    Does anyone here use any third party Qi chargers on their Lumia? I'd like to get a Nokia branded one because I heard it actually charges the Lumia faster than third party ones. However, I've had my eye on a couple third party chargers that are much cheaper than the Nokia branded ones. Does anyone have advice?

    I use a Nokia, an energizer and a cheap Chinese one that I cut up and added to my car cradle.
    The Nokia may charge faster than the energizer but not buy much.
    The cheapo does charge a little slower than both and gets a little warmer doing so. But all 3 work with no issues

    Hmm, I'll probably end up getting the Nokia one anyway. Thanks for your input

    hey, I got a cheap Chinese one as well from ebay. Would you mind explaining how you cut it up and added it to your cradle? That is a great idea I'd like to try as well.

    Im using a cheap chinese Qi puck, 4€ with shipping, the Nokia DT-910, 60€ plus shipping and the CR-201, 75€ plus shipping. The Nokia ones do seem to charge faster and they have very good quality & NFC in them but if you look at the price difference for me... yeah...

    I simply separated the halves, kept the piece which holds the USB power, but cut it down to fit in my holder, USB down. On mine I had to flip the coil to face the right direction, but I did not alter any electrical.
    Secured it to the inside of the cradle, I did have to use 2 pieces of the cut up plastic to extend the bottom feet of the cradle to support the phone. My side arms were plenty long enough.
    Plug it in and I have qi in the truck. Probably took me about 5 minutes.
