I Admit I have a gadget problem, as in I can't get enough of them.
SInce getting $500-1000 phones is out of my budget, I spiff up what I have with Add on gadgets or cool apps.
SO this past month I spent a bit of time on Amazon and ordered wireless receivers and charging pad for my Samsung phones.
They must be cool, as my sons are both envious (iPhones phbbbbbb! )
I Spent about $20 on a "cool pad" and receiver. The pad is a little smaller than my Note. It stops charging when my phone is at 100%.
Duh, only one of my phones uses Qi. Both have 3000 mah batteries with ridiculous power-on times of 25-30 hours and I'd only ever use the pad near the bed at night, just to keep from hunting down the cable in the dark.
That's exactly where mine is. I put the cable in the car.
Neither of my phones came with Qi ability. I had to buy the pad and this funny little black receiver. It is just bulky enough to make getting the back of my GS3 hard to get on, and I can feel the bulge. The Note had plenty of room for a receiver. No bulge and the back went on without issue.
i Almost spent $40 to get a Qi back cover from Samsung and another $90 on a pad. Then I did the old head slap and checked Amazon.
I Like the Stone chargers. I have been looking at a couple of those on Amazon too. They have colors, neutrals or bamboo. My sister and Nephew have the GS3 and have birthdays coming up. I haven't been to a Starbucks, but I hear they have Qi chargers built into the table tops.
