    Default Wireless Charging Issues (S6 Edge + New Charger)

    Hello,

    Wondering if any body else has been experiencing this and has come across a solution. When I put the S6 Edge on the charging pad (new one that came with the phone at Best Buy) it either works without issue 25% of the time, or the phone will say wireless charging paused after about 30 seconds and then the charging pad will flash 75% of the time. I am being sure to place the phone centered on the pad and on its back. Sometimes it will happen so many times in a row that I try unplugging the pad and restarting the phone and then it works, but I do not want to have to do this every time.

    I've experienced something similar, to what you are describing. Whenever, I place my phone (S6E) on the pad, it will start to charge. However, it will disconnect and reconnect several times a minute. I am going to be replacing it sometime this week.
    I, thought that I was the only one, that is experiencing issues with the charging pad.

    Well i have not had any problems with it yet. Only time it doesn't change is when i don't place the phone on right. I would go to bb and try getting a new pad if you haven't, and see if that fixes it.

    No case right? I use a flat wireless charger (can't remember the name, about $20) at work and a the tylt stand charger at home. I had a versa case (pretty protective, thinner than the thor) which interfered with the charging on the tylt. None of my other cases have causes this problem.

    I have the same problem With NO Case my S6 will constantly say charging paused. So I'm and engineer and I was refreshing my inductance and magnetic field knowledge.

    I began trouble shooting by increasing the gap to simulate a cell phone case and it works. Whats going on is with out a phone case the induce magnetic field is too strong drive up a high voltage. To make it work either get a cell phone case or put a piece of paper folded in half between your phone and the charge. Working for me all day now. There could be a hiccup in samsungs progamming too though.... pretty damn sad no one caught this issue sooner. The strength of a magnetic field drops exponentially with distance.

    Or plug a lower amp charger into the pad..

    google mutual inductance equation... I cant post links i guess.

    I'm having the same issue with a ZENS Single Wireless charger. I have two of them and used them flawlessly with my old Nexus 4. Just got the Galaxy S6 and when I put the phone, case or not, on the charger it keeps beeping "Wireless Charging Paused" over and over for a about a minute. Then after awhile, it starts happening again. The charger is charging the phone, but the constant beeping and message popping up is annoying, especially when I'm at work. I've spoken with ZENS, the charging pad manufacturer, and they said they had customers who experienced this but it was fixed when they received the 5.0.2 firmware update. I'm running 5.0.2 and it's still happening for me.

    I can't seem to get the Nexus Wireless charger to work at all with the S6. It works great with the N5, but no matter where I place the phone it just won't charge. I do have a case on the phone as well, and it works mostly ok with the Samsung charger.

    With the Samsung charger it's not consistent about keeping it charged to 100%. Sometimes once it gets fully charged it stops charging, other times it will keep it at 100% for a few hours, and then stop. But I've never woke up to it being at 100% when on the wireless charger.

    Same deal with my charger(s) + S6. ZENS Single Wireless Charger Black. I have 2 of them. Place it on, charges for 5 seconds and then randomly starts disconnecting.

    I'm starting to think their chargers are chinese crap and are not rated/certified at all. Just avoid this brand. Also 5.0.2 by the way.

    Other users having a good experience with wireless charging, if so what brand / model?

    And I've tried placing a few papers between phone and charger. Same deal.

    I found a workaround for mine... using a Sony CP-W5 and a S6 Edge.

    Got to watching it, and the disconnect always happened when the screen lock engaged. I beat it by setting Daydream (under Settings, then Display and Wallpaper) to happen when charging (it was set to Off by default), so it no longer goes into screen lock when I engage the charger, it locks when I remove it from the charger.

    Worked for me.

    I have the samsung mini wireless charger and so far no issues. I will say that the edge is very slippery on it without a case. It would actually start sliding no matter how I put it on the charger. Good thing is I have an xtreme guard protector on the back that gives it some traction and prevent the sliding. I would imagine sliding is not a issue for anyone with cases. I'm getting 2 more of the chargers.

    I ran into that same problem when I tried to use a pad off of one of my PC Battery Backup's USB charging ports, when I moved the pad off a wall outlet it was fine which told me the Battery Backup port had some sort of current limit on it and the pad kept trying to exceed it hence the charging-not charging-charging-not charging-charging....etc.

    I'm having the same issue at first I thought it was my pad but I've bought 3 different ones including the official Samsung pad. Same issue. I contacted Samsung and they claimed no one else has reported it. They "suspect" it's a third party app causing the issue. But after 45 minutes I ended the conversation so we never reached a solution.

    I had a issue with the samsung pad. It would shut off in ten minutes of charging. After talking with samsung I restarted the phone in safe mode and it charged perfectly so the issue is a app. I was using a live wallpaper app. I uninstalled it and face book. After rebooting the phone in normal mode it seems to be charging fine. The only thing Im not sure is if the charger will continue to charge after the phone reaches 100 percent. I got lucky choosing the correct app as it could have been any of them. I did re-install facebook and phone still seems to charge fine

    Anecdotal, but the LG wireless charging pad seems to be working just fine. I don't leave it on that pad overnight, but at work once it gets to 100% it keeps the phone there.

    I have had the Samsung pad keep it there for 2-3 hours, so I don't want to say my "test" is conclusive at all. Just my experience.

    Thumbs up Re: Wireless Charging Issues (S6 Edge + New Charger)

    Same symptoms here. Samsung S6 and Samsung chargers times two - both phones have cases.

    Interestingly, symptoms started when the two chargers/phones were put near each other (8 inches). One solo charged fine. But when the second phone was placed on the nearby charger, the first phone started with the symptoms. Moved the second charger to a separate room, and all working fine.

    Moral of the story - Check surroundings for another magnetic field, and make sure it is not near it!

    I have found if that the pausing coincides with the screen timeout. I changed the timeout to 10 mins and it worked for the full 10 minutes.

    I am using the Tylt Vu charger and have had no issues. It will say wireless charging paused when I take it off but that is the only time.
    They advertise that the VU is designed to provide as much power as your standard USB charger (1 Amp) and will charge as fast as your USB charger as long as your phone is designed to accept that much power. Of course thats not as fast as the quick charge.

    This has been my only workaround thus far. So irritating.

    Hi,
    I had the same problem with my S6 pausing during wireless charging. I have the Powerbot PB1020 and it doesnt come with the plug in charger, just the cable. The problem was that the Powerbot required 5 volts 1.5 amps output power supply and the phone charger I was using was from my old phone, 5 volts 1 amp output. Most phone chargers are 5 volts 1 amp output. After switching it to a 5 volt 2 amp charger, the problem went away. The charger that comes with the S6 met the power requirements of the wireless charger and it also worked fine with that. Check the power requirements of your wireless charger and make sure your power supply's amperage output is the same or greater than the the required input to your wireless charger. It seems if the power requirements are not met the wireless charger must not work properly. I have had no problems since. I hope this helps.

    I'm having a similar problem with the Duracell Powermat. It's really annoying, if it's not on there 100% centered it won't charge and sometimes it "pauses" charging after a few seconds. I figured the charger was crap and so I ordered the round Samsung charging pad. We'll see how that goes.
    My S6 Edge does have the clear Samsung case on it but it is super thin and i refuse to take it off everytime I put it on the charger so I didn't even try it without the case.

    I use the ravpower wireless charger and it seems to work fine.
    My only concern is if wireless charging damages the battery or causes any overcharging.

    I leave it when I go to bed and pick it up in the morning but it is sometimes a little warm which shouldn't happen cuz it would have stopped charging hours ago.
