    I've been looking at getting a wireless charger for my turbo, and have run across several issues with wireless charging on this phone. Have these been resolved? If so, what chargers do you guys use?

    Long day..obviously I meant lollipop, the turbo was released with Kitkat....

    Some turbos experienced an issue where they wouldn't completely charge via qi charging...they'd show full charge...but would quickly drop...where as when plugged into a charger they wouldn't drop as fast...

    Gotcha. I'm not aware of that issue and haven't seen it happen with my tylt.

    Mine would drop to 75% just checking news before I left in the morning when qi charged.. But if I plugged it in .it would be at 85% on average... Not a scientific way of comparing...but it sure seemed like it wasn't quite there...I'm charging on my tylt charger now...see if its changed...for me...

    I recommend to get a Qi "certified" charging pad. It is a way to make sure you will have full compatibility. There is a lot of stuff out there which is "compliant" or "compatible" but not certified. With those it can be hit or miss.

    If a pad is certified it is usually mentioned and they have the official Qi logo.

    I use the Tylt Vu also. I have had no issues with it what so ever.

    I use a CHOE Stadium Qi with no problems, even with a Otterbox case on the turbo. But don't use it often, maybe once every other week.
