Google Nexus 5 - Wireless Charging Through Case....Not Too Hot?
This question ties into a problem I encountered last week which resulted in an RMA (read here: What The F...? Display has gone apes*#t.) With the Nexus 5 having wireless charging capabilities, I certainly took advantage of this with my launch day unit. I bought the LG WCP-300 charger from Verizon after reading lots of reviews and everything was fine. As mentioned in the link above, my screen completely ceased to work in the span of about a minute. Can't determine a cause, but that unit was returned today after receiving a replacement a week later.
I noticed that charging my phone through the wireless charger, it would get quite warm. More so than what I thought to be normal. Reading the accessories threads, a major question many had was "will it charge through the case?" I have a Diztronic TPU case and I set my phone down to charge once with the case to test it out. This made my phone VERY hot, I want to say about 116 degrees according to the battery app that I had. I couldn't help but think it was unusual, especially when charging with a case on seemed so common to many users.
Now, has anyone else noticed how hot their phone gets when charging through a wireless charger? I don't plan on charging with a case on, but I'm thinking I should maybe just once to determine if it would get as hot again. But I also can't help but wonder if this charger was the cause behind the issue with my first unit? Maybe it was a defective unit to begin with? I won't ever know, but I'd like to get some input from other users who charge via wireless chargers.
