Does anybody have one yet? Which one, and how well does it work?
I've been using the incipio ghost.. But if you want an easy to use qi charger... Get the tylt or any other dual coil or even triple coil charger...
I've been using the CHOE Stadium Qi Wireless Charger for since early this year, and it's been fantastic. It's a 3 coil charger, which means you can place a device pretty much anywhere on it, and it will charge. Single coil chargers have one specific spot where you have to set the device on it in order to charge, so unless you get it just right, your device may not charge. 3 coils just make it easier. The quality is top notch, and it's one of the best values out there for a 3 coil charger.
The Tylt that 94lt1 mentioned is a great 3 coil option as well if you want your device to be more viewable and don't mind paying a bit extra.
Any issues with overheating/overcharging or has that all been worked out?
I've never had any issues when using a good quality charger and OEM charging (like is built into the Turbo).
Most problems I've read about regarding overheating or charging are when someone has added a non-OEM charging coil to their phone or when a poor quality charger is being used.
With the Turbo, as long as you pick up a decent charger, you should have zero problems.
I suggest a triple coil charger.. As I said.. And as bsweetness said.. With more coils.. You can put the device anywhere and it will charge.. Single coils are a pain to line up at times.. Aka the incipio ghost....
With qi charging... It's a magnetic field I believe... There's a little heat or thermal conduction.. But its not alot.. Nothing to do harm to you or your device.. And its normal.. It doesn't cause overheating..
If you add a coil to your device.. Then it can become an issue.. As bsweetness said again..
Seems to work fine with my LG QI Charger that I used on my G2.
I second the LG charger, even has a cool little diagram to line up the phone and charger correctly!!
I have the CHOE Stadium as well. Just used it once. I like it, but became concerned about my battery temp reaching 114 deg+ then pulled the plug due to concern. I contacted Motorola Support to see what temps I should expect to see using wireless charging, but they have no info yet. Until I can verify if I'm damaging the phone I went back to the plug in USB.
I've not had any heat problems with the CHOE Stadium. Every phone I've used with it, including the Turbo, haven't experienced any issues. Hopefully you can get it sorted out.
Interesting. What battery temps does your phone reach during charging? Do you use the phone turbo charger to interface with the pad or a standard 2A rated adapter?
I haven't checked the exact temperature in a while, but it was never more than slightly warm to the touch (which is normal). I do not use the turbo charger with the pad. I use a standard charger.
