Ever since the Nexus 4 was announced, one accessory almost every owner of a Nexus 4 has wanted is wireless charging. A few wireless chargers on the market work with the Nexus 4, but Google designed this charger exclusively for the Nexus 4 and it's certainly one of the best looking wireless chargers available. It has a sleek orb-like design and is very reminiscent of Palm's Touchstone charger in the looks department. Wireless charging might not be a necessity, but once you try it, you'll never again want to plug your device into a cable to charge it up, especially when the charger props up the Nexus 4, making it extremely usable while it's resting on the charger.
Official accessories for Nexus devices have been very popular. One reason is that Google shows them off when announcing a new device but only actually makes them available months after the device is released. The Nexus 7 dock, for instance, was shown off last July but did not ship until a few weeks ago. The same holds true for the Nexus 4 Wireless Charger: it was announced in October at the Nexus 4 launch and is only now being made available for purchase.
Here's a description of the device and it's tech specs:
"Charge your Nexus 4 wirelessly with this Qi inductive charger. Its angled surface provides easy visibility of your phone while charging. This elegant device was designed specifically for your Nexus 4 -- no clunky add-ons or accessories needed."
Dimensions - 76pi x 53.05(T) (mm)
Weight - 130g
Color - Black
Charging Time - Approximately 4 hours
In the box you'll find the Nexus 4 Wireless Charger, power adapter, microUSB cable, quick start guide, and warranty card.
If you want this charger you might want to head over to the Play Store and place your order now before they sell out. They're shipping soon (less than a week according to Google).
