Qi charger works upright or lying flat

ADATA has announced a new wireless charging product that the company says is a breakthrough in inductive charging. The device supports the Qi wireless charging speculation and is called the Elite CE700 Wireless Charging Stand. The device is able to charge smartphones that support Qi from the factory or with an accessory case supporting the wireless charging standard.
With a compatible phone, all the user has to do is set the phone on the charge plate to get power. The CE700 has a textured rubber base to prevent the phone form slipping and an aluminum back cover. The design allows the charger to be used when lying flat or sitting upright.

The CE700 is designed to enter power saving mode when not in use. The upright mode of the stand also allows the use of the smartphone while it charges. The charger also has an LED charge indicator that tells you when it is charging and when there is a problem.
The CE700 is available for order for $49.99.

Could someone make an affordable QI charging car mount? I am not about to spend $100 for Nokia's mount which ironically does not even work with all of Nokia's own Qi enabled devices. I am sure I could manage to make one myself, but I would prefer a more elegant solution in the sub $75 range.

Wireless charging is the best thing since sliced bread... but if it remains so expensive then it is never going to get anywhere.

I personally love me current (pun intended) qi charger! I use it at my desk at work where I'm moving around and it keeps me from messing up the USB area on the bottom constantly plugging/unplugging it. It charges just as good or better as when its plugged into the computer USB.

My only question is this the latest spec qi where it can have a notepad between the base and phone and it will still charge?

Most of the Nokia desk chargers are powerful enough to charge the L920 even when the charger is burred beneath a coffee table. Not sure if that helps you any, but it should be powerful enough to charge a device through a pad of paper.

Wireless charging is overly priced

Wireless charging is not meant for users of $50 phones (not sure where you would get a $50 smartphone, unless you are talking contract, and then you are spending more like $450), it is meant for people that want high end devices. Usually the only phones that have the wireless charging built in are the highest end. Some of the high end (at least price wise) (apple)do not even offer it without an external charger.

My phone (LG G2) had the wireless charging built in, and while I thought it was a gimick before I tried it, I grabbed one for my car, and it awesome. While it does slide around if I corner or break hard, it is so nice to get in my car, and just drop my phone in the cubby hole at the front. No wires due to wireless charging, and BT connect to the stereo for Pandora.
