DO NOT SUBMERGE THE DEVICE WITH THIS PAD INSTALLED.
I'VE TESTED IT AND THE RESULTS ARE HERE: [VIDEO] Samsung Galaxy S5 Dead - Water Damage
For the Note 3, I purchased about 3 different receiver pads over the course of it's life. Every pad pretty much had it's own set of pros and cons. For the S5, this is the product I started with. If I purchase any other ones, I'll add to this.
Cost: Around $7-$8 shipped

Kind of hard these days to film with my daughter around, but it's better than going to work and coming home and hiding in the basement. I do apologize about that.
Overall assessment for you guys is that it does an okay job with charging. Exactly what you'd expect with wireless charging if you're familiar with it. NFC gets a one out of four stars though. Don't expect to enjoy using NFC while using it. If you do get it to work, it's because you really fiddled around a lot with it.
