So nearly twice the speed is a "modest bump"? Goodness me, I learn something every day.
Anybody willing to guinea pig? I'm so tempted, but with the holidays coming up, I need to calm down on the accessories purchasing:
Amazon.com: OEM Palm Touchstone Wireless Charge Dock+Grey Battery Door+Car Charger for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100: Electronics
Thing is, I have the International Note 2 that I could so try this on, but just so hesitant to spend that much.
Try it. You can always return it if it doesn't work.
u first! ...lol
LOL!!! To be honest, if I hadn't already gotten an extra battery I'd consider this. I probably would be that guinea pig since there's not one review about it on Amazon.
Where does tge phone sit? I thought there was a mat that the phone rested on?
Yeah, I'm kinda in the same boat. I already have the 2 battery kits I purchased from Samsung. And since my International phone sits in airplane mode, on standby most of the day and mainly gets used in the car, I've only had to swap out the battery on the weekend, but that thing lasts a long time just sitting in standby/airplane mode.
My car charger became irrelevant all of a sudden with 2 extra batteries accessible at all times, coupled with them all being 3100mah. I've never been this unafraid to use the phone as much as I needed, for fear that I wouldn't have a phone to use in the event of an emergency. This phone has seriously exceeded my expectations.
That thing that says "Palm" on it is the "mat" it sits on (but it's not a mat, it's a platform).
Details on Palm Pre Wireless charge Mod!!
Nice! I might just do this on my international Note 2. Cool that it works on Sprint one, with some modification.
Only thing is, I can't find any wireless charging car docks for the palm pre (but haven't really searched yet).
Too bad the details on his setup aren't available anymore, but that is pretty awesome. Although, I imagine that his touchstone setup involved magnets of some sort (to hold the phone in place...like that other car mount that someone had posted as a car mount option), which wouldn't be an option for me.
Wouldn't that work if you glued the Touchstone charging unit to the back of a holster?
Thank man. Is it just me or does the setup look a little strange? I tend to prefer the square mat setup.
I honestly don't know because I don't even know if the Touchstone charger is magnetized already. If that's the case, I may not try the mod.
It's just you...LOL. That's just what Palm came up with for the Palm Pre (and I think the Palm Pixi). I have no clue why it's not flat or whatever, but it is what it is. This is different than Powermat. From a brief search, they use different RFID to charge wirelessly.
Qi wireless receiver for the note 2
my setup, dont have the s3 anymore.
I'm so hesitant on a case just yet...I mean I really would like even just a jelly one (since I use the car mount that puts a metal disc on the back, and without a case it will pull off the battery door when you pull it off the mount lol) but I want to see how my battery life on LTE is...if it sucks I'll have to get a Seidio battery and then I'm stuck basically with one case from them that will fit.
Can you confirm because I've never really heard it before...but the inductive chargers charge slower right?
The only benefit I could see is that you wouldn't wear out the microUSB port or bend anything.
yes it's slower than the USB/adapter
Just switched to HTC DNA with integrated wireless charging. I purchased the Nokia Wireless charger and works fine so far.
Does anyone know of an angled charging station which uses the Wireless charging instead of having to dock it? I would like to have it sitting upright while charging. Not sure if the Palm one would be sufficient.
the palm one does not work, I know there are some in korea that does what you want.
For those that do the wireless charging mod, but don't want to use the Palm charger, here's a new article that Chris Chavez just posted up with a LG charging pad that lies flat (and mention of Energizer making a charging pad also):
Hands-on: Nexus 4 wireless charging [VIDEO]
Hmmm so there's Qi wireless charging for the Note 2...
If only there was a way to get it to work with the Power Matters Alliance gear, that way I could charge my phone at Starbucks.
