    I love the look and apparent functionality of this charger. I do think it's priced on the high side, and that plus I bought two of the TYLTs when they were half priced keeps me away. Very very nice looking product though.
    For a while, Amazon was selling it direct for the ridiculous price of $99.99. They've recently cut it to a more reasonable $57 -- which is in line with some of the others mentioned here. At least one other seller is offering it new for $49.99. It's all plastic, but the chromed parts are a nice fit with the Galaxy Alpha's brushed metal frame.
    Also, it generates little to no heat (an issue I've had with some of the cheaper 'hockey-puck' charging pads).
    Lastly, I've often been annoyed by the lights on most Qi chargers. They can be VERY annoying at night (even the tiniest of lights). I come from webOS phones, and their TouchStone chargers didn't have any lights. Anyway, my point is that this one has the light on the charging pad face itself -- so that it's hidden when you put the phone down on it.

    My vzw only charges at a rate of 640 mA according to Gsam. Could someone check theirs to see if that is normal? They claim 1 amp. Could someone also check the tylt? Please don't quote specs. Install Gsam and check actual charging rate.

    Thanks!
