The Nexus Wireless Charger is also available from Google Play for $49.99.

Thee beauty of this charger is that it is universal, so it fits all your Nexus devices including the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and nexus 7, and no doubt it would fit the Nexus 10 2 that’s rumored to be out before or on Black Friday.

Google states the Nexus Wireless Charger will leave the warehouse in about two business days.

Nexus 5 16 GB Restocked But…

Speaking of Nexus 5 and Google Play, they’ve finally restocked the Nexus 5, and it is available for sale again. However, it’s got a similar delivery time as before – currently stated as “ships in three to four weeks,” while the 32 GB Nexus 5 ships by December 3.

That means if you were purchase Nexus 5 right this minute, you might get it delivered by December 10 at the earliest, and December 17 at the latest. If you have any hope of getting it for someone as a holiday gift, and you want to save the $100 plug by purchasing at Google Play, then you’ll need to buy it no later than December 2 for the three week wait, and no later than November 30 for the four week wait.

If Google pushes the delivery times back to five weeks again, a holiday Nexus 5 from Google Play would be impossible. We’ll post an update when and if the delivery schedules change.
