    Default Re: Is the charging pod included?

    Wait 'n see. There are already third party Qi compatible charging platforms out there (Eveready Energizer? I can't remember). Someone will likely undercut Google with a similar tilted stand/charger thingie that operates the same,... or better. I don't think Google is going to have the corner on Qi chargers for the N4, or even the most economical.

    Christmas is coming. Santa surely has Qi chargers in his bag o' toys.

    Did I solve your problem? Hit the Thanks button. Was I just a nuisance? Sorry, can't bat .400 every day.

    The third thing is that we've already got 2 chargers by the bed, one at work, one in the car, a spare wire for downstairs plugged into the Xbox etc. So we're leaving the N4 charger (and headphones) wrapped in the box so that we'll get maximum price for it later, aren't we?

    You will be leaving the headphones for much later for sure...

    Oh wow! Just realised there's no headphones, oh well. No worries, I wasn't planning to use them!

    Science or you're wrong.

    Charger test here:

    With that being said, I buy Palm Pre chargers on Amazon for not much, and they're good quality.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    +1 It was too much to type, so I didn't reply earlier...but you put it the right way! If I am gonna be using a $350 phone, then I would prefer to use a branded charger. I have seen people fry their phones with cheap fleabay chargers.

    I started a thread today to try and keep track of what Qi chargers are available.

    Qi Chargers for the Nexus 4

    Hope it helps!
