Default Wireless charger sucks!

When I leave it overnight it only charges to 98%. Any idea

It's trickle charging most likely, meaning that it charges to 100% then let's the battery drop a few percent and charges again slowly. I've never plugged in my N5 (I exclusively charge wirelessly) and it always charges to 100%.

I use the Nokia DT-910 and my phone is always at 100% when I wake in the morning. Could be a faulty wireless charger.

What type of wireless charger are you using?I have the Google wireless charger and have no issue. It takes slightly longer than standard wall mount type.I bought a cheap wireless charger also,brought it to work used it twice as it was junk took forever. Now my son uses it as a lasso for our dog.

I have the qi wireless charger. Apparently my DC cable isn't strong enough to supply the current it needs
