    Why do the wireless chargers cost so much?

    The IC's that power them are new, and the circuits still fairly complex with substantial BOMs

    I just ordered one so that my N4 and my wife's can spend the night together on the pad while we spend the night together in bed. Sort of romantic, don't you think?

    Ordered last Thursday; received yesterday (Monday). Clearly brand-new, factory-fresh packaging and item. Works like a charm.

    Saw this one posted on XDA. Its only $25. Not the best looking charger but gets the job done.

    Not a Qi charger, but certainly the next best thing I've seen so far - nice design.

    Any beeping, buzzing or other noises?

    What case are you using?

    So I got the LG WCP700 from Verizon today, $50 plus tax. It works pretty good, and the beeping is as advertised.

    What do you mean by that? Annoying as heck or beeps once/twice only?

    If it is the same as everything else with this launch, it will just show up unannounced at any moment.

    The only other factor that might be in play is the battle Google is having with the Qi Wireless Power Consortium vs the Power Matters Alliance (now backed by Starbucks). Messy! This looks like beta vs VHS all over again!

    Beeps only once when it starts charging. Very loud.

    My LG Verizon Wireless Charger WCP-700 works great. Only beeps once when my N4 is placed on the pad to confirm that it is charging. It would charge all the way to 100%.

    The beep is not that loud on mine. I place the charger on the night stand and my N4 also doubles as my alarm. My old phone would beeps after it was fully charged. This N4 does not. I really do not see the issue with the beeps. All my phones/tablets beep when receiving messages or email anyway.

    I rather like the confirmation beep when I place the phone on the pad, as I do not have to pay too much attention on the placement of the phone. When I hear the beep, I know it is placed correctly for charging.

    I would not, NOT, try this ... get a converter or other device designed to convert 12VDC to 120VAC for the charger device. Or get something designed for 12VDC.

    Yeah, some of you may be EEs, but I'm worried about the numbskull who thinks he can do this, wires wrong, and burns something up.

    Catch up .. more like HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray Disc. ... I'm beginning to wonder if the orb will show at all. All we've seen is Matias showing off a mock-up, right? We are in the final days of the holiday shopping season. And nothing's come to light? It's a figment of Google's imagination. "Blame Cana--, no wait, Blame LG!"

    It's been tested with the nexus 4 by someone over in the xda forums. It works. I'm sure you could find the thread with a search.

    For the people that bought WCP-700 chargers, did you get them recently? Were they available in-store? It seems like the world's supply of these things has dried up.

    Mine already shipped unlike my Nexus 4. Oh and a tracking number too.

    I got my LG Verizon Wireless Charger WCP-700 last week on eBay. The seller indicated more than 10 was available. I just checked again and there is no more for sale. I guess once people found out this charger works, it sold out fast.

    Just found this. There are still 4 available. Get it before it is gone.
