Verizon Stores Have Samsung Galaxy S4 Wireless Charging Covers in Stock

Screen Shot 2013-06-16 at 10.00.44 AM

Just over a week ago, Samsung announced that they had made their own wireless charging cover and charging pad for the Galaxy S4 available through their online accessory shop. It has since sold out a couple of times, even with the bundle running $90. If you have yet to pick one up and have been on the lookout, think about stopping into your local Verizon store. As you can see from the picture above, stores are starting to carry the black version equipped with Verizon and 4G LTE branding.

The cover by itself runs $39.99, just as it does through Samsung’s shop. We’ve also been told that if your store doesn’t have them in stock, that they can be ordered over the phone. For whatever reason, they are not currently available through Verizon’s site, though we would assume that they will be before long.

Or you could swing into theĀ the online DL store, which apparently still has the bundle.

    can someone post the link where to register my product?

    The other thing I should note that I really like about this cover is that it slightly recesses the camera area. I run caseless, so I was worried about scratching the camera lens area while resting on a surface with it protruding how it does with the stock back.

    I picked mine up Saturday and have to say, it charges FAST, way faster than USB. It adds considerable weight to the phone, which I was a bit surprised about. Before, the S4 felt feather-light. I’d almost wager it feels “twice” as heavy. I had a DNA before this, and it charged SLOW.

    BTW lumia 920 and lumia 820 has wireless charging built in. No need of any extra case.

    why would anyone buy this when you can get the receiver off of Amazon or eBay and keep the oem back cover with no added thickness???

    • Humberto

      because those ebay chargers and amazon chargers do no support Qi standards… Qi is the new way of wireless charging…

      • IDLE0095

        Those on ebay and amazon are QI standard

      Because apparently the receivers dont work so well and are finicky. This guys tried a bunch of options and found the samsung back cover to be the best: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=41500746

    I still just don’t get the allure of wireless charging. Plugging in my phone just isn’t that tough.

    I registered my new S4 and used the 50% coupon on the extra battery/charger then I saw this and I registered my old note 2 and got a second coupon which I hope to use on the wireless cover and charger, once they are back in stock. Power for days. Lol How sweet it is.

    Does anyone know of a case that is compatible with the wireless charging back

    • Humberto

      if you know of any, let me know i am on the hunt for a bumper =)

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Can this be used with any charging pad? Like the Nokia ones?

    • zepfloyd

      yes, any Qi charger.

    Samsung has unbranded covers on their site for the same price and if you register your Galaxy S4 with them you get a 50% off code on accessories under 50 bucks which brings the total to around 25 bucks after shipping. IMHO I would easily pay double the same cover without that ugly branding double, which makes this deal even sweeter.

      Happen to have a link? I found this one but, it doesn’t mention our model (Verizon) as compatible.

        That link is correct. All standard battery covers are the same.

        • mjmedstarved

          Many thanks.

      I did this exact same thing last Friday. Used my code and ordered the white charging cover for around $25. It hasn’t shipped yet though.

  • ROB

    You would think that for the amount they are charging this would have been included..

    • Tyler Durden

      Yeah because Verizon is just that generous. /s

      • Anon

        Not Verizon. Samsung.

        You’d think this would be part of a stock Galaxy S4, regardless of carrier. Instead, just one more accessory for a good, but expensive phone.
