It's expensive, but the Orb is the best wireless charger you can get.

- Got mine yesterday. It confirms my thought that it's pretty much double what it should cost but the technology is awesome! Luckly, mine doesn't slip at all. I used it over night and the n4 was fully charged and in the same spot I put it in before I went to bed. The angle of the orb is awesome for using the phone as an alarm clock as I can just reach over and swype the alarm off unlike before were I had to pick the phone up. (Not that big of a deal but it's the little things right?)
At work it makes running to and fro from my desk a breeze since I always put my phone on the desk anyway. Now it's propped up and charges at the same time.
In the end, it's probably not worth the money. But since just about everyone reading this is a nerd or geek at some level, (come on, admit it) then yes, you need this orb! All qi charges are overpriced but the Nexus orb feels futuristic and actually works. (Unlike a lot of the complaints I heard about the Palm Pre TouchStone)
Summary: My Nerdhood feels more complete with this orb!Feb 21, 2013
- could be $20 less, but it is nice to have this cool device at the same time.Feb 21, 2013
- I added a screen protector to the back of my Nexus 4 and now it sticks to the charger just fine. Seems pretty silly that I had to do that, but it was an easy fix. I really love the charger now. I have it next to my bed and I can just grab the phone to return a message, then set it back down on the charger without messing with the cable in the dark. Very nice. Not going to be able to go back to a phone without this feature. :)Mar 16, 2013
- My Nexus 4 slid off once and that's because I've been putting the orb in my laptop bag using it both at work and at home. the "sticky" on the orb got dust and lint and whatever on it. Taking a damp cloth to it fixed it. Super sticky again!Mar 16, 2013
