I think I just got the last yellow one because I wanted 2 and it said not enough, but was happy with 1.

Does anyone know if the product sold here comes with an AC adapter? If not, it apparently uses a different plug to the usual micro or mini USB type. The product sold on Amazon comes with an AC adapter, but could be packaged differently being the USA.




Tivo upgrades to operate with the new OzTivo EPG, support and service. Over 280 performed here so far.

Anyone bought a spare one they are willing to sell please? My sister in law needs one for her Nokia Lumia 930. Will pay for shipping.

Hopefully with not using USB it means its not stuck with only 1 amp input so will charge nice and fast.

So that's why it won't let me add to cart. Oh well, you snooze you lose :(

Cheap qi chargers are so slow, and on the note3 at least, it still reports a decent current in gsam battery monitor, but its clearly not doing it as it ends up going down if its doing heavy wifi syncing or similar. The samsung charging dish is much faster than the $12 chinese ones I have.

Nice review of it here. I have one myself and have had no issues with charging speed on my N5. The review focuses alot on the quality of cable though.

It has a rubber ring on the surface to hold the phone in place. It doesn't work too well if you have a hard plastic case, but other than that I've had no issues.

Has anyone received theirs or got a shipping notification?
I haven't gotten anything after the initial order confirmation, and the order isn't showing up in the 'your orders' section of the website


Edit:
Just called and they said it was shipped out today :)
