Qi Wireless Charging Pads

I have a Galaxy Note 3, and with Samsung's official S View wireless charging case finally releasing, I'm starting to look at compatible charging pads. I've never owned one and, frankly, have not paid much attention to related news. Can anyone recommend some good products?

I have the Nexus 5 wireless charger (I use it with my Nexus 4), and that thing is pretty sweet. Not sure how well it would work with the Note 3 though. It's only about 2" x 2", and there is some kind of magnet-locking system that snaps the phone in place. If your case doesn't have that then it might not balance well on the charger (I assume that at least part of the locking system is within the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 phones; don't know if it's a standardized thing across devices).

I'm the exact opposite of TennSeven. I have a Nexus 5 and I'm using my old Nexus 4 wireless charger at the office (still around on Amazon or eBay for WAY less than I paid originally). Works great. Although I'm thinking about getting the N5 wireless charger for home since I don't need it to be at an angle and I really like the magnets keeping it in place. Also, for the car, I found the Air Dock: igg.me­/p­/622245­/x­/6081604. I think they have a solution for the Note 3. Bottom line, I would spend a little more on a premium charger that has all the features you need. Also, since it will be more visible than most chargers, you want to make sure it looks decent and doesn't have any annoying (IMO) bright charging indicators that will keep you awake.

It's interesting that you have good luck with the Nexus 4 charger. I wanted to get that back when I picked up my phone, but from what I read a lot of people were not happy with it, and apparently the Nexus 4 used to slide off a lot, I guess despite the magnets (I had no idea there was a magnet system until I picked up the Nexus 5 wireless charger).

I can definitely say though that the Nexus 5 charger is pretty nice.

I use it mostly at work so I'm constantly taking it on and off of the charger so it didn't really just sit there long enough to have time to slip off. And I don't believe the N4 wireless charger has magnets like the newer N5 and the AirDock do.
