After switching a couple times between not connected and wireless charging it started charging again and the phone went back to sleep. It only happened the one time during the night that I am aware of, but I'm wondering if other people have this happen periodically? Hopefully it's just a fluke
    That sounds normal to me. It sounds like your phone charged up to 100%. Then, after hitting 100%, your phone stopped charging like it is suppose to. After it ran down a bit, it started charging again.

    Do any of these chargers have an on/off switch?

    I know they don't draw a lot of power, but I see no reason to leave it on all the time.

    BTW - this is my first post! I love the DNA, it's my first smartphone.

    I thought that might have been the case when it came on so I looked at the battery % and it hadn't hit 100%...it was closer to 85%. It hasn't happened since...so I'm hoping it was just a fluke.

    If you turn the charger the phone will continue to drain battery on standby just as it does during the day once charged so I would not expect them to have one any more than any of the charging docks do.

    Just picked up two of the LG WCP-700 Charging Mats from local Verizon store. I decided to take them apart and remove the speaker. Worked fine when I put it back together. The charging pad is just the right size for the DNA.

    So far so good, I came from a Palm Pre and I liked the touchstone. So much easier not having to mess around with a microUSB.

    I first purchased the Verizon-branded, LG-OEM'd plate and was disppointed. After 12 hours, the phone only reached 99%. I now have the Nokia DT-900 and am very pleased. The phone fully charges after 2.5 - 3.00 hours with a normal day's use and the phone's amber charging light turns green upon completion. The DT-900's charging indicator light remains constant (as opposed to becomeing a slow blink to indicate the phone is fully charged), but HTC tech support indicated this was nothing to worry about, as the phone is no longer charging once the green indicator appears. Hope this helps!

    I understand what you're saying, but I'm talking about the ability to turn the charger off when the phone isn't "attached".

    I know it can be unplugged, but it's a real PITA to get to the electric plug where I want to use it.

    It sounds like you need a power strip with a switch.

    LOL - so I guess the answer is no

    You can always pull the plug from the charger base but I'll look when I get home but I don't think it has a switch.

    Here:

    So me being a efficiency freak hooked my new Nokia DT-900 charging plate up to my Kill-a-Watt and did some quick tests.

    Surprisingly NO, as in 0.0, Watts, Volts or Amps registered until I put my 920 down on the plate!

    So good news, don't worry about leaving them plugged in all the time.

    No how many more should buy?

    Seriously, Nokia is doing an excellent job here. They have really though of everything for this round of phones, I'm impressed.

    I picked up the DT-910 from the Microsoft store for $69. There is a promo that if you check out their phone you get $25 off a purchase over $75, so I bought a thumb drive, too.

    It's really nice the way the phone sits upright while charging. It's going to look great on my desk at work.

    On a related note, the rep asked which phone I have so I showed him the DNA. He was quite impressed, to the point he asked me to show it to his co-worker.

    Hey guys. Just got the nokia dt 900 yesterday and it's definitely convenient. When charging my dna, the plates indicator light glows steady like it's supposed to but even when my phone is fully charged, it stays lit. Even this morning after about 10 hours on the charger, the light was still on although the indicator on the phone was green. Anyone else having this same experience? Thanks

    I just received my nokia FATBOY pillow, its the same charger, just in a canvass pouch cushion. It always stays lit. I am going to call nokia after the holidays and just clarify that this is not going to toast my beloved new phone. I will update soon.

    These Nokia chargers are awesome! Got the 910 for my nightstand and the 900 for the livingroom. Work great!

    I think it's designed this way to let you know it's 'connected'

    I have one Fatboy next to my night-stand and a DT900 in my livingroom. Thinking of getting one more to put one on my desk at work. Very convenient...makes having the usb flap actually useful so it doesn't collect any dust inside the charger plug-in.
    I was actually thinking of buying one for my car too and making some sort of contraption to hold it in place...might be a bit much though.

    I have both the Nokio and Energizer chargers. I've contacted HTC support twice and they state that the phone should not be left on the charger after achieving a full charge. This seems ridiculous for a phone that has wireless charging capabilities. Anyone else heard of this or (hopefully) refute?

    They are basically full of crap. You can not overcharge LiIon batteries and unless the device or charger gets overly hot there is no reason to unplug when done.

    I remember reading, but forget where, (maybe this thread?) that some of the Qi chargers beep when a full charge is reached. I want to place one on the nightstand next to my bed. Which Qi charger is silent? Thanks!
