    I'm also interested in the time difference. I get a full day out of my phone anyway and charge overnight.
    Is wireless much slower?

    I don't use the actual Samsung charger but I do use the Choe (updated version) I got from amazon. There is about an hour difference. Some might say it takes longer and some might say it takes less but in my experience, it's about an hour.

    I charge my phone overnight also so the extra hour is a no-brainer for convenience of just plopping the thing down.

    So far i am using my nexus wireless charger that came out with the nexus 5 or soon after ( not the circle one that came out) and does it overnight. I bought the tylt Vu charger and hopefully just as fast. I just found it so annoying i always have to find the right spot on the nexus wireless charger

    Probably somewhere around 4-5 hours for 0-full

    Huh? No. About 3 hours from 0 to full. Mine charges just as quick plugged in from 0 to 90 as it does wirelessly. It just takes longer from 90 to 100.

    Interesting, I just assumed that the Samsung pad took as long to charge as the LG or nokia pads that I have.

    I'm using the Samsung charging back and the Choe charging pad. I can't comment on the Samsung charging pad. I should have explained that a little better.

    I am using the Samsung back as well. The choetech back ran hotter and didn't charge as fast as as my lg and Nokia pads.

    Could someone fill me in please? I never looked into this.

    Is the wireless back pre-charged so it's an extra power pack. Or is it like I think - another way to charge the battery without a direct connection to an outlet?

    The battery charges SUPER fast on AC ( < 90 mins), and even with a 1.0A car charger it's fast.
    What is the range away from the base unit thingy.
    In other words - what is the point of carrying a larger heavier pack around?
    I can put the small 1A ac charger from my GS2 in my coat pocket.

    Is it not just a novelty item?

    You might have had a defective unit. Mine doesn't get hot and it charges pretty fast. Although I have nothing to compare it too except my wife's and hers is the same setup as mine.

    I tried it with the choetech back and about same charging rate. I do have a very thick case (Trident Kraken ams), so that could have an impact

    It is another way to charge without having to plug a wire into the phone. This is for those who don't want to run a wire from the charger to the phone, really no other advantage

    Not even close to being novelty and it's not a battery pack.

    You can either get a Samsung wireless charging back (black or white on Amazon) or use a charging coil that fits under existing battery cover. The Samsung back IS thicker and the coils make the back bulge a little... So it's a trade off. Then you can buy ANY qi charging pad you wish.

    Once you do this, all you have to do is set it down and walk away...or go to sleep....your choice Check em out below!

    Ok that makes sense. See, if I use my charging coil and place my phone in it's Seidio Dilex case, it gets HOT. 112 degrees + and takes longer to charge. But if I use the Samsung cover with no case, its perfect.

    At work when I don't use it I can put it on the pad. Especially on days when I walk away from my desk a lot. At night, I use this charger because sometimes I will knock my phone on the ground in the middle of the night or grab the phone forgetting that the cord is in

    It's acts like a 1.0A charger from what I can see. I learned from @clevin and @rusty502 that it's good for the battery to top up from around 50%, as it stays cooler and counts as half a cycle, so mid top ups are fine. 30%-80% range regularly is healthy.
    I mostly drive at the mo so would consider one when I'm in a second room or an office a lot.
    Good to know.
    When you put your night ravaged phone up for sale it won't be me putting a bid in. LOL.

    It is in a Trident Kraken ams case and covered by a meme tempered glass screen protector. Looks brand new, once you remove the screen protector and case.

    No worries though I never sell my phones.

    Yeah I give my phones to family members on prepaid, since most Verizon 4GLTE smartphones are factory sim unlocked anyway.

    Using the Samsung wireless charging back and the TYLT charging base it takes noticeably longer than using a cable and a 2.1 amp output charger. In addition, with the Samsung wireless charging back installed (not the charging cover back) I lose the NFC and SBeam functions. Seems like the thicker charging back blocks the NFC radio signal.
