    I ordered a TYLT Vu wireless charging dock and am absolutely loving it. The output is 1 amp, same as a standard USB charger, so it charges just as fast. Charges fine with my Diztronic TPU case on as well, and it saves the micro-USB port from wear and tear. The dock tilts up so I can see the display on my nightstand. In lieu of dock mode I have it set to enter Daydream mode using the Timely alarm app, which is beautiful. The TYLT Vu costs a bit more than the Griffin dock ($70) but I won't have to keep buying new docks each time I upgrade to a new phone, as long as they have Qi wireless support (which is becoming more and more common). All in all this is an excellent option and I highly recommend it!

    I was all set to buy this until I read this http://www.tylt.com/pdfs/TYLT-VU-Compatibility.pdf
    It won't work with my shell/holster. Same problem I have with the Griffin dock. :(

    Not sure what you mean about that PDF file. All it says is that the Maxx is supported without the need of a special back shell, which is needed for the S4 for instance. That doesn't mean it won't work with your case.

    The availability of droid maxx accessories is terrible. Even seidio doesn't make a CONVERT case. Its pitiful.

    Man, that TYLT is freakin expensive. $70 isn't a little more, it's nearly double.

    They gotta drop that price if they want to sell those things.

    I read that to mean it won't work through the holster. And, that is the same issue I have with the Griffin. (it won't work because the holster is too thick)

    It charges fine through my TPU case. Qi charging uses electromagnetic induction so the case should not be an issue, unless it's thicker than 4 inches.

    Sure but if you're like me and need a dock for every new phone, you've already saved money after the second phone. Qi charging is the standard going forward so there's no need to ever buy a new dock.

    Sorry meant 4 cm. Still highly unlikely that your case is that thick.

    I'm going to just buy a cheap wireless charger and make a stand. The tylt is ridiculously expensive.
