nexus 4 charging orb

The Nexus 4 wireless charging orb appeared on the Google Play Store Monday afternoon  for $59.99. At the time of writing, the charging orb is only available in the US. In other countries the charging orb is labeled as “not available for sale at this time”.

The Nexus 4 charging orb’s appearance is very good timing considering that Nexus 4 devices just recently became available in the Google Play Store again after issues with keeping up with the demand. There’s no doubt that the charging orb will sell out just as fast though. It may be wise to head on over to the Google Play Store and grab one before they’re out since everyone and their uncle will be trying to snag one!

It’s taken LG and Google quite some time to make the charging orb available to the public. In reality, it should have been available soon after the Nexus 4’s launch, but who’s complaining? Will you be snagging yourself a Nexus 4 charging orb or even a Nexus 4 now that consumers can easily get one?

  • This may be a stupid question but would this charger work with say other Android Phones that are capable of wireless charging?

      As long as they support the Qi wireless charging standard, yes. One device that I know works with this is the Droid DNA (or Butterfly, depending on location).

      • That’s funny that you mention the DNA because that is the phone I have and want to begin wireless charging! Thanks!

    $70 after taxes and shipping. If anybody was wondering. I live in CA.

  • lol, sorry google, but for what wireless charging currently is, that is a rip off

    Still not sold out. I think $70 is a little to high for most people. It is just a phone charger at the end of the day. Coolest one ever! But just a charger none the less.
