    Grabbed this one off Amazon and it works great. It's a flat design with 3 coils, so no issues with correct positioning and has been working flawlessly for a few days now.

    Anyone know if the Tylt Wireless Charging Car Mount works? My Nokia one doesn't line up with the 950 XL.

    Yes, got the red one the other day on their Cyber Monday special for $40. Awesome packaging. Works fantastic! Looks better than the Nokia.

    Seems like the Spigen is just another variant of the Tylt.
    You sure it does not do the restart thing after phone is charged??
    I haven't noticed mine doing that.

    I was trying to get one of the 3-coil QI wireless charger from amazon, but a lot of the reviews say that they don't last. Would it be best to wait for a genuine Lumia charger for the 950xl?

    So after a week or so of using the cheap $10 hockey puck Qi charger from amazon... I can say... It works GREAT!
    Charges at a decent speed and it keeps it at 100% when it gets there.
    I'm going to buy a couple more of these and try to outfit them in tables and stuff. :)

    i have been using the Nokia Portable Wireless Charging Plate DC-50 that is still available direct from microsoft online store (in the US) for 29.99 with the 950XL dual sim and a wallet case that i bought from Amazon - had a coupon that reduced it to 5 dollars... its a little big but it does provide all round protection and its quite thick on the back side and still charges wirelessly...

    I have also ordered the iOttie car mount Qi charger - have yet to try that as its sitting in my mailbox.. will comment back about that once i know if it works or not...

    I bought the DC-50 a week ago and don't seem to have any success with it. I'm using it plugged into the wall. The charger and phone both get ridiculously hot. Then, the indicator light on the charger flashes and the lock screen switches on about once every 30 seconds, which I presume is from the heat. If I manually manage the situation and let them cool off, it will take about 4 hours to go from 20% to fully charger. But, that's no way to charge a phone. I've tried a number of different placements on the pad and haven't noticed any real differences.

    Any suggestions before I return the charging pad?

    A Samsung charger that I got for the Galaxy S4 that I no longer use will charge both my old 930 (the S4's replacement) and the new 950XL. The XL is a little long for the soapdish-style cradle, but if you let the foot of the phone ride on the raised edge of the cradle and push the top edge up against the slope at the other end, it charges just fine. The shock-absorbing cases on both phones don't push them off far enough to affect charging.

    I ordered this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...pUvbUpU3340388 the other day. It's absolutely perfect. Cycles the device properly, charges it fully and isn't fussy about placement. And best of all, it's SUPER nice!

    Measured a 950 XL full charge on DT-900 today: 3:30 hr. 38c temperature max. Perfect alignment plate / phone.

    Tmr I will be getting the EasyCHEE T900 and EasyCHEE T300 chargers which have 3 coils. Will measure charing time too.

    I'm using the First2savvv WXC-SCC-01 I got on Amazon it looks very similar to the DT-910 but it works fine with the 950XL in portrait and landscape mode.

    Having boxed up my Lumia 930 to sell i no longer have the small puck style nokia qi charger that worked great with it, so started to use the DC-50 i got as a freebie.

    Nope. Woke me twice through the night lighting up and making a noise and when i checked in the am, it said too many failed log ins. Not sure if it is bad placement or the fact that it charges it fully then discharges. Think the fact it is also charging itself to be used as a portable device makes it not a great match for nightly use.

    Snagged a Nokia DT-900 on amazon uk for 12, will be trying this tonight. Hope it is triple coil as it looks like placement is pretty important for this phone. Never had any problems with my Lumia 930, be gutted if i can't get reliable wireless charging!!

    Update on my new EasyCHEE T900 and EasyCHEE T300 QI chargers for the Lumia 950 XL. The T900 is the stand version.

    • Great build quality
    • 3 coils = placement not an issue
    • T900 comes with power supply but that one becomes 54C hot + electronic noise => tried my Anker 20W charger => 38C and no noise
    • Maximum temperature between phone and charging plate is 38C
    • Charing works well: 3 hrs from 0-100%
    • No charge disruptions / disconnect
    • Fit is perfect for the Lumia 950 XL and it's camera on top
    • Especially the stand version is an awesome replacement for my DT-910
    • Tickle charge works fine after charged a 100%
    • LEDs very nice as not too bright and not too dark


    Here is there interesting part: I am using a USB voltmeter. At one point the phone said it's a 100% charged but the charger was still drawing 1.6 ampere. Then it (ampere) slowly decreased and ended up with tickle charging. It charged for another 45 minutes after OS said 100% full.

    Means: Even though I calibrated the battery by full charge, full depletion it still doesn't show the charge status correctly.

    Basically all QI chargers wiill work as long as the coils will align well and there isnt too much distance between charging plate and back of the phone (no case).

    follow up on the iOttie car mount Qi charger i had purchased from Amazon..
    either i got a bad unit or the coils dont line up... i couldnt get the 950XL to charge in any orientation.
    Will be returning this and falling back to plugging in the USB-C cable until i find another suitable Qi charger

    I got 2 of these: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00O...droidcent08-20 and they work like champs so far. As long as you use a 2+ amps charger with Qi chargers you're fine. Don't even think of using a lower amp psu for it.

    Yes these are good - same manufacturer as mine (EasyCHEE T900 and EasyCHEE T300 QI).

    You should indeed use at least 1.5A USB charger. I am measuring 5.02v and 1.40a when charing my Lumia 950 XL. In the beginning of the charge it goes to 1.7a.

    But the QI standard can only transfer 5 watts + lost energy = 7 watt (which is what I measure).

    Take it the old ipad chargers are ok - the large plug version with usb socket? - what i've always used with my L930. Have to check what output is written on it tonight. Though assume the soon to arrive DT-900 has a plug.

    If that is the white amazon one then it comes with a dedicated charger. Thanks for the heads up yesterday 12 is a bargain and it even 'goes' with my white 950 xl

    Bummer, I bought one of those as well during a sale. Have not been able to try it out yet, but sounds like it is back to the drawing board for a car mount. Let me know if you find one that works.
