    Default Wireless charging with case?

    I recently got the nexus 5 and I have a tpu case from T-Mobile. Does any know if wireless charging will still work? Also how much longer does it take to charge wirelessly?

    tpu cases typically work. wireless charging takes about 20% longer.

    Mine charges just fine with a tpu case. I never compared times with and without the case.

    I will assume that power transmission will reduced by the square of the distance (since that is the physics involved). Thicker case = more distance. It won't charge at all after several mm.

    I am another Diztronic TPU case owner. I have had one of their cases for my last 3 phones.
