    Why wouldn't it ? It's got QI wireless charging. If it has the updated QI version 1.2 (newest version, supporting longer distance from charger and faster charging), it still will work with the older chargers but, just not support the newer features.

    I have like 4 Nokia chargers, then 3-4 cheapo ones I got on fleabay, so I take them to work, if I lose the cheapo ones, I don't care.

    Just wondering if the height of the 950 XL would be too high to interface with the wireless charger. In other words, how close does the Qi area on the back of the phone need to be to the "active" area on the charging stand to work.

    by the looks of the internal photos (just been published by your local friendly FCC) the Qi coil is centrally placed in the device - see first photo

    If it works on the 1520 then should be fine with the 950 XL

    Do you guys think there will be a new more powerful wireless charger for quicker charging times released for the 950XL or is there pretty much a limit to how much can be passed safely without risk of overheating and such?? Pardon my ignorance but I have absolutely no experience with wireless charging but will be getting a charging stand like or The Nokia DT-910 if you can't see any way it can be approved on..

    Whether it works or not varies from phone to phone. I have a couple DT-910's, and I have, or had, many phones with wireless charging. It works on the Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Nexus 6. It does not work on the Galaxy S5 or the S6 Edge. Evidently the coils do not line up.

    I would think it should work with a Lumia, but there is the possibility that the placement of the coils in the 950XL was not designed around it. Basically, just try it and see if it works. Or wait until someone else does.

    I just got my Lumia 950 XL yesterday.
    I have 4 qi wireless chargers.
    My DT-903 and MD-100W charge the 950 XL just fine.
    My DT-910 and CR-201 do NOT charge the 950 XL at all.

    My older Lumia 1520 worked on all those four chargers listed above.

    I really did not have the idea that it could not work for a new device of the same product line, and there was no word on this yet. Please also see this thread:

    My 950xl doesn't charge on the stand. It is to tall.

    The old horizontal plate has three Qi coils in it, making it easy for the receiving Qi coil in the phone to get a good "connection" even if you put the phone on the plate a bit off center. The vertical stand has only one coil since, by its design, one can't place the put the phone off center (since gravity pulls the phone down to the bottom of the stand). Thus, the design of the stand require that all phones placed on it have their receiving Qi coil at roughly the same height from the bottom of the device. The coil for the 950 XL is not at that height.

    Turning the phone to landscape works, but you have to place it very carefully to get good coil alignment. I place it with top of the volume up key just about 3/16" (4-ish mm) right of the left edge of the stand. This seems to start charging and prevents occasional disconnect/reconnect events that cause the phone to make the "I'm charging" sound.

    I have the DT-903 and it will charge the 950XL, but the Bluetooth will not pair. They do have a DT-904 for the 950XL, but the spec's seems to be the same as the DT-903. I just bought the 903 Oct. 25. I hope I don't have to buy a 904 to get the Bluetooth to work.

    I added a shim which props up the phone to charge properly in landscape

    I got the DT-910 charging and the trick, although really slow, is to have your Lumia 950XL standing sideways in a horizontal position. I think a better use of the DT-910 is as an overnight charger by my bed. I'll see how it goes tonight ;)

    There is another trick to use the 950 XL with DT-910: Build a sandwich with a DC-50! :D

    Just a shot in the dark but if the 950XL is too tall to to hit the coils rightside up have you tried setting it in upside down???

    Sure, but the coil is centered. The 1520 is even taller but has the coil at the right place.

    Yea, also had this idea. But I don't know if this is possible due to the new MIMO antennas.
