    S7 in a Lifeproof FRE case, will it work or no?

      Not guaranteed. I found it's tricky and you need to really make sure your case can fit 'right' on the angle. That being said, I have one of these and found it wasn't too hard to align even when half asleep. Sure beats looking for the cable. Be mindful of the fan noise though.

        Wont hear it over the PC fans… will probably live on the same desk. It charges off the PCs USB ports now.

        Fan noise? This has a fan???

        • +3 votes

          Yeah… The fast one has a fan, the regular one does not. The fast one is worth it, it does charge pretty quickly.

        • +2 votes

          Yes for fast charging adapters, if you do not use a faster charger adapter it'll not engage the fan.

          @Daniel15:
          Thanks… Have never even heard any noise from my one (I use the fast charge adaptor that came with my S7). Had a look and the holes behind the grill area are very small so can't even see a fan lol

    •  

      Some wireless manuals state 5mm tolerance - I also found that some of the cheaper wireless chargers (the small ones that you either stick inside the case or in the case of iphone, stick on the back of the phone and then into the charging socket) dont work as well.

    Good price. Picked one up at my local (last one) and turned out to be faulty. Took it back and swapped for the white flat version which works fine on a S7 Edge with Caseology case on. Before this I purchased a so called "genuine" one from an Ebay seller. Died 2 weeks in. Looked it up and the tell tale fake signs were there. Sent a message to the Ebay seller requesting a refund (and expecting a fight) but got a full refund an hour later. Well whatdya know…

      That's a common trick by fake sellers. If let's say 10-20% customers complain and ask for full refund they would still earn huge profit.

      I bet they "cancel" your transaction, rather than return and refund, so you can't leave a feedback.

      •  

        Yep! Same with fake memory cards, etc
        Theu just keep selling ebay is more interested in their fees then keeping fakes out.

        Oh well I've got to keep lots of fake merchandise for nix. Especially toys.

          Also got stung by a fake EBay one. Wouldn't charge through my Spigen Tough case and was noisy when charging. Returned it got a refund and got one from the Good Guys. Genuine and Happy Days.

        Feedback can still be left for cancelled transactions, they cancel them to receive an eBay fee credit.

        •  

          Nope, at least not always. I had a trans cancelled after the seller was a prick, and my feedback was removed. Maybe it depends how they go about it.

          @Tuba:

          Nope, at least not always.

          Yes always, once an item is purchased you cannot stop someone leaving feedback.

          I had a trans cancelled after the seller was a prick, and my feedback was removed.

          Because the seller complained and an eBay rep manually removed it, usually when the feedback is inflammatory or unfair.

          Doesn't happen often and is at eBay's discretion.

        •  

          @Scab: Youre wrong. My feedback contained nothing inflammatory and was deleted. When asked about it, the reason given was transaction was cancelled, even though I had to wear the postage costs. Its worse, the item was represented as genuine, was in fact cheap unbranded generic Chinese copy.

          @Tuba:

          My feedback contained nothing inflammatory and was deleted.

          I said usually, and you need to go back and read my original reply and the context.

          Cancelling a transaction doesn't prevent feedback as was suggested, sellers cancel them to receive a fee credit.

          And the only way feedback can be removed is manually by an eBay rep, which is what happened in your case (nor do you need to cancel to ask eBay to remove feedback).

          the item was represented as genuine

          It wasn't a tooba?

  •  

    Thanks, wanted one for a while now…..

  •  

    If it's only $30 well worth that concierge thing if you haven't signed up for one before. They send you 3 $20 vouchers every year, I've got a wireless Logitech keyboard ND mouse, USB sticks money off a tablet for my mother a free power bank and universal case for my mum so far :)

      Interested but do not understand

      • +1 vote

        Egg extended warranty is called concierge, on small items it's usually $30 for 3 years warranty, but they also give you 3 $20 credits each year (uptown a max of 9 credits if you own 3 warrants.)

    Does anyone know if this works with the s8+ ?

    I paid $75, good device

    Beware you need your own PSU for it

  •  

    this isn't the fold-able one right?

  •  

    Anyone had any luck charging there note4 with this device… Cheers

    • +1 vote

      Did you get something for your Note4 to support wireless charging? I dont think the Note4 has wireless charging itself.

      •  

        Hi mate, nah I havn't, just thought it may support wireless charging.. Thanks for the reply…

        •  

          Samsung make a wireless charging S View cover which is sometimes packaged with a charging base. The Note 4 isn't "fast charge" compatible though…

    •  

      You need the Qi charger case if you want wireless charging, if you do this charger will charge your phone.

  •  

    Why doesn't my LG G6 have wireless charging ;(

  •  

    Any difference between this and the "Samsung Wireless Qi Charger Charging Pad"?

    •  

      That one is a regular wireless charger, this one is a fast charger. Samsung say that the fast one is around 1.4x the speed of a regular wireless charger. I've found it to be even faster than that.

  •  

    Does this unit have a light that always stays on?

  •  

    I picked a few of these at a local store in Melbourne Central for $39 ea, they had 3-4 left as of Friday.

    Be mindful with the fast charger adapter it'll engage the fan that is quite noisy during the night, but if you use a non faster charger adapter it'll not engage the fan.

  •  

    "Fast" wireless charge is still slower than standard charger (non-quickcharge)

  •  

    I have one but don't use it. Faster to charge using cable (Fast charging).

    Thought this was a "discman" when I saw the picture :(

  •  

    Some advertisements in eBay use the words "wireless fast charge" so look for the correct Samsung model EP-NG930

  •  

    Received my wireless BlitzWolf charger from a previous deal for $20 only a couple of days ago. I like the convenience of dropping my phone on the desk without trying to find cables in the dark.
    If I didn't get one last week, I would definitely get this one.

    For those who can wait. The same charger is usd32 at amazon plus shipping. But that one come with a USA psu normally cost you $20 extra. I bought mine in May, and it fast charging my s8+. I never hear the sound of the fan.

  •  

    Can you pls share the link when it's available Couger? Thanx.

  •  

    Thanks! Gold one looks nice…hmm…

  •  

    Will this work with the s7 edge and its otterboxndefender case?

  •  

    Thanks, just picked one up today.

  •  

    Cheers OP, was holding out for a good price. Grabbed 1 :)

  •  

    why on earth this thing need a fan, does it really get that hot

  •  

    price matched one at jb hifi today $45 (incl travel adapter) ticketed price was $119

  •  

    Link now broken…which has made it very tough for JB to price match.
