    Hi, i finally took the plunge, my phone is it its way from America(before Trump closes the U.S down.lol)
    I would like to get a wireless charger but have never used one before and I'm a bit confused with the adds on eBay(from china).
    Any advice on what I need and/or recommendations on something you've bought would be greatly appreciated .

    If you plan on using wireless charging a lot,it's best to get the OEM Charging cover:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wireless-Charging-Battery-Back-Cover-Case/182010093516?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid=777000&algo=ABA.MBE&ao=1&asc=20131227121020&meid=cde4c07aad654ecca222b35b6f370dd7&pid=100009&rk=1&rkt=1&sd=391363449670

    Admittedly,it's quite a bit more expensive,but,a lot of the aftermarket QI Charging covers are garbage & not worth the packaging they're shipped in.

    If you want a wider variety to choose from,check out this thread @ XDA-Developers:

    Our you could do what I did.
    Bought myself a $3.00 wireless charging sticker for V10.

    Peeled off the stock NFC sticker and replaced it with the new wireless charging sticker. Works great and I still have stock battery cover.

    UPDATE.
    wireless charging is working via a cheap ebay kit. i had to remove the NFC stick from the battery case,fit the charger sticker then the supplied NFC sticker on that. I'm also using a cheap qi base. surprisingly it works very well,no overheating and the charging light on the base turns off when it's fully charged.
