    Default How to keep charger cover sealed?

    I just got a wireless charging pad/receiver, so I don't have to use the flap anymore. However, I feel like it's gotten a little loose as it opens up sometimes randomly. Should I tape it down or what can I do?

    Mine doesn't seal well either. You can find new covers on eBay for a few bucks each, but they come from China so it may take a w.eek or more.

    If you are careful around water than I wouldn't worry about it. To get a replacement cover is going to cost around $19. That's a lot considering what it is.

    I know $20 is ridiculous but IMO it's not worth risking, even if you do tape it up.

    Hi thank you very much for the links! Just ordered one for myself in hopes to fix a loose port cover. Had anyone had success with these?
