    I've been searching for a decent Qi Charger at a low cost and it got me thinking...
    How many actually use the Qi charger?

    I use the nexus wireless charger. Works well great build quality. Although I don't think this would fall into your cheap requirement.

    I found a few good ones like Zens I might order. Checking to see local stores.

    I was pretty amped for wireless charging when they announced the phone, but as the orb wasnt ready when the phone was, I kind of lost interest. I only like spending money on accessories at the time I get a new device. If the accessories take too long, I get used to using it without. Might still pick one up but the reviews have been spotty. Maybe a Zens like Fairclough said

    Zens has been flawless for me. Best cell accessory I've purchased. I won't go back to non-wireless charging now.

    Looking forward to the TYLT charger; had it preordered and then the ship date was pushed back a couple months to June I believe.

    I use Zens wireless charger. You can't find anything in local stores, I'm in San Diego, might have better luck elsewhere. I got my Zens charger for 41$ plus shipping. That's all I use to charge my Nexus 4.

    What does the "All the time" poll response indicate? That the wireless charger is their sole charging device?

    At night at home I charge via cable.
    At work the N4 usually sits on my Orb when I'm not toting it around.

    That you use it "all the time" e.g Everyday, every second day... just relatively frequently.
    Went a little shopping around stores today, agreed hard to find some besides the Nokia one.

    I bought the Zens from Amazon. What do I think of it? Seriously considering buying another one so I have one at work and at home. Disappointed my Nexus 7 isn't QI compatible. From here on I'd always look for QI on a new device.

    I never liked wired charging - the sockets on all my previous phones wore out eventually (socket get's loose and connection sketchy as a result).

    I tried a couple of cheap eBay Qi chargers and they were a PITA, no option to buy the OEM unit from Google in Australia yet so I thought I'd try the model from Gadgets4Geeks and it works a charm. Not what I'd call cheap (yet not super exy) but it does work everytime no matter which way I lay the phone on it.

    Use mine at work... wired at home... also serves as a "dock" of sorts for me as well... or at least somewhere to keep it at my desk!

    That's why I answered "sometimes"...

    I just wish the charger would be identified by the phone as "docked." I like the Clock Plus daydream while it's laying there.

    Yep. Definitely love the Clock Plus over stock. I tried Flipboard and Currents, but Flipboard just kept showing the same screen.
    I now have the charger on my desk with my desktop, before it was beside my bed, and it's freaking neato!!

    Problem solved. Android identifies wireless charging, Llama (beta) recognizes it, and invokes Activity Daydream (courtesy of Nova Prime launcher). I can even determine when Daydream is invoked - or not (e. g. not at night).

    Actually better than a discrete "docked" state.

    Can you use a nokia lumia 920 wireless charger with the Nexus 4? I think its Qi technology

    Supposedly all Qi chargers are supposed to be capable of the same charging current for Qi compatible devices. Jerry H. has had no problems with a Nexus 4 and a Nokia charging pad, but others have complained of slower (lower amp) charging. YMMV. If you can get one cheap, go for it, and if you don't like it, eBay it.

    bought my phone used with the google nexus orb. then bought wall charger. sold the orb. Just no need for it. Wall charger just faster and doesn't heat up my phone.

    LG's hockey-puck-sized charger, the Amazon.com: LG Electronics WCP-300 Wireless Charging Pad - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories , is at Amazon, hovering about $38... comes with 1.8A power brick, USB cable, and the charger, and so far they're pretty good (got one for the wife as well).
