I hope that it will get back in few hrs...
I've been using a QI wireless charging pad for a couple of weeks without any problem. As another user posted, the only effect I've noticed is a slight bulge in the back panel. It doesn't get especially hot (although it does warm a little more than with USB charging.)

The only other thing is that I've got a wallet case on my phone and charge through that (so there's some plastic between the phone and charging plate.)

I have the expower ultra thin card and in the instructions it tells you to remove the copper screening sticker from inside the original back plate as it causes extra heat when charging. Its a bitch to peel off as well. Gets warm but not enough to bend my phone by any means and it charges fine through my defender case there's no noticeable bulge in the back plate either. If i want to put it in water i'll throw an otterbox preserver on it.
Currently Stock on until theres a way to reset knox or warranty expires.

Removed the copper sticker to see if it makes any difference. My phone doesn't get any warmer than when charging via USB now.
