Nexus wireless charger appears in Google Play

One of the best features that no one ever talks about in Nexus devices is the built-in Qi induction charging capabilities of the Google devices. Google has just released it's own Nexus-branded wireless charging station in the Play Store in the US and Canada, with a ''coming soon'' message currently appearing in the UK and elsewhere.

The Nexus devices although fifty bucks is a little steep.

The Nexus wireless charger is compatible with the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the 2013 versions of the Nexus 7. The older Nexus 7's and Nexus 10 do not support Qi.

  • Will other devices that support wireless charging be able to use this.


    • I'm gonna say yes, @Andy. Basically Qi works by using a coil in the charger to transfer current to a coil in the device, so the basic principle is applicable to any device. I think Google's branding of it as a Nexus charger is simply because they produce Nexus devices. But then again, Samsung have the accessory identification chip that I believe includes chargers, so you never know...


  • I hope I won't have to remove my Moko 'cover' to use it...
