    When I became aware of the wireless charging option I decided it was something to try. I learned of various third-party offerings but didn't want to potentially degrade the water/dust resistance or possibly void the warranty, so OEM seemed worth a little extra money. Also, saw mention in various reviews of problems associated with some of the third-party options out there. I ordered this and the Samsung Galaxy S5 Wireless Charging Battery Cover (CG900IBUSTA). Note - you MUST have either this back or some other charging back installed on the S5. The charging pad is plug and play - literally. Plug the charging block (included) into the wall and the USB cable (included) into the charging pad. This is the identical wall charger that comes with the phone - so you now have a spare - bonus! No other setup required - except for installing the charging back on the phone. Looks nice as you would expect for a factory Samsung accessory - an attractive desk accessory. Small footprint, only 3x3 inches. Charging works perfectly, dead simple. Using the Samsung system I have not encountered any heating problems I have seen mentioned by some, mainly non-OEM systems. Right off the charger my CPU temperature reads 93.5 and that's not hot. Right off the charger the phone back is only slightly warm to the touch, really no more so than if it had been on a charging cable. My impression is charging takes slightly longer (no empirical evidence to prove it) , but the convenience of not dealing with the port cover or cable more than makes up for it to me. Now whenever I'm not using the phone I just set it down on the charger and it stays charged. Answering calls or messages, I just pick it up without monkeying with a cable. Some have noted that the pad is small - I don't see this as a problem. I have had no problems with placing the phone on the pad. The indicator light on the pad glows green when the phone is properly placed for charging, and I have not found it to be finicky at all. Nothing but gravity holds the phone in place. This should not ordinarily be a problem. If you have cats or kids or other critters that might disturb the phone on its perch, be advised. Some have expressed dismay that it stops charging when the battery is full - well, good! Leaving a fully-charged battery on a charger is a bad idea. So overnight charging, in the morning my phone is at around 95%, and hasn't been charging a full battery all night. Pick up the phone to reset the charging cycle, put it back down for a few minutes and top it off. Tell me you don't pick up your phone first thing in the morning anyway! Not an issue to me, all chargers should be so smart. I have really come to like wireless charging, especially knowing my phone's environmental protection and warranty remain uncompromised.

    Works as Advertised

    Works like it should, although it does charge slower than a direct plug-in. I often find myself pulling the cord from the puck to direct charge it if I need a more rapid charge. Also, if I need to use it while charging, well, leaving it on the puck isn't much of an option. One thing I was impressed with is that it will still charge wirelessly even with an Otter Box Defender case on it. Something I didn't think of when buying it but was happy when it still worked.

    Works like a charm for my LG V10!

    Fantastic wireless charger by Samsung. It charges faster than I expected it to and is not just for Samsung phones. I use to wirelessly charge my LG V10 (with the optional charging back SKU: 4701800) and it even works with the Otterbox defender case on! Great to just set it on charger at night and wake up ready to go. The edge lights up when charging and turns green when finished. You can still use your phone while it sits on the charger as well. The charger itself needs to be plugged in either to an outlet, or any usb power source. Works perfectly for me and my LG - Love it!

    Samsung Note 5 with 2 different cases, Otterbox Defender and an Astor Co-Mold case. The phone has to be on the pad just right for it to start charging, but then stops charging all together after about 15 minuts and the pad just blinks. This happens with BOTH cases and also WITHOUT either case. I would not recommend this product for the Note 5.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY

    I paid $49.99 for this and it will not charge your Note 5 as advertised. To get it to even begin to charge you must remove it from its case. I threw the box away so didn't try to return. Save your money. Even on sale for $29.99 not worth it. I contacted Samsung and they are pretty much worthless too.

    Nifty Charging Solution

    As you might expect, this disc does a good job at charging the compatible Galaxy devices. I am using the Note 5, and the pair works pretty well. My handset has the flip cover case, and when it's inside the case, you have only about a centimeter or so freedom in which to line the two up (otherwise, no charging). It is nice, however, that the disc lights up when you've gotten it right, so you know. It should be noted that their is a lot more line up freedom when the device isn't in a case. I don't know who isn't keeping that phone in a case, but for those brave souls, I'd give a fifth star.
