    I am new to the Motorola Droid Maxx and I really like it. Does anyone have suggestions for a wireless charger?

    I use the Incipio Ghost 100. It's the closest thing to an "official" wireless charger for the Maxx, I suppose.

    It works fine. Works with a case on the phone, doesn't get overly hot, etc. No issues.

    I third the Tylt . Looks great, doesn't matter how you place the phone, silent running and stops when battery full so no need to take off in the middle of the night.

    One more vote for the Tylt Vu.

    I equate having wireless charging for a smartphone to having power windows on a car - you really don't need the feature but once you get used to using it you don't want to go back to the old way.

    Concerning the Vu, there's virtually no set-up required - you just plug it in and it works. The only change I'd make if I were running Tylt is I'd like the Vu to have an adjustable hinge point so the user could adjust the angle the device sits at while it's charging - I'd like my devices to sit a bit more upright.

    I have three Nokia DT-900 Qi Chargers that I picked up for $20 each. They are available on many web sites and the price ranges from $20-$50.

    Although some people have complained about the cost of the TYLT VU, I think it's a good investment in the long run (and I suspect the price will be dropping, too, as they recoup startup costs).

    I've paid that much for a device-specific charging dock for previous phones, then had to replace them when I switched devices. The TYLT will work with any Qi-compatible device, so it should be useful for years.

    I think that it charges at 750ma, which is low. Most are 1.0-1.2A.

    Yes it does but its a little finicky in landscape. Not sure if the same thing happens with a bare phone, or its just because of the OtterBox. Still a great piece of hardware and I highly recommend it.

    I had the nokia chargers but they overheated my phone and was a pain to line up. I got a tylt for Christmas and love it. No issues at all! Lines up fine and really like the stand position. My mom bought it for me on amazon for around $90 (I know they are cheaper direct but she didnt know) and I still think its worth the money. I also have a griffin reveal case on mine and it works fine.

    Another vote for the Tylt Vu. I got mine in the cyber monday sale for $35, but I'd pay $70. I much prefer something with a closer to vertical orientation so I can use my phone as a clock / alarm on the nightstand or to view on my desk at work (though I don't need a charger at work anymore for my Maxx). The Vu has a nice clean design, is very solidly constructed, abnd has a large charging area, meaning it is pretty much impossible to throw it on the charger and not have it charge.

    I have a tylt and the otter box, and it works great. I love the combination. You can turn it sideways upside down or normal and it still charges the phone. it's not picky how it is placed on the charger.

    Another +1 for the Tylt. The only issue I have is that I like to treat my phone as a bedside alarm clock at night. I had been using the "Daydream" feature to automatically turn on the clock in dim night mode while charging, but, unlike hard-wired chargers, the Tylt turns off when charging is complete, which is equivalent to disconnecting the charger, and the clock turns off.

    I've got a ghost 100. My first Maxx heated up real bad 3 times in 3 months while in daydream mode over night. Since I got a new Maxx I've had no problems heating up. I will say that you do have to center it up to the charger or it may drop charge a couple of times before constantly charging.
