AC only or DC too?
Just ordered a Samsung charging pad (50% off deal) and bought the receiver elsewhere since the Samsung back detracts from the thinnest of the phone. Haven't received either. All the charging pads I've seem run an adaptor to the plug and then USB (on the input end anyway) and a typical coax type power plug to the pad itself. Since the adaptor is adapting AC to DC does that mean one could run the hybrid power cord from a cigar lighter plug in straight into the pad and have it function as designed? With so many car mfgs (Chrysler, Toyota) adding Qi chargers as add on console equipment in 2014 I am guessing, yes. I think my cigar plug-in steps down from 12V to 5v automagically. Probably need to verify that.
