    Does anyone know if any charging pads are available for purchase yet? and if so, which one you think is the best?

    I am really wanting to get a couple of the Nokia Fatboy Charging Pillows, but can't seem to find any online to buy...

    I want to use the wireless charging on my 920 like a week ago!

    Got one of those weeks ago before they blew up the price, I suppose it just works with the 920?

    Just received my charging pad, and it works GREAT with the 920.

    Bought it for $50 on amazon. I'll be using this one at home, and use the free Nokia one at work.

    It was $20 back on Sep 21 but guess it got popular quick!

    @KoukiFC3S: nice to hear it works fine, thanks.

    Engadget just had an article about the charging chip in the 920 and its match in the fatboy pillow and other new Nokia chargers. They stated they provide 4x charging speed when paired. Im not buying anything else...

    Yes, got lucky. Figured I wouldn't lose much if it didn't work, guess we'll see if it's as fast as the Nokia ones.

    People also seem happy with the LG WCP-700 It comes out to about $40 with shipping. (Not Amazon Prime unfortunately)

    Some people seem to be annoyed by how loud/much it beeps....

    I think it's 4x the charging area. I have found this to be accurate, it's really easy to charge the 920 wirelessly. It's not picky about its placement on the pad at all.

    Speed wise the energizer charges really fast. Last night I was taking a bunch of pics and videos and my phone stayed at 100% battery because I set it down on the charger in between shots.

    I was looking for that one at the Verizon store, but they stopped carrying it. The beep would get really annoying though. I would rather get the Nokia charger for a single unit.

    The energizer single mat one is ~$45 on Amazon right now. That's not too bad, but if Nokia's own one is $49.99, then I am sure more people will go the latter.

    My plan is to get the charging stand for work and the energizer pad will be used at home. I want at least that one so I can use the NFC feature.

    The energizer charges 2 devices. :) One for my 920, and maybe a nexus 4 by its side?

    I'm planning on getting a charging pad that supports 2 or more devices for the living room (my gf and brother will also have 920s), two charging stands for the bedroom end tables and a charging pad for my desk at work.... Assuming the price is right for these things.

    I say for the price, the dual energizer pad is a pretty good choice. The Nokia stand is good too b/c of the NFC possibilities.

    Glad I bought 2 of the dual energizer pads while they were $19.99 on Amazon. something told me to buy more, but I just didnt feel like it. I might give 1 away as a gift which leaves me with only 1. I knew with the Nokia 920 release, the price would get bumped up once the hype built.

    I managed to snatch an Enegizer Dual Charger on eBay for $30 with expedited shipping. It's going on Amazon for $58.

    Yeah, the prices have jumped. I bought 2 of them off eBay for $20 shipped each in October when I fully decided to get the 920.
