    Just letting people know that you can get a touchstone dock without usb cable or outlet plug (but most of us have extras lying around) for about $6 shipped on Amazon. Another user said these work with the 920 so this would be great option. I am considering buying a few and then selling the 920 charging pad (when it comes) on ebay or craigslist.

    If it uses IQ standard it will work with Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. Does it?
    That's indeed quite cheap.

    This is not an off the shelf option. The touchstone for phones used magnets to hold the phones to the touchstone. So the slope of them doesn't really work at all. It's a fragile connection at best.

    I did on a lark put it on my touchpad (tablet) touchstone and it works there too, but isn't too flexible in position. That might be the easier donor to making a better fitting one if you have the tools and skills to make something.

    It does not use Qi but it does work with the wireless charge inductive coil in 920 and 820.

    Don't be obtuse... It does. I put it on both my phone and tablet touchstones and it could charge from both. Like I said earlier it doesn't sit well, but if you want to be a jerk about it I'll make a video to show it does.

    I like being a jerk. :D Anyhow, I did get it to work on my Touchstone upside down. ;)

    it works pretty well for me if i put my touchstone tablet stand flat on a table and put the phone on the top half. the stand lies completely flat when it's folded, which is nice

    Does it actually charge? Rich Dunbar updated his YouTube vid comments and said that it doesn't.

    It worked with my Touchpad Touchstone base upside down but I don't know enough about the standards and their differences to trust charging my phone that way.

    i took a look at the battery %, it doesn't actually charge, just triggers the "now charging" signal

    This is what you should be buying:

    Amazon.com: Energizer Qi-Enabled 3 Position Inductive Charger (Black): Cell Phones & Accessories

    maybe not as pretty as the Nokia one, but you can charge 3 devices at a time.

    Dang, yeah I didn't keep it on there for long so I didn't notice it wasn't actually charging it. Left it on for an hour and nothing. Bummer... the Qi standard must do some sort of "handshake" to actually tell the charger to send the current.

    Damn, the prices went up on those even on eBay. I got 2 of them off eBay for $20 a piece shipped.

    Did some research and the LG WCP-700 is Qi compatible and doesn't look like junk. Same price as the energizer single one, but not ugly.

    I don't know, if I'm going to spend $50 anyway, I'd rather just get the Nokia one.

    About 2 months ago, wmpoweruser ran an article on various Qi wireless chargers:

    I'm personally digging the LG WCD-800 but can't seem to find a place that sells them.

    Yeah, at $10 cheaper it's not a huge deal. Some may like it aesthetically more. I personally think it looks better.

    Primarily it might be more available until the nokia plates get into distribution more.

    When I tried on my touchstone charger I didn't even get the charging icon, but I did hear a weird...electric? sound. Sort of like static electricity. Any idea if using these chargers can actually do any harm?

    Slightly off topic, but when the qi charging was first announced, i took a risk, and brought a cheap Maxell QI charger off ebay.

    Since then the 920 & Galaxy S3 have come out with QI charging, and the prices have gone throught the roof. Wish i'd risked it and brought a few, as it works perfectly with my 920.
