lol at the multiple charges quote. This thing would struggle to give you one full charge.

Here's the link to the Galaxy S7, but the battery is 2700mAh. It's not a great size, it's still worth $19.99

It seems there're quite a lot different views about this product, wait to see.

Most people didn't realize what it WAS, and it adds a decent heft to the phone. I have similar packs for the Sony Xperia Z Ultra -- the phone doesn't fit in your pocket after you add it.

It uses Qi to power the phone, which is a cool feature -- but you still have to use a cable to pass-through or charge the device with the back installed.

For $20 it is 4 stars, for $90 it is more like 2.

I agree it adds heft to the phone but just FYI -- the S7 already supports wireless charging with the "standard" battery.  This one is an additional "extended" battery that kicks in when the internal one is depleted.

Do these also get charged wirelessly, but won't charge the phone at the same time? So pop this on a wireless charger and plug your phone in at night? Or can you throw the whole thing on a wireless charger

No, it uses QI to provide power to your handset (it has a QI transmitter and the handset has a built-in receiver) -- But the base does not have a QI receiver itself, most likely because it would be impossible to charge both the battery and run your phone at the same time within the power that QI can transmit.  

So if you plug it in then it will both charge and power up the QI transmitter which will only draw power if it detects a device.
