Deal Alert: Nokia Fatboy Charging on sale at Verizon

Fatboy Charging Pillow

Been on the fence on getting the Fatboy Charging Pillow for your Nokia Lumia 920, 822 (with optional charging backplate) or Verizon HTC 8X? If so, Verizon may have a deal on the charger that may knock you off that fence.

The Fatboy Charging Pillow is running in the neighborhood of $80-100. Verizon has the charging pillow on sale for $59.99. While details are a little sketchy, it looks like the Fatboy is only available in black. Still, it's a nice deal.

You can find all the details on Verizon's Fatboy charger offer here.  Oh...not entirely sure why Verizon is listing the 8X as not compatible.  Especially when Verizon's product page notes the 8X's wireless charging feature.

Thanks, Kei, for the tip!

Isn't this just a $50 wireless charging plate with a pillow case over it?

ZX9 says:

Yes. It is. If I get a 920, a DIY charging pad will be one of my first priorities.

More of a pillow than a pillow case I think. Good for vibrating phones that would otherwise be lying on hard reverberating surfaces. :)

Ordered mine over a month ago in my country. In black. Will get it in January if I'm lucky.

Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online(Click on menu Home)


gtbuzz says:

That's what it seems like. I wouldn't mind one like that, but I'm not willing to pay more than for the regular charging pad.

Tomasz S. says:

That's exactly what it is. I was really disappointed by that, I expected the DT-901 to be a pillow with the charging coils inside. Unfortunately it's just a bundle of the DT-900 plate and a pillow cover for you to shove the plate in.

albertico says:

You're kidding...

Tomasz S. says:

No, im not. The DT-901 box includes:
- Nokia Wireless Charging Plate DT-900
- CA-211 cable and AC-301 power supply - same stuff as with the DT-900
- Fatboy Wireless Charging Pouch CP-603
That last thing could be sold seperately as an overpriced add-on for the charging plate. But noone would buy it then.

Nonono... The only way to treat a 920:)

ny_yankees says:

I rather get the stand for that price
One more thing Verizon HTC 8x is 49.99 at Best buy

Yeah the more I like at the stand and that pillow the more I think the stand suites me more. That said my free cyan plate should be here Monday!! :D

Eric Hon says:

has or can anyone confirm that the VZ 8x does indeed have compatile wireless Qi charging?  I haven't seen any videos of people trying it.  Maybe missed it after being on vacation for a week or so

12Danny123 says:

Yes it does have wireless charging. Its on the Verizon website

ade333 says:

In the Vz store near me they have an 8x sitting on a Nokia charging plate in the store and it definetly connects

absolutshame says:

Yep. I bought my girl an HTC 8X and gave her my extra charge pad.

ajgag57 says:

Not sure what the Qi charging is, but the VZ HTC 8X definitely works with the Fatboy charger plate, both with and without the pillow.  And it works with the silicon cover.

pr0phecy says:

Crap they have em on sale?! They don't even sell em here in Dutchland period! Hell, they don't even sell the Lumia 920 yet :-\
Dutchland sux as always...

erzhik says:

$20 cheaper than Amazon had it a few weeks back.

jusatin says:

Got mine for free with the purchase of my L920, now of it would just arrive.. But that's a great deal, pillow really helps with the vibrating. Isn't that cheaper than the pad alone?

No, the pad alone is $49.99.

John Kwon says:

Is the pillow available by itself? I just want to cover the plate I already have.

myrandex says:

Sweet ordered

ChrisLynch says:

WIsh this was available from OTHER than a carrier, Verizon or AT&T or other.  Why isn't this avilable anywhere else in the US?!?!?

edjr07 says:

This is crazy, that they even have it. I'm amazed and I will most likely pick one up.

willied says:

I didn't realize how expensive this thing was (and still is on sale) in the first place. Wow.

metsfan421 says:

Nice!  Just ordered 2.. One for me and one for my girl...

hysonmb says:

I bought a 3 position Energizer pad from Amazon a few months ago for $20 after they announced that the 920 would us Qi.
Being that it charges more than one device at a time, it's still a value at $65.00 when compared to the alternative.

segadc says:

Tempting.  I noticed my usual discount for accessories doesn't apply.  Is it because its on sale?

markk132 says:

these things are way overpriced, you can get a regular phone charger for $3.  i understand the luxury, so i'll pay $20 for a wireless one, but more than $20 is a rip off.  not gonna lie, i really want one for my desk at work, but i can wait until prices drop or amazon comes out of nowhere with a significant price drop for a couple of days like they always do on random products..

Kei Square says:

Any time for the tip! 
Wp central FTW!

I still haven't even got my free wireless charger from Att.

MrVol84 says:

so what's so good about this fatboy pillow charger? does it work better than the regular charging plate?

MSFTMatt says:

It is the plate with a soft padded cover. Benefit is it still charges wireless on Lumia and 8X with otterbox defender.

segadc says:

Bought!  I get an accessories discount on VZW so total with tax and free shipping... $47.69!

ajgag57 says:

Bought this to use with my HTC 8X.  Not sure if its really woth the price, but it is very convenient.  Sure you can't use it and charge it at the same time as with wired charging, but who really cares if it is almost always fully charged.  And I find that I am misplacing my phone less often since I now have a set place to set it when not wearing it.  By the way, I am really liking the HTC 8 phone.

segadc says:

Weird mine shipped yesterday but no tracking number yet.
