger?? I have a wireless charging pad from another phone here, and wondered if that would work?? I will look out the model of my wireless charger later to see if its compatible....


Cheers, Lister

If you want to wireless charge the TouchPad, you need the official wireless charger. It works well. It's the only reason I still use the touchpad... no idea why other companies don't make something just like it.

There is no alternative for the Touchstone, just the barrel charger. Get one rated for at least 2.1 amps. .

Ignore it. I've been charging my Touchpads with generic chargers for years. Just make sure it is output rated for 2 amps (2000 ma) or greater @ 5 volts
