    Default QI standard Wireless charging receiver

    Anybody have this and know if it works well? I am thinking about pulling the trigger on it but dont want to waste my money. Forum on XDA seems to think its ok but there was never a definitive answer. Thanks

    I was looking on getting a powermat, almost the samething.....but I am confused about the whole QI aspect. I have a flip cover and posted a topic specific to the mat , but almost the same question about wireless charging. I will be subscribed here, hopefully someone knows more about this technology..

    Okay, so I ordered one of these. Does anyone know if the palm touchstone would work with this receiver?

    I don't believe the Touchstone is QI compatible. The Nokia Lumia 920 charging plate however is QI, so that should work.

    Ok, from what I understand about the device, the wireless charging is tied into the two posts that you see when you remove the back from of the phone (there are the nfc posts and also the wireless charging posts).

    Just from the electronics I have done, and this is a stretch, you have to get a system that would either allow you to place the charging coil to come in contact with these posts at the correct voltage (which for this phone, I want to, but at the same time don't want to experiment), as this one requires higher amperage to charge quickly.

    I have a qi mat for my wi but I don't trust my own skills to not short out the device or worse. I have had lipo packs puff with hobby related things over time, but never had one explode. I wouldn't wish that on anyone so guys please be careful! I want to tinker to but, it's too dangerous for my tastes.

    I wish they would just come out with the backs, as there are so many things that have wireless charging now.

    But, I do understand their slow release because of the above. If anyone finds warrantied backs, I'm more than willing to experiment and buy one, but please, please dudes, don't rig it, as it's not very forgiving to blow up a lithium battery.

    The Nokia is Qi compatible but I was in verizon today and they have a QI charging plate that is bigger and the note fits better on. Also Verizon sells a S3 back plate with wireless charging built in.

    Yes, I read about the back for the s3 a few months ago. At that time they mentioned that it, and the note 2 back would be coming soon. So hopefully, this is somewhat of an indication the backs for the 2 will be coming soon. I can't wait, as I'm don't wish to be tethered to cables any longer all over the house.

    It's a blessing and a curse (have to take the bad with the good) that the battery life is so long. For me, the only thing is, the majority of the time, 24 hours is nothing to obtain. The issue comes in add to "when"the 24 hours comes up. I am up at 430 am, so in order to run it down to 5-10%, that normally falls into the 7 to 730 am time for me. I am on the road, in and out of the vehicle, thus seeing it to charge isn't an easy option. I probably should just buy the extra battery and charger route as I think about it.

    I think if we see something it will be at MWC or at the Samsung event when they announce the GS4, whenever that may be. I think I am going to spring and get this receiver, Its $17 so its not too expensive and I know people with the Lumia so i can try it out on their chargers and then decide if I want to buy one myself.

    Lol, that sounds good and let me know how it goes. Honestly, I don't have the heart to experiment. I love my home dude... 4k degrees nonstop burn is no joke....

    There is a cheep fix as well to just make one from scratch and use a palm back. For the price this looks cheeper. Not sure I would want to prolong my charging time though. Also, I really dont ever "need" to charge, so a micro usb slip every other night doesn't bother me. Maybe I will pop on this

    This unit arrived today. Looks like an official Note 2 Samsung back with the charging circuit board taped inside. Unfortunately, it didn't work since one of the contacts that connects it to the phone had come unsoldered. Consider me the guy that took one for the team.

    Do any of you know what settings need to be on for wireless charging to work with one of these add-ons. I have the Nokia charging plate.

    Im unaware of a setting, from what i understood is you put the back plate on and then set it down on the charger.

    Got the Qi receiver tag off ebay and it works as advertise and charges my Note II up with no problems. Tag is thin enough to fit between the battery and door without a budge forming.This is the one I got.

    You know that a Qi receiver tag or Qi period is different than palm's touchstone technology. You can't mix the two.

    To use a Qi Receiver you need a Qi charger and to use palm touchstone you need a palm receiver.

    Hmmm. Well that would explain it. I thought the touchstone was qi based. Hence why many ebay sellers bundle one with their note 2 with backs. Any suggestions for a good match, preferably one that holds note 2 at an angle?

    If you got the palm version built into the note 2 backs only the palm touchstone will work. If you have the Qi tag then only a Qi charger will work and there are not many built to an angle like the touchstone as QI is not magnetically based like the touchstone. There are some nokia ones that are Qi charging stands that stand the phone up.

    Awesome to know that!!
    I was looking at a Palm touchstone on amazon for $6 and on ebay for about $15..... So, Qi charging pad will be the one to get for me!
