    I have used several Turbo 2's on different wireless chargers. As wcjeep said, make sure they are Qi and you should be OK.

    I have not yet tested a wireless charger but a few minutes ago I plugged my phone back into the turbocharger and it is now charging! I am not sure why it has only just now started working but the phone is picking up the turbocharger and is charging.

    I know this situation sucks, but it sounds like you have a defective phone. It's a well documented, known issue with the Turbo 2. If it's getting that hot, where it's too hot to even hold it, I would stop trying to charge it with the cable. Buy a cheap wireless charger and use that so you can recover your personal data and wait on a replacement phone.

    Mine ended up the same a year after the wired charging port died. It work fine wireless charging for about a year and then kaput. The only thing I could do was pay for a refurbished phone from Moto.

    Anyone try replacing the battery yourself? It doesn't LOOK that difficult.....just not sure how easy it would be to find a repair shop to do it.

    I considered it, but Moto made me a pretty good deal on a refurb, so I went that route. I did watch two battery replacement videos on the Turbo 2, and with the correct tools it doesn't look too difficult. The hardest part looks like gluing the back cover back on evenly so it looks good afterward.

    I do see a few repair shops by me. I think I'll call and ask if they replace the adhesive (which retains the water "proofing"). If not, I'll do it myself. Although if it would take me an hour or more, anyway, then $30 is worth it.

    I asked one of the local repair shops by me what phone adhesive they prefer, so I had an idea which type & brand to buy. He said...."super glue". OK, dude. I ordered 3M phone adhesive tape and has seemed to work ok on the screens I have replaced. I'm not sure what to use on the back plate of a Turbo 2. The 3M tape would be too thick.
