    You will probably lose NFC according to the Amazon Technical info. Also note that this is a 1mm receiver, whereas most slim ones are .5mm

    nice find.. 600mA will take us what? 4-5 hours to charge ='-/

    but I think I'm going to do it anyway.. my S4 stopped working as a USB 6 months ago.. it still will charge but I'm afraid of all the different power connectors and plugging in and out messed it up. I dont want to do that to this phone.

    Also seen this a few minutes ago, S View cases coming with Qi charging built in which is what I'm waiting for...

    So I wish ZeroLemon's 10000mAh battery would come with a QI coil built in.

    The 3rd party Qi coils I tried with the Note 3 didn't work. But the official case does.

    Spending $30 on a coil that may or not work when you can spend $40 and get Samsung's own case with the Qi charger coil built in may be penny wise and pound foolish.

    Will this work with at&t? I ask because they are supporting pma (or whatever it is called, lol). When I followed the link and read the description, it didn't mention carrier compatibility that I saw.

    I'm also wondering this. I asked the Samsung dude at the experience shop at my local Best Buy and he said it will be Qi and "AT&T can't mess with it" but that's exactly what they did to the LG G3.

    I though during the intro of the note 4 they showed off a back cover Qi case. Non s view just the back cover.

    No?

    Samsung is producing both a replacement back panel Qi Wireless Charging Cover (retail USD $39.99) in both black and white, and back panel replacement S cover version Qi Wireless Charging Cover (retail USD $59.99) in both black and white

    With the Note 3 October 2014 release, these weren't available in the US until end of January 2015, and then became commonly available at half the retail cost by March 2015.

    There were some early reports of NFC loss with 3rd party coils. But most N3 owners have not made much use of NFC or S-beam. The main thing people would like to use NFC for --to add local wifi networks/password by swiping a NFC tag --still isn't supported by android.

    Thats what kept me from getting the G3 back in the Summer, AT&T not supporting Qi charging on their cases for it. I think the new S view covers with it built in will work but not 100% at this point. Will have to wait and see.

    The one I had with my Spigen case on the Note 3 is still flawless. It's no longer available but I think it was a lot less than $30 at the time. No sense scaring people off for no good reason...

    Just got it in the mail...

    So.. here we go. opened it up and there is no main plug in for it. just the usb, charging pad and coil for back of the phone.. took off coever and had to look at the ebay link again to make sure I put the pins in the right spot. So book mark it. Since the coil pack is thin and flimsy I used 2 very small pieces of tape to hold the damn thing in place while I put the cover back on. Everything does and will fit back on. Of course there will be a little bump but the back cover will close. I had it off the case and used the base with the stock plug. The Qi base has a red and green light to give you status which is cool. I was a 49% @ 9:50am and by 10:30 I was at 57% so its not too fast but of course this was while the phone is on. I took it off the base and thing was pretty hot. it might be a good idea to make something to prop it up a millimeter to get a little air space. but there is not much more before it loses it connection. matter of fact I put my spuigan? case back on and it would not charge. It just kept starting and dropping over and over . I would have thought there would have been more range before it drops but I guess not. maybe there are other bases that will work better then this one.. and still use the same receiver. I want wireless but now I'm looking at removing the case which blows. Right now I took it off the sammy plug and put the usb into my 3.0 on my pc. it doesnt seem to get as hot. I will do more testing, but for now it works ok. we will see how long.

    usb 3.0 doesnt give out enough amps so I'm trying with the kindle charger. I also do have my case on and seems to be working but you have to have it on the spot perfectly other cases might not have too much of an issue.. the directions says to remove it and that cases can reduce the charge..

    I will wait for the Samsung wireless back cover which will have both wireless charging and NFC functionality. And I can purchase it in white, black, pink, or gold most likely. Which would provide color mix and match possibilities.

    true, but you can have wireless charging now and for a 1/5 of the cost. (unless it blows everything up and there goes a $900 phone)
    Also I'm not into the samsung cases. I need a kickstand.

    As for the heat issue I would put a spacer or turn it off(will charge quicker also). Also looks like with the case it will charge but I noticed the green light flashing.. but when the phone is on without a case its solid. maybe the determines what level to charge. Once I drain this thing close to 1% Ill turn it off and see how long it will charge to get to full

    I bought this one or something very similar on Ebay. I received it and although it works good it isn't very thin. It adds bulk to my phone so that the phone doesn't fit great in my case.

    For what it's worth, the NFC on the Note 4 seems to be closer to the bottom of the phone. So, if the wireless coils don't extend too far down, it may not be an issue.

    Thank you lost and luv for the reviews. I am eager to see how it compares to the one I had for the Note 3 which was great. Also to see the difference between the pad that comes with it and the Koolpad I had with the Note 3 which might be better than the pad with this one. Koolpad was great and worked through my Spigen case. Not using a case on the GN4 so far.
    Koolpad is $24 on Amazon Prime but it's good.

    What is the point of these as you save about 2 seconds to plug over a normal charger and then have to wait hours more for it to charge ?

    No problem. My spigen case is easy to take on and off. It will charge on the pad if you get it right, but I noticed that the green charge light on the charging pad will blink green but with the case off it will be a solid green. Even blinking green it will charge but dont know if that means its not at the same mA or not.

    What is the point of these as you save about 2 seconds to plug over a normal charger and then have to wait hours more for it to charge ?

    your right.. just like the fight with the finger print things. it works most of the time and I like that option but once in a while have issues that **** me off.

    The main reason I wanted to try wireless charging was 1) its new to me and cool without wires and 2) the main reason is because my last phone(S4) the connector must have semi got messed up because when plugged in to any pc it would charge but not pop up a folder to TX things over. I spent tons of times trying different things/programs to get it to work and I just came up with it must have been messed up with years of abuse and changing the usb or controller parts for it aint cheap.

    Sooooooo.. what to do.. I have found super beam where I can tx filed wireless in my home network so I dont need to connect to that and now charge wireless but it is a pain too. have to take the cover off and power it down to really get a good charge that will still take hours. And in the end your still wasting more electricity then whats going in the phone. haha.. So who knows.. I may ditch it or mix it .

    Yeah, you lose your USB port but I don't use it for anything anyways, so it's not a big deal because I leave it plugged in and never remove it. If I need to plug it in into my PC, I just unplug it. BUT....I do have it plugged in and the phone seated into a leather wallet case (any case will work) and sandwiched between the case and phone. It's not noticeable in any way and it gives me wireless charging on the cheap till an original Samsung back is released.

    I used something similar to what you posted on my Note 3 but it made the back bulge out. Not to bad, but enough to where it left a gap near the camera. How's this one you mentioned?
