so the s4 powers the sabre, while being Qi charged?
Yep, it's perfectly set up. Put it in the dock...plug in the DAC...Tasker will autoplay my music.
Interesting, like aznpos531 said, I too thought Qi + OTG would work, if it doesn't work with the Nexus5, I doubt it will work with any phone.
it works with the S4 apparently. Nexus 5 charges with OTG-with-power (otg-y/dock etc) but you may need to make the nexus5 connection last after the DAC has been powered by your otg-power source
edit: I use battery packs with usb power even when in the car as switching off ignition or starting the engine zeroes the voltage to the 12v socket (or voltage drops too low due to starter motor) and the 5v out dies. When this happens my Nexus5 often bricks until I unclip the battery connected and re-attach. I've modified the motherboard plate to let me do this without taking that plastic plate off.
