Anyone buy this? Just got mine today.
The inductive charging dock is $69.99, while the inductive battery cover is $29.99. But I think that Verizon is doing a promotion where all accessories are 25% off, so this helps if you are on the edge about buying it or not.
While I love inductive charging, I feel like it's a pain with the Bionic. I mean, now the entire device is just as thick as the top/camera portion of the phone . It's not as bad as the extended battery cover, but it's still something to complain about. And the cover is quite a bit heavier than the stock cover (I'd say around 3x-4x as heavy!!), although this may be a blessing in disguise because of how flimsy and cheap-feeling the stock battery cover is.
The charging pad is huuuuuge, and it has very stupid notification lights. Why does it blink when it's charging and stay solid when it's done? It should be the other way around (you'd want it to blink and get your attention when it's done, and you DON'T want it to annoy you by blinking when it's charging, right?). The power indication light is red when everything is OK. Red is not the appropriate color to use when something is NOT having problems, why not use green? The magnets aren't that strong either, just strong enough to keep the device in place if it's on a slight incline.
Overall though, I think it's worth it. The bionic definitely rips through battery (although my last frame of reference was an under-volted Droid X with kernel tweaks and an extended battery). I think the inductive solution would be a bit more appealing to new 4G lte users, since I'm sure owners of the TB and the Charge have gotten somewhat used to the the gas-guzzler lte radio.
