    Nothing is cooler than wireless charging. Here is a little known fact that even I didn't know until I came upon an awesome review by Droid Forums Moderator "MandyMakesApps", the Galaxy S4 is Wireless Charging "Capable" not Wireless Charging "Equiped". This bodes well for Samsung stock holders as this makes the purchase of their wireless charging back and wireless charging pad ($90) seem to be a pretty good buy. As Mandy stated I feel like there may have been a bit of deception in Samsung's marketing.

    You don't have to shell out crazy cash to get wireless charging on your Galaxy S4. Apparently there is a stick on wireless charging receiver module by Qi that can be had for only $12. Once that is installed you can grab a used wireless charging pad on ebay for a reasonable price or use one that you already have.

    Mandy has put together a great writeup on how all of this works and how exactly it is used. There are also some tips for how to apply this to your Galaxy S4! Check out her full writeup at the link below!

    Wonder if there is something like this for the Note 2. I want wireless charging but I don't want to have to take off the back cover or cut holes in it.

    There are these same tags for the Note 2, but it only works with the AT&T or international version. Those versions have the wireless charging contacts accessible. With the Verizon Note 2, you have to cut a piece of the case out to access the wireless charging contacts.

    Very interesting...so they included the feature on the MOBO, but deliberately covered it with case material. Well...just goes to show you that licensing can play a HUGE role in who does what where.

    Ditto. I want that for my nexus, but am not crazy about soldering and cutting on these crazy expensive devices!

    Yes. If you look at a Note 2 from AT&T just to the right of the battery compartment is a notch in the case that reveals the two contacts for the wireless charging. But if you look at the Note 2 from Verizon in the same location, the contacts are missing and it is all plastic.

    Diabolical. Reminds me of early Copiers, where certain "features" were not "installed" on the lower end models, and if you wanted to add them, they were at a premium and required a service call to "install" them. Truth was all the features of the top of the line model, were on all models down to the economy version, all the technician had to do was flip a couple dip switches and the "features" suddenly came alive.

    Reminds me of the old floppy disks where you'd have to cut a simple notch in the side and you'd double their capacity.

    Then we'd walk to school in the snow, up hill both ways, while fighting bears using our pencils. God I'm old.
