    So nearly twice the speed is a "modest bump"? Goodness me, I learn something every day. :thinking:

    Try it. You can always return it if it doesn't work.

    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.

    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).

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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):

    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.
