If you’re a Nexus 4 owner who’s been waiting for accessories like most of the Ausdroid team, you’re in luck.
Our friends at Gadgets 4 Geeks have been testing a number of Qi wireless chargers with their Nexus 4 and after a few weeks of testing and teasing, they’ve found a suitable device – it doesn’t suffer from the intermittent charging issues we’ve heard about, and it has a matte surface so the Nexus 4′s glass back doesn’t slide off.
The charger has just gone on sale for $55, with estimated delivery just before Christmas. As a bonus, Gadgets4Geeks is offering a free Ultra Thin Matte Nexus 4 cover with preorders – avaialble in black, white, dark blue, light blue or red – and free Express Post shipping. This is one of the first commercially-available Qi-compatible chargers in Australia.
Ausdroid readers can also take advantage of an extra special – if you buy 2 or more chargers you’ll get 10% off if you use the discount code “G4GAUSDROID“. This is also good for 10% off any order on the site over $70.
Stock is limited – the next shipment won’t be available until mid-January. A few late-night Ausdroiders have already placed their order. We’d also like to thank to Yianni from Gadgets4Geeks for putting up with our incessant enquiries.
