    What's the difference is charging rate???? I'm sure the regular wall charger charges faster, but how much faster?

    Anyone get a chance to test it?

    Also... how safe is it to have the phone charging with the regular charge and the charging pad at the same time?

    I don't know if you'll get many/any answers to this very soon. I don't believe the wireless charging pads have really been delivered yet (although I heard that maybe a few people received theirs today).

    I got mine today. I haven't tried dual charging. Been taking it on and off all day to top it off. So not entirely sure how much quicker it is.

    I can't say with certainty, but I noticed it took the better part of an afternoon from dead to 80% on the charging pad.

    Figured it would. My battery was/is pretty low, so I didn't even both using it as I'm going out soon.

    Don't really know how fast it charges wirelessly, but it's pretty fast. I have no complaints about its speed.

    Try dual-charging? Does it even charge when using both methods?

    I don't want my phone to explode. :)

    I will time the wireless charging speed tonight. Right now my phone just hit 100% so I gotta drain it down.

    Update: Started charging at 50%. 26 min later the phone charged 16%.

    So, if the charging rate stays constant, it would take about 3 hours for a full charge.

    I used the wireless charger and my device charged up fully from around 30%-40% up to 100% within 2 hours.

    From turn-itself-off-dead to 100% took about 2.5-3 hours for me on the wireless charger with a case on the phone.

    I've been charging my device with the plate, exclusively. I may eventually start using the charger again though.

    I certainly wouldn't recommend dual charging. Surely the battery will be designed to charge via wireless or USB, not both. You'll just cook that battery doing both at the same time.

    I think I've already done so without dual charging. My battery will not last even with no usage!

    I'm gonna remove WhatsApp. Hopefully, it improves then.

    Does your guys' status light turn off on the pad when the phone is fully charged? The light on my stand doesn't seem to turn off, even though the manual states that it should.

    Edit: Seems to be working finally.

    What's your signal strength like in your area? If the phone is constantly at low signal strength, and this goes for any phone, it drains the battery faster. Also, if your not connected to WiFi turn that off so its not constantly searching.

    Wireless charger seems fast enought for me, but I have no scientific data :)
    I got 2 of them, keep one on my office desk, one by the bed. My Lumia is always around 75-100 battery percentage.

    Yup... definitely know that and that is why I know it has to be an app or the battery itself.

    In all actuality, I've had better reception now that my battery is draining. I have been on vacation most of the time with the 920 (when I had good battery life) and at home, my reception is bad. Whereas now I have bad battery life off of vacation, out of my house, where I have 4-5 bars of LTE.

    Someone from Nokia said, that wireless charger delivers 85% of wall chargers power. It was unclear to me, that did he meant that it has 85% efficiency or what..

    I assume that in the same time it takes the wall charger to get to 100%, the charging pad would get it to 85%.
