    It needs to have the Qi wireless charging standard. If you Google that, you'll do quite well finding most. :)

    Nowhere in the Nexus 4 literature does it state that Qi is the inductive charging standard employed, nor does the Qi compliance logo appear anywhere on the box, packaging or documentation that I can find.

    Speculation is that Google is preferring the competing PMA (Power Matters Alliance) standard and has contractually coerced LG to use it in the Nexus 4 manufacture.

    All rumor of course, except the lack of the Qi compliance logo and any "official" mention anywhere of it.

    Here's a standard they should ALL comply with: price it under $15!

    Can't believe they want 60 bucks for a CHARGER!

    The Powermat works fine. The Orb apparently sucks - phone slides off. Uh, duh!

    I got the orb as a gift and the phone started to slide off after 1-2 weeks. Huge pain obviously because it wouldnt charge at night. Eventually I cleaned the orb once or twice and every time from then on when I go to charge my phone I quickly wipe off the back of it (to get rid of oils from fingers) before I put it on the orb. It hasnt slid off as of now. Actually its pretty crazy how it holds on the charger now.

    I actually LIKE the orb. :) The only time I've had a problem with it is when my wife "dusted" it - ended up with fuzzy's and the phone wouldn't stick. I rinsed it off with clean water. Not a problem since. BTW, I have the official bumper but no case.

    I have not had any problems with the orb. I got it three weeks ago and have not noticed any issues with the phone sliding off.

    In fact, I can put the phone on the orb and turn it completely upside down and it still sticks.

    I also have an extreme guard screen protector on the back so maybe that is why it sticks like glue.

    I love my Orbs too. Once in awhile I'll lick my thumb and wipe off some dust so it's sticker, yes I know that's gross, but ah well.
