If you’ve been waiting for the wireless charging orb for the Nexus 4 to hit the Google Play Store, today is your lucky day. El Goog has finally listed the accessory in the Google Play Store, and you can walk away with it for just $60. With it, you’ll be able to prop your Nexus 4 up in horizontal or vertical orientation and have your device charge just as effectively as it would via USB.
There’s not much else to the thing aside from its ability to charge your phone and make it look good at the same time, but the convenience of being able to plop your phone down without having to fiddle around with flimsy USB connections is a treat.
You’ll be getting a nice charging flow of 5 volts and 1 amp, enough to get you from 0% to 100% in just about four hours — hey, no one ever said it was the most efficient charger ever. The device ships in less than one week so get over to the Play Store and order one before we end up with the reincarnation of the Nexus 4 debacle.
