    Hello, all. I'm currently using a note 3 and looking to upgrade to and edge, and I live the galaxy flip covers. I would also love to have wireless qi charging ability. Searching around, I've fount little receivers that attach to the battery contacts and appear to fit inside the battery cover. They're cheap, and supposedly easy to install, and they seem like a perfect solution. So great that it's setting off my "too good to be true" alarms...

    Does anyone have any experience with these? They're third party, and I'm concerned they're not safe for my new phone... if it's a matter of "perfectly safe, but might not charge super fast," then it's a gamble I'm willing to take. Not willing to potentially toast the phone tho...

    Any experience is highly appreciated! Thanks all!

    I've heard some reports that they tend to run hot. We were just discussing this earlier today in another thread.
