If you're in the market for a wireless charger, you probably haven't thought to check AT&T for deals. That's just where you can get some Qi chargers for a veritable pittance. The Nokia DT-900 is usually $50, but you can get it for quite a bit less.

If you buy 1-2 chargers, they cost $24.50 each. Not bad considering most retailers are still asking close to the regular price. It's $50 at Verizon and $40 on Amazon. AT&T will give you an even better deal on three or more chargers – $18.88 each.

The DT-900 should work with any Qi-enabled device and comes in five neat colors: red, black, blue, white, and yellow. The deal also includes free shipping.

    If you have a Nexus 4 or a new Nexus 7 and want to buy this i think you should think twice.

    This charger only outputs 750mA, making the charging process really slow, also every small movement of your phone/tablet stop the charging process, and apparently the Nexus 4 glass back makes it hard to keep in place on that charger.

      Good info - thanks!

      I have three of these and use them with my Droid Maxx and Nexus 7 and it works perfectly. It's obviously a little slower than plugging it in, but I haven't had any problems with lining it up, getting it to charge, etc. I can't speak for the Nexus 4, but it works great with the N7.

      • simp1istic

        Mine never really worked with my nexus 4. It will spin around with a breath of air and gain/lose connection all the time.

        • bL4Ck

          Some guy in the xda thread i linked used rubber bands to keep the phone in place, since you already own it you can give it a try and see if it works. Or you can put some velcro tape at the top and bottom of the charger so the phone doesn't spin.

          • Jaredsutter

            If you have to use rubber bands to hold it in place, doesn't that defeat the purpose of wireless charging?

          • youareme7

            i could imagine if you could put a rubber band on just the edge of the charger that might grip the glass. what i do with my LG charger with my N4 is just have a lint free cloth draped over the charger, doesn't slide around at all like it did by itself

          • Josh Legoza

            Rubber bands didn't work for me. I was really disappointed with purchasing that until I saw this youtube video. It works for me exactly like it does in that video now and I am happy again! If you're struggling to get it to work with your N4, this is worth a watch.

            what Steven implied I'm shocked that anybody able to make $6877 in 4 weeks on the computer. navigate to this web-site w­w­w.J­A­M­20.c­o­m

            This worked for my N4 too but it was so slow it was not worth it. It seemed that eventually it would fail out and the light on the DT would start flashing indicating an issue. I also suspect this behavior of throwing my phone into the power management wake lock that has also been reported. Not worth it for N4. Not even for $5.

            Edit: slow as in 10% or less an hour. Fails within 2 hours.

    • Gerad Munsch

      I ended up buying 2 of these to use with my Nexus 4 last time around. Great deal.

      Unfortunately, despite all the attempts at making it work (rubber bands, layers of electrical tape, jig to line up the phone *PERFECTLY*, etc.), I still couldn't get them to reliably charge my phone. Some mornings, I'd wake up and it be at ~95% (as expected), other mornings, 20-30%, and a couple of times, totally dead. The second time I woke up with a totally dead phone (mind you, it was in a custom jig, perfectly aligned, with 8 layers of electrical tape on the DT-900 to perfectly align the field to the N4's coils), I returned them, and bought an WCP-400 "puck" from VZW for $40.

      I wish I could've bought 2 (or 3 or 4 or 5, they're just so damn convenient), but I didn't have the money. I'll have to watch for VZW accessory sales.

      tl;dr -- Nexus 4 users, don't buy this!

  • jpelgrom

    Why would you want to order THREE wireless chargers?!

    • Cory_S

      I have one on my night stand, one on my wifes night stand, one at my office, and one at my wife's office.

      • Perv Bear

        Forgot mistresses nightstand.

        • Cory_S

          She shares an office with my wife so they just share.

      • MrMLK

        Exactly. One on my work desk, one in my home office, and a third one for travel, since it only added $9 to the cost.

    • iandouglas

      night table, home office, work office. Even with Colorado and their silly online tax laws, I still got all three for under $20/ea

      I got 3 Samsung ones for the same price when they were on sale - definitely lots of places one could utilize them around the house and work.

      Keep trying, bud.

    Can you buy JUST the wireless charging backplate for the S4? I'd like one of these for my 2013 N7, but if I can buy just that backplate I'll get 3 and give my wife 1 for her S4

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Yes, you can. In fact, I don't remember seeing them as a bundle.

      Just make sure she doesn't have the S4 Active, which doesn't have one yet, at least officially.

  • Alain Lafond

    Interesting... You can find lotsa language on ATT's site... But no french...

  • youareme7

    awesome! here's hoping the upcoming nexus phone also has Qi, would hate to have all these Qi chargers for just my tablet

  • Greg

  • Mystery Man
