Info 2 Poetic Slimline Case and the Nexus Wireless Charger

PSA: For some reason the Nexus Wireless charger and the Poetic Slimline Case don't play well together. I have another wireless charger, the Oregon Scientific QI charger, and the Nexus 7 charges without problem with the Slimline case on, but it will not charge on the Nexus Wireless Charger with the case on. The case seems pretty decent, particularly for the price, except for this minor issue. The Nexus Wireless Charger works when I remove the case and it works with my Nexus 5 as well.

These are the links for the specific models I am referring to:

Hmm... I guess I should have done the research before ordering the Nexus wireless charger (which is already here). I have the Poetic Slimline on the way right now.

Are you absolutely certain it doesn't work? With the official Asus case fitted the Nexus charger works but it is a little fiddly to get it into the right position as the magnets are too weak to help locate the sweet spot.

I am fairly certain that at least with my charger it does not work. I played around with it for a while. When I took the case off I was able to charge the tablet every time with little trouble with placement. I bought the charger just after release. Maybe they will fix the problem with a revision or something. I have to imagine that if the Poetic Slimline has a problem other cases will as well. Or maybe it was just my charger having an issue.

As I mentioned before, the tablet charges with the case on when I use my Oregon Scientific QI charger.

Surpisingly, the Moko Ultra Slim (pretty much the same) case works just fine with my Nexus Orb charger. I've seen a few videos of the new Nexus charger and it almost seems like its range is a bit worse than the Orb from last year.
