    Now that I preordered I'm looking into getting a wireless charger for this sexy beast. Which one are you getting? Can you recommend any good ones? This will be my first time using a wireless charger so I have very little knowledge of which ones are good and which are crap.

    This one looks to hit the sweet spot of features/good reviews and price for me: Amazon.com: CHOE Stadium Qi Wireless Charger 3-Coils Wide Charging Area Wireless Charging Pad for Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge,Nexus 6, Sony Xperia Z3V, Nexus 5 /7(2013) / 4, Nokia Lumia 1020/ 920/928, MOTO Droid Maxx/Droid Mini, HTC Droid DNA, HTC Rz

    3 coils versus 1 coil on the cheaper ones. Just means the charging area is bigger therefore it won't be as difficult to get your phone on there just right to charge.

    I've had the Nokia DT910 Wireless Charging Stand for my Nexus 5 and plan to continue using it. Haven't had any issues with it.

    This one looks cool and the price isnt that bad. Might get this.

    I just ordered this one, I figure car dock is one of the places I'm going to want wireless charging. If I'm at my desk I'll just plug it in.

    Got the free one from Best Buy with my preorder. Getting a second one for the office, potentially. If I get a second one, it will be the OEM one.

    I honestly never understood the big hype about wireless charging. The wireless charger still has to be plugged in right? so if thats the case I might as well just plug my phone in to charge. I can see the benefit if Im at a coffee shop or airport and they have charging pads to use but at home I might as well just charge it normally. Correct me if im wrong

    Personally I see it as a variant/extension of docking. Just drop it in the dock to charge. Great for windshield-mount chargers, saves a step. Otherwise, I may end up using a cable myself (unless I want something to prop up my phone next to the bed, maybe when I travel, that's not a bad idea either).

    I'm new to wireless charging. Will a wireless charging compatible phone, charge with a case like the Otterbox defender on it? Or with any case on it? I have a note 4 and thought about buying a wireless charging back cover. If I have to keep the case off, its a no go for me. Any info would be great. Thanks

    Cases can mess with the wireless charging .. So we aren't sure how bad it will mess with the S6.

    Spigen responded to my email on that question with the following:
    "Our developers have confirmed that our Galaxy S6 cases have been designed to provide all functions for the phone including the wireless charging feature."

    I'll wirelessly charge at night next to my bed and I'll have one at the office. In phones in the past I've had issues with the charging port loosening up after so much use. It will be nice to not have to rely on that. I'll use wireless when I can to avoid having that issue. Only time I'll be plugging in is when I need to quick charge.

    Wireless charging will work with a lot of cases, but it may not work with thicker cases like the Otterbox ones. I'd wait to order until hearing some reviews.

    Ha! I said the same thing once before. I've used wireless a few times and can understand how it's convenient and how some charging ports get beat up over time. The wall charger obviously will charge faster but I'll use wireless for overnight charging.

    I got the free one from Best Buy. I also already have a wireless charging portable battery pack. Don't think I'll be getting one for my car as I'll just use turbocharging when I'm in there.

    Yeah the Tylt is kinda expensive but I love mine. It's such a simple idea I'm surprised it took someone as long as it did to come up with it. Wouldn't want to do without it at work.
