    I am trying to decide between getting the wireless charging plate vs. the fatboy charging pillow for the Nokia Lumia 822. Any thoughts?

    The pillow may collect dust with time, the plate is robust :).
    I would rather buy a pillow for myself and a plate for the phone.

    The fatboy is just a charging plate inside a padded sleeve.

    If you've got the money, go for the pillow. If you ever get bored of the pillow, just remove the charging plate from the inside, and you've got yourself a normal, plain charging plate :)

    ^^^Pretty much this, only catch is you probably wont get a choice of the plate color if you go with the Fatboy.

    Originally, I wanted to get the Fatboy pillow, but then I changed my mind and got a charging plate. The plate works just fine, and it's a bit cheaper, so that's my recommendation between the two.

    There have been a couple of sales on the charging plates where they were much cheaper than the pillow. I would keep my eye out for one and pounce. I've got 3 plates now, and they are super convenient. I like the convenience of wireless charging so much don't think I'll buy another phone that doesn't come with that feature.

    I've got a pillow, but only paid $40 for it. No way would I pay more than what I paid. I've been thinking of getting 2 more charging plates that are on sale right now. 1 for the office and 1 placed in the living room.

    I bought a cyan fatboy for my 928 from ATT since they had the cheapest price. $55 so it's $5 above the normal price of a plate. I also picked up one of the plates on sale for $25 to stick in my laptop bag. Also, the plate inside of my pillow matches the cover.

    The pillow and plate use the same charging device; with the pillow, it is just stuck inside the sleeve of the pillow.

    That being said, I've used both and I feel the pillow is better because it gives you more surface area to toss the phone on. With the plate, you have to carefully place the phone on it or it will fall off. The pillow gives you more surface area which makes it perfect for a bedside or anyplace else that you may want a bigger pad to place your phone on. The pillow also rattles less when the phone is on vibrate.

    You can always design a Wireless charging pillow !!!
    here's how I did it.
    just buy a baby pillow.
    use a needle to create recessed phone shaped thread in the pillow
    inside right under that shape place your wireless charging plate
    try to use a thread to hold that plate good
    congrats you wasted a baby pillow , threads , time , unless you've done a good job .... (then you got a BABY boy wireless charging pillow.
