    Want to learn more about wireless charging? Check out the video above that highlights five of the best wireless charging systems for Android phones like the Galaxy S5.

    This Samsung wireless charging accessory isn’t exactly a battery case, but rather a cover that allows you to use Qi wireless charging to power up your S5. The Samsung-produced back cover slides in place easily, and allows you to charge your device…assuming you don’t mind ponying up the dough for a wireless charging pad, in addition to the charging cover.

    (BUDDIBOX)

    This case from BUDDIBOX has a lot of nice features. The case is relatively rugged, and the LED indicator makes it easy to see how much juice you’ve got left. It also has a pleasant, ergonomic profile.

    This case may not have the prestige of, say, a Mophie Juice Pack…but since Mophie still hasn’t announced a release date for their Samsung Galaxy S5 battery case, this BUDDIBOX case might be the next best thing.
