Like was mentioned earlier, there's a sweet spot for charging. I almost think that LG and other phone makers should have some sort of label/insignia for the center of the charging coil so we would know. But they don't, so lets look on the inside.
You can see that the center of the coil is below the center of the phone. So, if you're using one of those small round LG chargers, you wont be centering the phone on the charger. And if you're using the Nokia 900 oval charger, you want the bottom of the phone to line up with the bottom of the charging pad, where the indicator light is. I have messed with this quite a bit and have found this placement to be ideal for consistent charging. If you are a little off, it may charge, but it may also go in and out. Each time it goes in and out, it wakes the phone and draws power, thereby reducing the effective charge.
I have no trouble charging my G2 with a heavy Ballistic case on it, on either the Nokia 900 or 910 chargers with the above method.
