  • Wow that’s expensive! It’s got me wondering how much the S3 kit will cost.

    It seems Nokia’s solution uses Qi, which is inductive charging (like the old Powermat and many electric toothbrushes).

    Not sure what the S3 will use; chances are it’ll be similar in which case my old Powermat may work. In fact if it works a Powermat might be a cheap alternative to the charging plate.

    Apparently one of the major alternatives to inductive charging is resonance charging, which doesn’t require such precise placement of the phone. You can even put the phone next to the charging object rather than on it. I think Intel was looking to support that technology, which would allow you to charge your phone just by putting it next to, say, your laptop. If the S3’s going to use this it could explain the looooong delay in it being released, but I still think it’s unlikely.

      • That’s good for the consumer that Samsung is using it as well. The new Nexus is also rumored to have wireless charging so one would assume that that would also use Qi.

        • My gf just got her Note II (thanks guys) and it seems to have the wireless charging built into the back.

          She’s still charging the phone from the mains before the first use, but later on I’ll see if my Powermat can charge it.

  • Look for QI wireless chargers. They will work.

    Different wireless systems use different coil sizes etc.

  • im looking to get a wireless charger but was looking at the powermat, has any one tried it with the lumia 820??
