    Does anyone know if I can use a wireless charging card in my s5 and will or can they damage my phone?

    Are you talking about the charging receiver that goes between the battery and the back cover that you can buy on Amazon or Ebay?

    My co-worker bought one off of Amazon for his S3 and he likes it. He's had it a few months now. He says it does get warm when it's charging but that might be normal for wireless charging, I don't know.

    I've been looking at them for my S5 but quite frankly I'm scared to use something not manufactured by Samsung for fear of damaging my phone. I wish Samsung would hurry up with those charging back plates before I break that annoying little USB cover off.

    It should work, it worked on my note 3. Although the Wireless charging back worked better

    The N5 gets pretty toasty when charging wirelessly.

    That's what I was thinking. At least with the wireless receivers off Amazon the case I bought will probably still fit. I have insurance on my phone but I like to use a thin case anyway to keep the corners from getting banged up and stuff.

    Now I'm wondering if the gasket for water-resistance under the backplate will seal tightly if I use the receiver.

    You can use a standard microusb 2.0 cable.
