    Default Aluminum magnetic charger - quick review

    I believe that's what the charger is called everywhere I see it. Quick review on the pros and cons

    Pros:
    Strongest magnet out of the 3-4 I've tried before
    Looks like it charges as fast as the USB connection
    Looks fancy
    LED light
    No more USB port opening, yay!

    Cons:
    Still wiggles when connected because it's not exactly flush.
    Little bulkier than the standard chargers
    LED light doesn't change colors to show if charging or not

    Overall I like it. Stayed connected through me typing this review on the phone no problem! That was my biggest issue with others, they weren't strong enough to hold on.

    I ordered from Amazon but they ship from China so it took 2-3 weeks to get it

    I didn't get the cable one. I made sure I bought the office Sony dock. The dock is great btw

    I ordered one from eBay when I had the Z Ultra. IIRC it was Sony and very sensitive and sort of a PITA to connect.

    Having said that I will consider the OP when I pick up the Z2.

    I ordered the oem Sony magnet charger cable via eBay. 11 dollars each. I cannot believe how much better the oem magnet and fit is one click and it's in 100% of the time. compared to the after market ones I bought off of Amazon they are Night and day. I also noticed it charges way faster too.

    I got my Sony magnetic charger today, my Z2 was down to 15% and was fully charged after 2 hours and 7 minutes.

    IIRC, it's roughly 53 minutes faster compared to Sony's USB 2.0 cable.
