Unhappy Wireless Charging Battery Cover is Thicker ?

Hi on my note 3 I decided to be clever and purchase a wireless rear battery cover ... you know not the stick on QI charging sticker that goes onto the battery but the expensive complete replacement cover that replaces the battery cover and adds wireless charging toi the note 3
Well ... just for the record it is THICKER than a normal battery cover so you cant fit the note into a case OTTERBOX Defender in my example
just thought this should be on record ... so the advice is to save money and get the cheapers internal stick on QI receiver and not the replacement rear cover

hopes this is of use and save somebody cash and problems when fitting the note 3 into a protective case if its got the charging battery cover

The best way to save cash is just buy one wireless card. more cheap and no additional thicker.

This one is cheap and it works.... and you use the original back cover, so you can use a normal case. Please be advised that is creates just a little bump just below the camera.

Have you read anywhere that indicates a slim case still works? I have the Incipio case on it and don't want to lose its use but want the wireless charging. Thanks.

It should fit because the bump is not that big [though you better do some research first] . I used a UAG navigator on mine and that case was a tight fitting case and it still fit.

try folding a piece of paper to .5mm thickness, maybe half inch square and put it inside your phone on the upper part of the Note 3's battery, put back cover on, then try the otterbox case.....

look in post no. 1996 of this thread so you have an idea how the receiver looks like.

goodluck
