    At $70 it's a bit pricey, and there are definitely cheaper options out there, but this works really well with my N4 (with a case).

    Would this work work any device that had NFC? I have a galaxy S5, I really like that charger you posted.

    Wireless charging uses QI not NFC (not that they couldn't use NFC to do something else). That charger will work with any phone that is QI compatible. Both your S4 and S5 will need the battery cover with QI or a QI card installed under the stock battery door.

    I have this charger and the s5 with Samsung WIreless Back. It does not charge properly with phone in portrait mode but charges fine in landscape position. It will flash orange when charging in portrait. I had 1 occasion where doubletwist was syncing 14 gig of music while on TYLT and it triggered battery to hot message. Had to shutdown phone to get rid of message.

    I've never had a problem with overheating or improper charging....but that might just be the difference of having it built in vs. an add-on

    Syncing will heat the processor up and battery. Add charging on top of that and I can understand the issue.

    I have that some charger and it is awesome. No worries about placement no matter which way you put the phone. Went through 3 $30-40 ones and had to return them all.

    I have a CHOETECH with wireless card and it works great. It does heat up charging but that seems to be the norm and once it hits 100% it stops charging and the temperature drops. It works through my spigen ultra thin case and charges faster than I thought it would.

    I'm on the fence as to whether to get one these.

    How safe are the ones where insert the receiver behind the standard back cover?

    I just ordered the offical black Sammy charging back and this charger today.

    I haven't had the benefit of wireless charging since the Palm Pre+ and touchstone. I've missed wireless charging.

    I have one of these and it charged my S5 from 17% to 73% in 8 hours.
    Not real good in my opinion.

    I have the white version of that one. It works fine. With the official Samsung charging back the phone itself gets a little warm, but not nearly as bad as some people complain about with other chargers/after market charging coils.

    The phone does stick out around the pad, so it takes a concerted placement of the phone to make sure it starts charging. If it is miss-placed, the pad may light up to show a device is charging, but the phone won't take a charge.

    I have three of these:

    A6 Qi Wireless Charger Charging Pad Transmitter for Apple Samsung Google HTC LG | eBay

    They are not from the same factory that makes the Tylt, but they also have 3 coils, work very well and are half the price.of a Tylt. The only thing is that you have to be willing to wait 10 days for them to get to you (in the US) from Hong Kong. My wife and I really like these.
