    Yeah, I read about that earlier.

    But, $80 bucks just for wireless charging?

    How does it work with just the $40 skin?

    I don't think it would if you had just the skin. If you just had the skin, you'll still have to have a pad to place it on to charge. $80 for wireless charging is quite abit i agree, and the case is skin/case is abit ugly due to the bottom part.

    $80 is alot, but if you lose the USB cord and adapter that came with the iPhone, it would cost $50 to replace it.

    You can get generic ones from monoprice.com that work fine for $3.

    The cord is $20.

    Another problem with this thing is that I can almost guarantee that it would take twice as long to charge your phone too.

    Yes, the wall plug adapter is $30 + $20 for the cord = $50.00

    Or, like I said you can get a generic charger for the iPhone for like $3. The wild charger is nothing but a higher end generic charger that has the gimmick of not having to plug the phone in.

    I don't really see the advantage of these past the cool factor. How is it more work to plug the phone in, than to place it on top of the plugged in base station? Now, if this were true wireless charging and it were like a WiFi base station where all you needed to be is in range of it, that would be useful.
