    I can't find any review of this item anywhere (though it's sold by many vendors, including Amazon Prime). Who's going to try it first? :) [Note that although the Amazon description doesn't say it explicitly, the charging cradle bundled with the battery also doubles as a wireless charging pad, assuming you've changed your LG's back to one that supports Qi wireless charging] Too good to be true? [I'm especially wary of the battery's quality -- lots of garbage out there].

    Looks good, probably too good to be true, can't find it on our UK site, but there is one exactly the same by Itorrent http://www.amazon.co.uk/Itorrent-Ch...7345047&sr=8-8&keywords=lg+g4+charging+cradle, again, only £12.59. All the pictures are the same, they are the exact same, only difference, Itian have put their name on it where Itorrent haven't. I think I might buy it and see what it's like...

    Well, I pulled the trigger and got one. Unfortunately, while the battery and cradle are (surprisingly) good, the cradle is *not* in fact also a wireless charger -- the vendor has apologized for the misleading label and promises to modify it "soon".

    I would definitely be leery of a $15 battery, especially one that comes with a wireless charging piece.
    Instead of this you could pick up the wireless charging/NFC antenna to replace the NFC only antenna on the G4's back. They are around $10, very easy to swap out, and work great (search G4 wireless charging on Amazon). My phone wirelessly charges just as quick as when I plug it in. Plus I got to keep the aesthetically pleasing black leather back (those circle cases are ugly).

    Well, aside from not having the wireless charging function (which as I said was a labeling error according to the vendor), the battery and charging cradle are actually very good -- the battery is at least as good as the original LG (to my surprise). Since I already have the wireless charging capability on the phone and a charging pad, I'm not complaining.
