    Inductive (wireless) Charging Cover

    Has anyone picked up the Wireless Charging Cover from Verizon for the Droid 4 yet?

    I'd like to get an idea of which charging pads work with this because the only pad that Verizon says is compatible beeps incessantly from what I've read...and I can't put up with that.

    I did. The manual, which is two pages of info and twelve of lawyerspeak, says it is only for the Droid 4 and "a charging pad that is compliant with Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) standards."

    I'm assuming most pads out there are compliant so I ordered a powermat 1X. It won't get here till next week. Then I'll know, I guess.

    As an aside, the cover didn't make the phone much thicker. About a sixteenth of an inch. Noticeable but not terrible.

    Mine's not in a case but I'm thinking that's a definite maybe, especially for the more rigid of cases. It isn't very much thicker but it definitely is thicker. When I measure it with my dial caliper that I just happen to have laying around, I get just under 5/8 at the original thickness and just over 5/8 at the thickest part. In exact inches, that's 19/32 and 21/32. So I'd guess some cases would have more problems than others.

    Depending on the thickness of the case and its conductivity, I would guess that it would charge but possibly with some loss of efficiency. It's an electromagnetic field so it would probably have a range of diminishing intensity.

    Actually I've got one for those times I can't charge but I have a problem that, apparently, isn't all that common. I often go to bed after my wife does, which means I do everything in the dark, and I want my phone on my nightstand, which means I charge it on my nightstand, which means I hook it up in the dark. And those micro usb plugins aren't all that dark-friendly.

    A charging pad where I can just plonk my phone down to charge and go to sleep would be great. But I'm beginning to think that era isn't quite here yet. The powermat I ordered doesn't work and I'll have to return it.

    My wireless cover will be here tomorrow. I am going to be getting the "Verizon branded" LG model pad. It's cheaper than most of the others and from what I've read you can pop it open to cut out the mini speaker which is the only major annoyance I've seen from reviews...

    I'll get back on how this works. Anyone tried other pads/mats/transmitters?

    That sounds like my only hope. Now that I know only certain pads will work with this thing, I have to use that one. I was going to wait for one to come out that I could use but I've got no problem at all with ripping out that speaker by the roots as long as it won't kill the pad.
