    I was wondering if anyone could recommend me a wireless charging pad I could get on amazon or something?
    It doesn't have to be Samsung's own, just one that you know works and is decent.

    Thanks is advance!

    Not much out there at this time. Samsung's deal is going to be about $100 and currently no information (At least none that I could find) is out as to when it would be avaliable.
    Samsung Galaxy S4 Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Cover review - GSMArena Blog

    As an alternative, I would reccomend this.
    WiQiQi Wireless Charger Kit For Samsung Galaxy S4 or S3 - Ultra Thin & Light | Indiegogo

    I went ahead and ordered. It's $55 , but with a mid-June 13' ETA.

    Good luck

    I wonder if this would work with our S4....

    Amazon.com: galaxy s4 wireless charging kit

    It works with ANY qi wireless enabled chargers. I know the S3 has a different mAH than our S4's but they are basically the same thing.....

    For wireless charging you need a reciever and a Qi charger. The receiver is basically a pad that sits between the battery and the battery door, but it has 2 "nubs" that make connection with the 2 gold connectors next to your battery compartment. I bought mine off of ebay and I paid about $10 for the receiver and $30 for the Qi charger.
    I have a S3, but I think they make the receivers for the S4 as well.
    Something like this

    Also Verizon has the LG Qi charger on sale now for $39.00 with free shipping (which is a REALLY good price). I ordered one yesterday, so we will see if it is any better than the PowerQi I got from China.

    It is only a pre-sale, and that is freaking expensive!

    Not to mention the fact that I chose to get the S-View cover and there is NO wireless charging built into it, yet LG was smart enough to put it into their Optimus G Pro flip cover case. Samsung charged $60 for a cover that you can't use with wireless charging. Talk about crappy. I know there are aftermarket charging connectors you can add but that's not really the route I wanted to go.

    if anyone still interested, why not just diy for $9 using palm pre?
    Not like others on Youtube where you have to take the phone apart, I only have to remove my battery and it's cover.
    I think I'm the first to do this on Alcatel OneTouch Mix.

    I have a LG charging mat and use it for my Nexus 4 and have the insert for my Note 2. I wanted this and still may get it but from the picture it looks like the back is thicker and my case will no longer fit if I use the charging back...Bummer...

    Has anyone tried to use a wireless receiver pad for their S4? Were you able to close the back on it?

    Anyone jumping on the wireless charging accessories from Samsung for their S4? I may get the back only using my 50% off coupon I received for registering my S4 at Samsung.com
