    Ordered the L635 today for AT&T. I enjoy wireless charging and was thinking of purchasing the following third party QI Module to the phone: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G4674SU/ref=s9_simh_gw_p107_d0_i7?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0061J669JR4ZVEA0PMJ2&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846

    Has anyone ever used one of these? This one is 750mA output where I have seen others that are 500mA -- does anyone know how many mA the standard Nokia QI Charging plates are?

    TIA

    I bought something like that for my ATIV S, spec was also 750mA, but in practice the phone itself restricts the charging current to 500mA, like when you connect it to a PC. No problem for me, I charge it at night, and a low charging current keeps the temperature low. When I use the original power adapter and cable it charges at 900mA, so it is possible to charge faster, but then you probably need to connect more pins of the u-usb.

    I assume this runs out to the exterior of the phone and then into the USB charging port, thus charging the battery.

    They can be on the exterior side of the housing but can also reside in the case.

    I just ordered a this QI Charger from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HI8JYFE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It should be here on Thursday.

    It appears the replacement shells from Nokia have a curved edge and rounded back where as the stock Matte shells that ship with the phone are more flat. I figure if I remove the foam bumpers that are in the case the QI Charger will fit on the inside. May have to mod the usb opening to be a little larger on the shell but if all works as planned, I will have QI Charging.

    I will keep you posted..

    Unfortuately it didn't have enough juice to charge the battery. Need to find one that supplies more power..

    I'd say 1 Amp is the recommended floor although higher is better.

    I would think 750 and 500 would suffice, just not be very fast.

    When I plugged it in, I received a message saying it was charging too low and no charger icon.

    I have since returned the phone and changed providers to Verizon...so, sorry I cannot be more help moving forward.
