Being able to wirelessly charge a smartphone is something you really can’t appreciate until you have gone through a couple of phones that are capable of accomplishing the task. Sure, you still need a wire and a charging pad, but the convenience of not having to plug in your phone at any time is an item I’m starting to categorize as one that I can’t live without. Especially with the introduction of new cables like USB 3.0 and Google turning ports upside down on the regular, plugging in cables has become a nuisance.
If you own a Galaxy Note 3, your wireless charging situation became slightly more robust this week with the introduction of the wireless charging S-View Flip Cover. As the name suggests, you are looking at a combo cover that merges a Note 3 wireless charging rear cover with an S-View Flip Cover. So you get all of the window-esque benefits that the Flip Cover provides, with the option to drop your phone on a wireless charging pad and have it do work.
So you are aware, this wireless charging cover runs $69.99, which doesn’t include a charging pad. Pads can be found all over this fine Earth at places like Amazon for pretty reasonable prices, some of which fall below the $30 mark. In the end though, you are looking at a $100 investment to be able to wirelessly charge your phone. Keep in mind that a Qi-certified charger should last you for some time, so it may be worth it in the end.
The cover is available in both black and white.
