If you already have a Qi-compatible charging pad, you're in luck as Samsung has made use of the Qi standard and is selling the cover and pad separately. The cover can be had for $39.99 and the pad can be had for $49.99. If you need both, it will set you back $90.

It's good that Samsung made use of the Qi standard as multiple other devices already make use of it. It makes that investment for the charging pad just a bit easier to swallow.
