    By the way it uses electricity to charge.

    I hate to ask but what is "qi"? I knew about a qi bird once. It lived in the Arctic and had no feathers so it was blue (with cold). It's cry was "Ah Qi! Ah Qi! Ah Qi-riest it's cold!"

    The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb is a qi compatible charger that wirelessly charges the Nexus 4 and keeps the device in landscape or portrait mode.

    Thanks. I will tell the Qi bird. I don't understand the advantage of a wireless charger when the device is just as captive to it as it would be to a wired connection. And I would guess the charge time is longer?

    I am not aware that connector failures are major problem (at least in the IOS world).

    While they are surprisingly reliable, those little micro-USB power & data connectors are still fragile, and very prone to acquiring foreign material which is then jammed hopelessly deep into the connector when the plug is inserted.

    Someone - might have been enerd, or josh - once remarked that of the two defacto low-voltage power standards (12V auto lighter well & 5V USB) neither were ever intended for such a purpose.

    This is what we get, when the frakking manufacturers can't agree on a simple little plug, and try to force a bazillion different proprietary and often shittly little connectors on us. Eventually, driven by consumer irritation, some other segment(s) of the market just did it their own way.

    Well, guess where the Qi gadget has to get its power from? If it isn't mains?

    Yup. I suppose if you fry them or boil them, they don't do too well. I bet Qi thinggies have failures too.

    Try a sewing needle. I just resurrected a perfectly good Xperia Arc that way....of course I didn't try this until I used the later failure as justification for buying a Note 2.

    But I agree industry approach to connectors is very often ass.
