So, I'm not sure what the issue is here. I purchased the official Qi charging cover for the S5 and the official Mini Charging Pad.

Every time I try to charge my phone on the pad, it goes for an hour or so then the light starts flashing orange. Charging pad works fine with my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.

Any ideas? I've seen other scattered reports of this on the web but no solutions at all.

I'm getting the same issue and I thought it was just poor placement on the mat. But I have tried it placed in different places on the pad, none of which made a difference. I also thought it was possibly the Diztronic cover reducing the efficiency of the charge, so I removed it to charge the phone. Nope, same issue. Using the supplied cable and the 2A Samsung charger supplied with the S5.

The problem comes when I set it away to charge overnight, and I wake up to find there's no full charge (once worried when it only had 36%, not enough for my day).

Every time it fails, the orange indicator flashes on the Samsung charge pad.

It's starting to annoy me
