I just found it brilliant that you actually tried to charge it through a PAN! I saw you put it in and started going "Oh god..."

No, it was when I was editing that I first noticed that the little light was flashing, indicating that it was not going to work. I added an extra flash because I wanted people to notice it without arrows or anything like that.
Glad you liked it, check back soon because Im editing a little matchup between the L920 and the iP4 to se witch battery is "best".

This would be perfect entry for wireless charging into general acceptance. Most surfaces (desks, tables) could be wired up for this and at the airport it would be wonderful to not have to wing out your charger cable and hunt for a port! No fears of having the chargers stolen either.
Since it Qi is essentially slow-charging, does it damage your battery if you keep charging it constantly?

There are two factors that affect wireless charging. Distance and material.
As long as the distance isn't too far, it will charge. However, the farther away it is, the less power it receives. Even though cases still allow wireless charging, they will increase the amount of time it takes to charge.
The only other factor that needs to be considered is the material. Wireless charging works via magnetic induction (magnets). Very few things affect magnetism so this is why it's so affective. However, the most obvious materials that do affect magnetism are metals, which should explain why that metal pot had different results than the other tests.
Hope this helps to answer any uncertainties =P

Double chargers that can charge multiple devices have a specific coil for each device. So a charger that can charge 2 phones has two coils and cannot charge anything more than 2 at a time.
Hope this helps!

I have a TPU case for my 820, and a Nokia wireless charging pad. I realize that when I charge with the case on, my phone gets hot, the kind of hot that you can't touch it. And the charge doesn't seem to be staying. Immediately removed the case upon realizing what's causing the heat. No problems since then.
