    First impressions of the Zens wireless charger for my Nex 4

    I got the Zens single wireless charger for about 42 bucks delivered. Ordered on a Sunday and delivered on Wednesday form Shopandroid. Free shipping because I ordered an additional item and they give you free shipping for orders over 50 bucks. No tax and they were running a 15% off for the July 4th weekend.

    I use a TPU case and placed the phone on it several times and each time it started to charge. It is not fussy at all about placement. There is a thin outline where you should place the phone. There is no light until you place the phone on it. When you put the phone on the pad the light turns red then quickly green when the phone begins to charge. When the charging is complete, the light and charger go off. The phone also wakes up and makes a jingle when it begins to charge. I charge my phone overnight. The first AM I got up, and the charger was off but the phone was only charged 96%. I put it back on the charger for about hr and it was still charging but up to 99%. When I got home from work, my phone was 69% charged. I put it back on the charger. I checked it after about 2 hours and it was still charging but it was 100%. I again charged it overnight and it was 98% when I got up. I think when the phone reaches full charge the sucker turns off. I hope it comes back on at some point. This AM, it was 100% when I got up.

    The phone does get warm when charging. It comes with a hard wired plug and not a usb cable and adapter because it puts out 12 volts not 5. It is rated 1000am.

    Well, so far I like it:

    It works with my case.
    The phone does not fall off the pad like other I have read about
    It is not fussy on where you place the phone like others I have read about
    It charges faster than I thought
    Lights keep you informed of what it is doing.

    They give you a very thin piece of rubber the size of a dime that sticks to the pad. They say if is for the Nexus 4. I assume it so it wont slide off if you put the phone on naked and it vibrates. I did not install it on mine as I use a case.

    My only concern is whether or not the charger will turn back on after the phone has charged and then dropped down again.

    A note about customer service: About a week ago, I sent a question to Zens through their web site. I did not get a answer. That Annoys me. Nowhere was I able to find if this charger worked with a case. They dont say one way or another on their web site and not a lot of places sell this thing. I was able to find a review somewhere that said it would work.

    Your concern is not necessary, if it meets the qi standard, it will surely turn back on after the phone has charged and then dropped down again.

    I may also want to see the pics since i think 42 bucks could be too much considering that i got my CHOE Qi Wireless charging package from amazon for 24 bucks.Its also Qi standard that means it can charge any Qi enabled device
