I’ve been spending the last week testing out the Samsung Galaxy S 4; it truly is one of the most capable and feature-filled smartphones available, but there is one trick it can’t do — inductive charging. But as of today, that is no longer the case. Galaxy S 4 owners can now purchase a Samsung Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Battery Cover, which will allow them to conveniently charge their smartphones without fumbling for cables or plugs.
In case you read the last sentence quickly, let me make sure that you caught the fact that this isn’t a case, it is a battery cover that replaces the one that ships with the S 4.
How cool is that? No bulky case to add unnecessary weight and girth to your svelte S 4; instead, it’s just a slightly thicker battery cover with added capabilities.
Charging the phone using the cover takes about 3 – 4 hours, so it’s fast, convenient, and a great bedside table or desktop solution. The cool thing is that this charger will also work on any other Qi Inductive Wireless Charging device … even the Nokia Lumia 920!
The Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Battery Cover is now available for purchase at Samsung.com for $49.99 and $39.99, respectively. For more information, go to and http://www.samsung.com/us/
