Re: Wireless Car Dock
I went ahead and bought the iOttie Easy Flex Wireless Car Dock. For the receiver I got the "Fone Salesman S5 SlimPWRcard.
Firstly, the receiver. It's the .5mm one, so it is pretty slim. I still notice a slight bump in the middle of the battery cover, but it's not noticeable unless you are looking for it, so that's good. I lined it up with the two prongs and stuck it to my battery.
I pulled out the car dock and plugged it in. Put my phone on the dock and it started charging! Very exciting! Anyway. I installed the car dock in my car, sticky suction cup was very sticky. I am not at all worried that this will come loose. That's good. I haven't driven around with it, but it seems pretty sturdy. The biggest negative is that my car doesn't have a great place for the thing. Also, if you use fingerprint scanner, it may suck. There is a 1" wide prong that the phone sits on, and it pretty much is the same width of the home button which makes it very difficult to use the scanner to unlock your phone. I may ditch the scanner, or see if the phone has an option to not power off the screen automatically when charging. You also need two hands to remove the phone from the dock, but I'm not worried about that, because that's also how my GS3 needed to be removed from its dock. I will report back with any other findings. If you guys have any questions about this dock, just let me know and I will try to answer them!
