    I Qi'd up my truck with a magnetic mount. So baller. I'm all "oh look, my phone floats in mid air and charges with no wires." Apple was right not including that in their products :nojj:

    Doesn't it need a case to charge or is it integrated into the phone?

    You can add Qi to a Samsung phone for about $12. The iPhone is too gay for Qi compatibility.

    Seems like a cool concept, but the pad still has to be plugged into the wall and is way bigger than a cable. What's the advantage?

    Apple has decided that wireless charging is a dumb idea just like phones with big screens, but proprietary chargers are awesome.

    I have an Iphone 6 for my personal cell and a Samsung S5 for work, the iphone 6 is better. I;m not a fanboy but if I had to choose between the 2 I'm taking the 6 :grad:

    The max charge is 1amp too. I hook my phone into a 3A charger and it goes to full charge in no time

    My pad has the same footprint as my phone, and is about as heavy as a piece of Styrofoam. The advantage is that I can check my phone while it's charging without worrying about the wire, and I can put it on the charger with one hand which is much easier, particularly in the dark. Plus it's just awesome because it's wireless.

    It is awesome because it's wireless, no question about it. I think the technology is in its infancy and it's more of a gimmick. Wired charging is superior and the Lightning cable is dummy proof and I can plug it in if it's pitch black.
