Default [Q] Wireless charging for Galaxy s5

Will wireless charging work through my Otterbox defenders series case? I don't feel like taking my case off every night to use the wireless charging. Is there some wireless charging pads that will work better with cases on? Please help

If the case is not too thick, then it should charge wirelessly. I know that I can charge perfectly through my Spigen Slim Fit case.

I can recommend the following 2 chargers as I use them both

Using at work - Koolpad Qi Wireless Charger Pad

Using at home - LuguLake Qi Wireless Charger Charging Pad With 6000mAh Power Bank

I converted both of the chargers into wireless charging stands by combining them with a Small Acrylic Book Stand. The Koolpad is stuck onto the stand with double sided tape, and the Lugulake is stuck on using Velcro strips, so I can remove it and use it as a portable wireless charger.

Hope this info helps. If so, don;t be shy to hit that thanks button.

FWIW, the Bondidea charger with the generic receiver from Tronsmart work fine thru a Urban Armor Gear case.

Charger brings it up to and maintains 100%, everything cool to the touch in the morning.

Some more specifics on what charging pad, what charging receiver and what case (if any) you are using would be quite helpful too.

Hi,
may I ask which Qi receiver you are using? Original Samsung S-Charger Cover or an inlay Qi receiver? Would be interesting to know if the SlimArmour could be used even with the original charging cover!

Greetings,
Zuujin
