This is quite inexpensive for one of these. The only hesitation I have is the description which states Input:5V, 2A 2. Output:5V, 1A, which would make it wildly inefficient. The discount runs for the next 14.5 hours.

They're pretty much all the same output, at least the ones that I've researched.

Wonder if these have any reviews.

It's $70 for an official Google wireless charger, shipped - this is cheap enough I'd be willing to take a chance that it's complete garbage.

You also have to supply your own charger. I couldn't find any reviews.

Any reviews? Does it work properly for Nexus 5?

I was hoping it was at least a Metrans one. Those rectangular Qi chargers are usually always around that price range.

Want to see they ones that can charge multiple devices at the same time, the single ones only save you a bit time to plug and unplug, for me to reduce numbers of usb ports and troublesome wires are more important

Too bad for my S4 you still need a charging receiver (another ~$10) that adds some bulk to your phone. These things should be built-in from the factory.

I've had issues with this type of Qi charger design. Sure it charges my Nexus 5 and 7 but bloody hell, it takes a while to get the positioning right. It would also stop charging in the middle of the night. Might have gotten a bad unit. To the garbage it went.

I've settled with one of these hockey puck designs. No hassles with the positioning. Also makes a beep to notify you that it has been properly positioned and charging.

Still no dedicated power adapter but I have mine plugged into my UPS via USB.

Edit: Also had no issues charging devices in their respective cases (Poetic on the 7, diztronic on the 5). No luck with the one posted by OP. Would not charge at all.
