    Default The Samsung Galaxy S5 official wireless charging cover

    Here is the wireless charger for the S5! Are you getting one? Are you okay with the extra bulk it adds?

    I ordered one off of ebay along with the Tylt Vu charger. I have the otterbox commuter case, and after reading the review you posted, I'm starting to think it won't work with the tight fitting otterbox.

    I was expecting it to be a bit thicker, but that's ridiculous. Another lazy effort by Samsung.

    I'm not so sure the added bulk is worth it, although I do like how it protects the camera.

    I would not use the cover and a case, that's for sure. Cover or a case, maybe.

    That's what I'm worried about. I don't know if it will fit in my case. Beginning to think this was all a plot to make us part with more of our money...nah, they wouldn't do that

    I will go with the extra battery and external charger. My cases will still fit and I won't have to open the charger port all the time.

    I'll be getting one, the bulk doesn't bother me for the ease of wireless charging. I do wish that it wasn't an additional charge, and can't figure out how LG get's it in the LG G2 without and gizmos, girth, or cost yet Samsung doesn't include it. Well, I can figure it out, it's just annoying.

    The other thing I can't get is the number of people that whine about opening the USB cover but won't bat an eye at a second battery. I don't find taking the back off any easier than adjusting the battery cover. I'm probably holding it wrong though.

    Probably won't fit the commuter case. My note 3 didn't fit with the Wireless back and commuter case

    Sure they are - but the same charger is $59.99 on Amazon.

    Speaking of Tylt, looks like this would be an option if it still kept the phone water resistant:

    It looks like there's a bit of a bulge after putting that under the rear cover.

    What a bummer. I really wanted this but looks like my phone has to be naked since my Spigen neo hybrid won't fit.

    i think that will make it so it isnt water resistant. It goes onto the tract to where the seal goes

    I went with this QI charger off of eBay for $18.99

    It fits inside the OEM case, so does not compromise the water tightness.

    The same reason I didn't buy one for my Note 3, because I did for my S4 and it didn't fit the cases I used most after that.

    No, I don't have it offhand, but there is a YouTube video out there that shows it will leak if you use something like this. The cover needs to fit tight.

    I've very torn. Besides charging it in the car when I'm using the GPS or driving for a period of time I never plug it in until I go to bed so I'm not sure if I care to bother with the bigger back and figuring out another case since my Spigen ultra fit won't work. Then there's the worry that the charger door will break eventually -- but the wireless won't help me in the car anyway.

    QUESTION: Will the phone still be water and dust resistant with this cover?

    Yes, the Wireless charging back has the seal similar to the stock back

    Here is something that may help a little. Basically an option so you can charge your phone wireless in the car also.

    And I am sure there are other options out there as well.

    I would love to have the wireless charging, but I already know it will make both cases I use useless.

    I like the neo hybrid a lot but it is hard to reach the opposite edge of the screen with my thumb, and I am prepared to go naked if they release the cover in blue so I can show it off. The advantage to the thickness is that it will make the lens flush, so I don't feel like I need a back to the case. What I really want is a super thin crystal clear bumper to just protect the chintzy chrome edges from scratches with a fall out of my pocket, but I haven't been able find anything like this.

    If this is the case, I will risk going naked again.

    I only use my Case Mate tough Sport when at work but after the toiler incident I decided to use cases again. I went through a phase after I got the hTc One M7 last year I said good bye to it.

    For sure this will work with the OEM back cover and not reduce the IP rating? It looks like it will work just fine based on the photos but do you actually have this exact item?
