    Default Will Google Nexus charger work with S4?

    Thinking of getting this for my 2013 Nexus 7:

    Will it work with my S4 (Sprint)?

    I would say yes. I charge my N7 with my Samsung GNex charger all the time. All the non apple devices use the same micro USB connectors. I use generic cables and wall chargers all the time between as all my devices with no problem.

    I think the OP is referring to wireless charging.

    Is the s4 completely stock? I know there is some sort of aftermarket wireless charging option for the s4 but I don't think it has qi charging built in.

    Yes ... stock. I thought that the S4 had wireless charging built-in ...

    I have three Qi chargers, one that I got from Verizon, a Nokia, and a generic one that I got last week on dailysteals. All work fine with my nexus 7 2013 and my s4. As long as it all uses the Qi standard, you can mix and match as well.

    For various reasons, I would recommend the Nokia above all others.

    The s4 does have inductive charging built in, but you have to put the inductive battery cover on it.

    The cover is $19, with the Samsung coupon.

    Phones with removable batteries usually require a different battery door for Qi charging.

    Not to my knowledge. shopandroid I believe sells the proper accessory but you could probably find it cheaper from somewhere else.

    I found this budget charging pad and card for the phone recommended on a different forum:

    Going to give it a try...
