    Has anyone fitted a qi wireless receiver to the back of a Moto z and then placed the Moto shell on to cover it? Just wondering if it will work or do the magnetic connectors and qi receiver stop the shell from connecting to the phone?

    I have not done this but I was disappointed Motorola dropped the QI charger from this phone by itself. I don't want to buy the battery mod must to get QI wireless charging. It won't fit in my case with a battery mod attached.

    Dropped from a previous Moto Z?

    No. I had a droid mini before the Z Play. Moto assist was also way better than Android Auto.

    Sure, I did. But you must remove original back as it contains magnets. My solution was to buy QI charger combo "Micro USB Type C Qi Wireless Charging Receiver Module + Launch Charger Pad Base" on eBay and on Amazon: "Moto Z Play Case, Cimo [Matte] Premium Slim Protective Cover for Motorola Moto Z Play Droid (2016) - Black". Installation was trivial. Works just fine. Finally no connecting cables. Charging pad is very light and easy to carry on a trip. As Moto Z Play has very good battery utilization, I use chager daily, but every other day would be just enough. Total cost was $9 for charger and $5 for back cover. There are drawbacks, though. Slow charging only (no complants from me) and usb port permanently covered. So far I like it and yes, it should be standard feature, not $50 add-on.

    For those who wish Qi charging was built in, I'm curious how you would make that work, considering it would need to work with Mods that cover the entire back of the phone, and often add considerable depth.

    I do wish they offered a thin style shell with Qi built in.

    why isn't there such a mod?

    Easy to make and selling like sliced breads, i guess.

    you really don't need a battery pack with the Z play, I am a heavy user and. 1.5 days no problemo.

    Just wireless charging
