    Apologies if this has been discussed already, but is there a consensus on which wireless charger seems to work best with Droid Maxx? There's seems to be a lot of them out there.

    Thanks

    I'm a little shocked at the cost of some of these things.... $90 on Amazon? Ouch.

    It's $70 from Tylt direct or from REI. I haven't bought one yet, but I like the Vu because it is also a stand. The other one I am interested in is the Lugu Lake, since it is also portable

    Got my Tylt Vu from T-Mobile on a sale they had. Check and see if that's still on. You don't need to be a T-Mobile customer.

    The one I have is kinda hard to find anymore. I got it on eBay awhile back. It's by Energizer (model IC2B) and has space for 2 devices plus a port to charge one by wire. It was around $60 on eBay, I picked it up to charge my Maxx & N7. The N7 works great, but the Maxx seems to have trouble getting aligned. But it is nice to charge both at the same time if I need to.

    Otherwise I looked at those ones from Nokia that you can get cheap thru AT&T (or you could a few months ago), and the Ghost one. I agree, some of these chargers seem very overpriced though.

    I got mine from Verizon for $70, used my Isis to get it down to $60 and the manager knocked another $10 because my corp discount wouldn't work on it.

    How do these work in comparison to plug in chargers? Do they take longer to charge? Do you always get a complete charge? Does it take more power to get the same charge on the phone?

    The tylt vu charges as fast as plugging it in. I get the same charge as a plug, shows 100% and takes the same amount of time to discharge.

    How do these wireless chargers work through cases (realizing that cases vary and some may allow wireless charging to work better than others).

    I am interested in this also.... I have an otterbox and want to make sure it can work through the case.

    I've used mine with my case, the high gloss silicon one Verizon sells. The only issue I've seen is the phone can get hot, but that seems to be the case with any qi chargers. There's no solid evidence that says it hurts the device, but heating the battery can reduce the number of charging cycles the battery can do.

    P.S. the part about the phone getting hot has nothing to do with the case, it's just part of inductive charging.

    I also have two Tylt Vu wireless chargers and I love them. They work just fine if your phone is in a case. I bought the first one for $70 from Tylt.com. The second one I bought in the Cyber Monday sale from Tylt.com for half price...$35. Just keep checking. They are bound to have them on sale again.

    I picked this up CHOE UPGRADED Qi Wireless Charger Charging Pad for Nexus 5, Nexus 7(2013) , Ne... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C40OG22/...cUvbUpU3445194 it's OK at best, issues with getting the phone to line up correctly. Ordered the tylt Vu today at Verizon ($10 off paying with isis, plus I connected my isis with Alex serve card and get 20% back on all purchases till the end of the month so in all it will cost me $50. Excited to see if it works better.

    Me too. Thinking about using Isis to get $10 rebate and buying it.

    But I think I'd want something that my Nexus 7 2013 could use too.

    The Tylt looks to be a pretty solid charger so I might end up going with that one.

    T-Mobile has a 25% discount on accessories, which takes the TYLT VU down to about $52. To me, the convenience of the design is worth a $10 premium over a flat charger.

    Throw my vote in for the Tylt.. Think I paid $90 and would buy again.

    I may get the ghost 100. its on ebay for $19.95 free shipping. Otherwise I will stick to my Fonus and Verizon 2.1A led micro usb home chargers. They seem to be doing well on my micro usb ports. I really don't want to have my device heat up accidentally. And now that my bootloader is unlocked I will want to keep this phone for as long as possible...
