Nexus 5 Does Work with the Nexus Wireless Charging Orb, But That Shouldn't Be A Huge Surprise

Similar to the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2013) the new Nexus 5 is also featuring wireless charging. Which a lot of people dismissed as a feature that we don't need. While it may seem like something that's not a huge deal, once you use wireless charging, you can never go back. Trust me I know from my experience with the Nexus 4. In the past year, I've reviewed two different wireless chargers, and I was pretty impressed with both. I can't confirm if those are compatible with the Nexus 5, but I don't see why they wouldn't be. Especially since they are Qi compatible wireless chargers and the Nexus 5 is a Qi compatible device, just like the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4.

This evening, Phone Arena can confirm that the Nexus 5 is compatible with the Wireless Charging Orb which Google Play was selling up until a few weeks ago for about $60. So it's good to know you didn't spend $60 on a charger that only works with the Nexus 4. Hopefully the Wireless Charging Orb goes back on the Play Store for sale for the Nexus 5, as it's a really nice wireless charger that seems to work pretty well.

Hopefully, the Nexus 5 doesn't slide off of the Wireless Charging Orb as the Nexus 4 did. Which it might not because the Nexus 4 had a glass back while the Nexus 5 does not. The Nexus 5 actually has a nice plastic back that's very similar to the Nexus 7, which I haven't heard any issues about the Nexus 7 sliding off of the wireless charging orb.

So is there really any news here? Not really. But this is something I've been hearing from a lot of people. Asking if the Nexus 5 worked with the wireless charging orb. So hopefully this answers some of our readers questions. If you have any others, leave a comment below and we'll try and answer it for you.
