    I just got my Qi pad/sticker today for my LG G3 because sellers are annoying and they don't give it to us stock but thats a story for another time.

    Well the title says it all....What Qi wireless chargers are good and won't break the bank?
    Plus if it stops charging when my LG G3 is full that is great!

    Welcome to Android Central! I have a Zens that I got from ShopAndroid.com, and an LG that I got from IceMonkey.com, I think. They both work well.

    Check out daily deal sites like 1sale.com, DailySteals.com (which also includes IceMonkey.com), and Woot.com. I often see decent wireless chargers offered there for around $20, from brands like LG, Nokia, and Incipio.

    Zens works great! I also have a Nokia charger that I got on sale from AT&T. Let us know what you get and how you like it.

    The TYLT VU is a little pricy, but it's dropped from about $100 to $60 on Amazon.

    The design is unique because it's a desk stand that holds your device at a 45 degree angle. Because it's a stand, I also find it easier to get the phone positioned over the charging coils.

    I justified the price to myself because I've bought charging docks at about $75 a pop for my last several phones and they've all turned into e-waste when I upgraded.

    The TYLT should work until Qi2 or some other charging standard comes along.

    As soon as the Web page loaded. Is this a trusted site? What should I look for when choosing a Qi charger?

    I've never had an issue with DailySteals.com. I check them all the time on my Nexus devices and my Chromebook. What happens if you just go to DailySteals.com first, instead of the direct link I posted?

    I clicked the link you posted and got "can not open this forum/topic thread in app" message. So I entered it manually in browser bar.

    Turned out to be a cookie issue. Lol. That site has some pretty good stuff.

    Just got a cheap charger MC02A. It is charging, ... but only in a very narrow spot. As soon as I move my phone on the pad for a few millimetres, the charging stops.
    My hope eas that I will be able to place my phone on the mat without much positioning. For example, in the bedroom, just before going to sleep, I don't want to fiddle with the position to find the exact spot.
    Is my requirement realistic? Are there any better Qi chargers, which don't require accurate positioning of the phone? Or, should I rather wait for a new standard on Qi?

    Most of them allow about 3-4 (an inch or so) cm variation of placement but, remember, the phone and the charger form 2 coils of a transformer, so they have to be in pretty good alignment for power transfer. It's not the charger or the standard, you'll have to wait for someone to invent new physics.

    Try placing the phone at right angles to the charger - I find that gives just a bit more "wiggle room".
