    Performs Flawlessly

    After receiving a new Galaxy S6 as a Christmas gift I decided to take advantage of its wireless charging capability. I read reviews of several different models and decided on the Tylt. Some reviewers had said that after charging overnight the battery would not be at 100% either because a notification interrupted the charging cycle or when the phone's battery was fully charged it would stop charging and start to drain. I have been using the Tylt for about 3 weeks and the charge on my S6 has been at 100% every morning, even after receiving notifications overnight. The unit's design also makes placing the phone easy; I just lay the phone down, in it's protective rubber case, in line with the tilted bed. I feel compelled to comment on some of the reviews I have read. Many reviewers took off stars because having to plug the charger into the wall with a power cord means that it is not truly "wireless". This is a ridiculous complaint. Where do such people think the charger is going to get its power? Bottom line - the Tylt performs exactly as advertised. It is a little pricey but well worth the cost for a product that performs perfectly.

    Charging my Moto Z2 Force with Tumi Qi Battery

    I've had problems in the past getting a low cost qi charger to work with my Moto Z Force and Moto Z2 Force2 phone with the Tumi battery mod. I read a review elsewhere where someone claimed it works fine for this configuration. Not so much for me. After purchasing this stand, I find with the phone standing upright, the charger is constantly attempting to make a connection so it doesn't just charge constantly once connected. Roughly every 7-10 seconds it will look like it's re-establishing a connection to the phone. This is the same condition I found with other chargers. It will probably recharge the phone but I don't care to watch it continue to reset constantly so I don't keep it on. However, unlike other chargers I've tried, if I lay the phone on it's side (portrait), it charges as expected. This I'm okay with this since my screen supports rotation. I would give 5 stars if it charged my phone standing upright. I recognize that this may just be an issue with the moto-mod battery that I have and may work fine for everyone else but I don't have a second moto-mod battery to try.

    Works as advertised. I like the angle of this charger and it was priced considerably less than the other brands of wireless chargers. As for the speed of the charge, I wouldn't call it a "fast charge", which is fine by me. The slower 1 amp charge rate is gentler on the battery(if you're concerned with the longevity of your device). I usually drop my phone in the cradle for 25-30 minutes at a time, keeping it between 40% and 80% where lithium batteries are most comfortable. It's very stressful on them to be held at high/full capacity for long periods. But back to the charger...I haven't had any issues with the positioning of the phone. I set it in the cradle, somewhat centered and it starts charging. It DOES charge through my case too. My only gripe, and the one thing keeping me from giving it a 5th star, is that I wish there was a cutout in the middle on the bottom shelf part of the cradle, so that I could more easily access the fingerprint reader to unlock my phone.

    Makes a great desk wireless charger

    I was looking for an alternative to the expensive Samsung charging pads. This particular charger was several dollars cheaper and came in a funky looking packing. However, It does work as it supposed to. You won't get a quick charge out of it, but the angle in which the phone sits allows me to see when it lights up with a notification. That being said, I have given it Four Stars due to a couple flaws. 1. It makes a ticking sound as it charges. It is pretty light overall, but in a quiet area it can be heard. 2. Once my phone is fully charged, it stops charging causing my screen to light up until it gets to 99% then it lights up again to charge. This continues until you remove your phone from the charger. I do enjoy the charger and bought a second one in black off of Amazon for my household. Same problems occur with that one, but overall the charger is a cheaper wireless charging solution than the competition.

    My Droid mini battery was getting tired. Had to charge it several times to get through the day. Yup, should have been shopping for a replacement phone or at least a new battery (difficult to change on this phone). Plugged in to my charger at 10% batt. left.......................nothing, tried again..........nothing. Rebooted phone...........still won't charge. Phone shuts itself off..........low battery. Now I'm in a panic. All my wall chargers and cars chargers won't revive it! Now what do we do??? Out for repair? Isn't worth it, needs a new battery, connection port for charger, and oh yes a cracked screen. Still need to download backup and transfer all the cra_ in the phone. Went online for help. One post said buy a TYLT................?? Checked it out, was compatible with my phone, bought it and breathed life back into the old beast. LIKE CPR FOR THE PHONE.

    Just OK Charger

    Happened to see this item on sale so I picked it up because it was a "Fast Charger" with the added bonus that it was upright. I thought I might be able to use at work to prop my phone up and watch a video or 2 while I work at my desk. But for me, it seems 45° is a bit too laid back for me to view the screen at a decent angle for watching videos. I think anywhere from 65 to 75 would have probably been the sweet spot. Anyway, no biggie, but the quickness of the charging didn't quite meet my expectation here either. The wall charger on my Samsung Note 5 will give me a full charge from zero in about an hour. This one will do it in about 2 hours. Anyway, I guess it's faster than a USB charger from a laptop, but not nearly as fast as a wall charger.

    Only charges in landscape mode

    I purchased this product over the Samsung wireless charger because I wanted an angle to see the clock on my nightstand. I also researched getting the lightest case possible so it would work though the case. It charges if I set it as landscape, but not portrait (see picture attached).. I've purchased the new Samsung S7 Edge and because the screen saver displays the clock in portrait mode, I'm forced to look for another product that works to my satisfaction.

    OK wireless charger

    Bought this charger to charge my Galaxy Note5...I previously had purchased (and returned) a Samsung wireless charger because of its wireless functionality, however I had to return it because it never charged my phone - kept pausing & you had to set the phone on the charger just so in order to get it to charge correctly. So, I gave this one a try in hopes that it might actually work - well it worked once!...I was on the verge of returning to BestBuy again, however I happened to set my phone on the charger side-ways instead of the intended position of being set upright...and low & behold - it charges! So, while its a plus to not have to plug my phone in every night to charge - I don't necessarily like the awkward position that I have to set my phone in order for it to work.

    BEST WIRELESS CHARGER EVER

    Posted
    golfiowa

    This is easily the best wireless charger you can buy. If you give this product anything less than a 5 star, you don't understand wireless charging. I've tried numerous flat wireless chargers next to my nightstand, this one is the only one I can "Link" in the dark. I just put it on the stand and it's charging. Plus, it's the only one that I can nudge with my arm that will stay put ( I actually slid it across my nightstand one night and the phone stayed put and continued to charge) I have a Droid Turbo with thick rubber case. I have the turbo charger for quick charges and this for nite-time charging. The wireless method is better on your phone than the turbo charger for overnight charging, ask the experts! This is the best wireless charger I have ever tested.

    Bought on sale and is doing the job of charging my S6. The " Tylt " is very desirable as you can view the screen and charging data at a glance. This visibility reduces the chance of knocking your device off the charging pad. It is also convenient to just place the device on the charger and not have to use the connection port; the life of the port will be extended. It takes twice as long to charge as the fast wall charger but it works fine if you're not pressed for time. One negative is if you charge the device while on or sleeping it will screw up any usage stats you may wish to review. This product will be enhanced in time but works well for home use now. Office or external use may have its limitations.

    I bought this for my Samsung s7 edge. I used it for the first time today and was shocked at how slow it charged my cell phone. As a matter of a fact I took notes as to how it compares to my other chargers. I set my alarm for 13 minutes. This charger charged it only 3 percent. I then used the house charger. It charged 8 percent. Then I used my car charger and that went up to 9 percent. I then tried using this charger again and it was 4 percent. Still half percentage of the house charger although you advertise "Rapidly charges your phone as fast as a traditional plug-in charger." Which is obviously not true. I am bringing this back to Best Buy.

    Works as advertised, and positions the phone at a convenient angle for use. However, the stand design results in it taking up twice as much desk space as other wireless chargers (e.g. Samsung's), which seems unnecessary. Instead of a 90 degree angle between the front and back legs, they could have brought it to 60, saving valuable inches of desk space. It takes up more desk space than my Galaxy S7 would lying flat. Additionally, the wall wart interfaces with the stand using a proprietary connection. Not sure why they chose to use a proprietary connection instead of a standard micro USB jack.

    This is a GREAT charger! I bought it because the charging port on my wife's Droid Maxx wouldn't connect to the charger anymore. I didn't want to pay the $150 deductible to get her a new phone so I bought this wireless charger and we've both been just amazed by how well it works! Don't have to remove the otterbox case, didn't have to download any software, nothing! Just take the charger out of the box, plug it into the wall, and lay the phone on it. Starts charging right away, and I think it actually charges faster than the cable did. Love the angle, too! She wants to get another one for her desk at work just because she loves the way it holds the phone so well!

    TYLT VU Wireless Charger

    The TYLT VU wireless charger is an excellent wireless charger for cell phones with qi charging capabilities. The angle in which it displays the phone is great for watching videos or accessing applications while it's charging. The only drawback is that it uses a barrel shaped power connector instead of a micro-USB connector, which is what the competitor versions use. The power supply is a little large, and since it is barrel shaped, you can't replace it with a regular USB style power supply. Overall, I think this is a great qi charger for home or office.

    Not much to say really, it charges my phone while on the stand. I'm even using a thin case on the phone with no issue. Its nice that there is an led on the base to let you know the phone is charging (in case your notification LED is off or not present on your phone). I've been using it for a couple months now with no issue. I love that I'm not wearing out my charging port and that my phone is help up at an angle so I can see it when the phone alarm goes off in the morning. I'm using this with a Samsung Galaxy Note 5. I've tested it successfully with an S6 as well.

    This product may be a little bulky but I like that it sits the phone up. The BIGGEST plus to this over the samsung puck is that it will charge with the phone case on. It even charges through the otterbox symmetry you just have to move it just right to get the charge connection. (I've found that once a connection is established with this case moving the bottom out a 1/8" to 1/4" helps maintain the charge connection) End game this product works without having to remove the phone case. This is on the S6 Edge.

    Does Not Charge Note 5 in Portrait

    Posted
    AlleyKat

    Basically, that's my only real problem with it - it says it supports landscape and portrait charging, but my Note 5 would only charge in landscape. Also, it's somewhat annoying because it comes with one of those 1-pin old-style wall adapters (which isn't all that common anymore, so I'm afraid it'll be harder to replace if it breaks), and it was a little fussy to connect. Considering I paid $12.37 in-store for this one, I might keep it for work or something. That was really the only upside.

    Bought the TYLT VU Wireless Charger when Best Buy had it on sale for $39.99. I read some of the online reviews for this product and I had been looking for a 3-coil Qi compatible wireless charger for my Samsung Galaxy S4 with a wireless Qi receiver. Unlike my previous wireless charger, I don't have to hunt for the sweet spot to enable charging on my phone. I just place my phone on the sloped surface and it starts charging. Whether I place my phone in portrait or landscape mode, doesn't matter. I am really satisfied with this product.

    With the exception of last night, it has worked really well so far. I use it on my night stand so that the phone charges overnight. It is a little finicky about how the phone has to be placed, I can't just set it on and have it start charging. I have to place it on the charger, but have it about an inch off the bottom rest, then when it recognizes it I can slide it down so it's fully resting. Last night for some reason, it didn't end up charging and I woke up to a completely dead phone. Will have to see what happens tonight.

    Amazing Charger for Bedside / Desk

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I bought this on a whim as I just purchased the Galaxy S7 and I love it. I actually bought 3 (2 Black and 1 Blue). 1 for my bedside. 1 for my girlfriends bedside (Sony Xperia Z3V) and 1 for my office. It's perfect for the bedside and at the office. Many other reviewers rate it poorly because it charges slow. It's a stand by design you are likely keeping on said stand for sometime. I don't care or need it to charge quickly when at my desk or while I'm sleeping. It works perfectly - though the pug in is a little bulky.
