    Got my Lumia 930 but find the included wireless charger a little fiddly. Despite following the instructions it seems to take AGES to charge, is this normal? Seems much quick to use a wall charger. Also what is the best direction or position to place the phone on the wireless charger?

    Well sticking it right and center on the pad should be all you need to do.

    By nature, wireless charging is slower than wired charging to at least some degree. I don't know if your perception of AGES is the same as mine, but its just fine for me (I use a normal Nokia pad with my 920)

    Speed - wired
    convenience - wireless

    I agree with this. Wireless charging cannot deliver the same amount of current that cables can (for now), so it will be slower to charge. It may be convenient to use it since you can place it on the charger and pick it up anytime, but don't expect it to charge as fast as you can on a conventional wired charger.

    On this subject, has anyone tried the rechargeable wireless charger that comes in the 930 Microsoft bundle?
    I checked the specs and it's storage is 2400mah, same as the phone. However when fully charged and unplugged I will barely get my phone up to 60% from 3% before the charger runs out of charge.
    Is this indicative of the wireless charging system?

    2400mAh only suffice if wireless charging would be perfect without any energy loss. Unfortunately, you lose energy due to heating and coupling issues when charging wirelessly

    The fatboy charger (as well as the one in the wireless bundle, they're the same) have a max output of 0,75A, the USB charger 1,5A. The energy loss should be slightly higher on the wireless ones, so at least for the first 80% of the charge, the wireless one isn't even half as fast. For the last 10-20%, the voltage is constant and the current isn't the "culprit" anymore, so no more differences. If you're interested in that, LiPo batteries use the CC/CV technique (Constant Current, Constant Voltage) for charging. Still it's convenient ;D

    That portable wireless charger is a bit lame. It gets my phone to 66% and that's it.

    I have never charged my 930 with a wire. It's just so convenient to put it on the charging plate (DT900) and pick it up when I wake up. When I've checked my phone for whatever reason after having it on the charger, I havnt noticed it be any special level hot, I'd expect it to get warm even on a cable.

    But as said, I charge overnight, so as long as it won't take me 8 hours to charge it, it's good enough for me :D
