Damn, missed out. :(

Anyone know where to get some decent affordable wireless chargers? The cheap unbranded ones seems dodgy.

I have a couple of them and they seem to work pretty well.  I've been using two different unbranded ones which I bought from DealExtreme & Ebay for about six months now with no issues.  If you're interested I can find you the links to buy?
They costed around NZ$25 & NZ$10.  The placement on the cheaper one needs to be more specific than the other.

Yes please, it's sometimes hard to tell what products will work properly from DX.

This is the more expensive one from DX – US$21.  This one works really well.  http://www.dx.com/p/metrans-mwt03-super-mini-micro-usb-wireless-charger-transmitter-for-nokia-samsung-more-black-226778#.VFUo-52SzWU

I
 also have this one, it's a lot cheaper at US$6.  It works well, but I find the placement of the phone has to be pretty specific, which is annoying sometimes.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Qi-Wireless-Power-Pad-Charger-for-iPhone-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-S4-Note2-Nokia-Nexus-/200973639674?pt=US_Cell_Phone_PDA_Chargers&var=&hash=item2ecaf65ffa

Wireless charging is not the same as NFC.

You can get wireless charging shells for some Lumias, I don't believe the 620 is one of them.
