Rated 3 out of5 bySvenJ fromThis is PMA not QiThe description really needs better information. There are two main competing wireless charge technologies, PMA and Qi. They are Not compatible. Virtually all Nokia devices, phones and chargers, are Qi. This back is PMA and works with Powermat chargers, not any of the Nokia branded ones. Part of the confusion comes from Nokia chargers being listed as accessories for the 1520. The non-ATT version of the 1520 does indeed have integrated Qi charging capability, and so does work with Nokia chargers. If you have invested in Nokia chargers, plates, stands, etc, this back will not work for you. If you have no investment in wireless charging, you can put this on your ATT 1520, get Powermat chargers and be fine.

Rated 3 out of5 byFurthocker fromshort life one one of twoI bought two of these for our 1520s. They function really well as overnight chargers. In my opinion, they don't add significantly to the bulk and even fit in the same belt cases we always used. However, after only a few months of use, one has already stopped functioning in that it never connections to the Powermat no matter how often I move it around trying to get the beep that signifies charging is starting. I'll have to return that one, which also makes me wonder about the other.

Rated 4 out of5 bySimplicissimus fromworks great with Duracell PowermatsI bought one when it was recently on sale and I use it at home and in the office where I have Duracell mats. It also works on the Powermat outlets in some franchise food outlets near my office. The Duracell mat for two devices transformer is only 834 milliamps, so it isn't as fast as some 2 amp chargers out there, but it connects and disconnects easily so the charge can be interrupted to receive calls. The power plug is unusually narrow so I don't think the transformer could be upgraded. It does add some bulk and weight to the phone, and provides only minimal corner protection, so I keep my 1520 with the Incipio case on it in a Samsung Mega belt case when it is not charging. With the Incipio case on I don't accidently press the edge buttons nearly as often. You have to decide how much the wireless convenience is worth to you, but for 25 bucks I was satisfied.

Rated 1 out of5 bythewaywardsprocket fromTerrible product.I know AT&T took the wireless charging out of the 1520, but this product is not a suitable replacement for it. I bought one though, wish I didn't. This makes the slim 1520 twice as thick. All the dirt, dust, and lint in your pockets will get caught in between the phone and the case and scratch the back of the phone. I only used it a few months and the back of my 1520 is ruined. One flaw of PMA charging is that it makes an annoying buzzing sound.I cut the edges off of my incipio case, making it a mat that I lay the phone down on. That is the only practical use for this. A wireless charging mat, that lays on top of my wireless charging mat.

Rated 5 out of5 byFzub fromExcellent case.Works great with the Duracell charger. The case is quite good, not that bulky. Protects the back well, looks nice.

Rated 1 out of5 byAaronKarp fromDoes not work with Nokia wireless chargersThe site makes this a bit unclear, as it shows Nokia's Qi-based wireless chargers as Lumia 1520 accessories, but this case is not compatible with Qi-based chargers - just PMA ones. I bought it expecting it to work with my Nokia wireless charger and was very disappointed.As a case, it's not bad, though the corners are sharper than I like.
