    Am I the only one experiencing a no charge using a wireless charger and otterbox with the S8+? It's an $850 phone I would imagine I'm not the only one to pur a good case on it. Take the case off it works.

    It's not a matter of a good case being the issue it's typically your wireless charger that's the issue.
    I am guessing, since you are having issues it's a single coil. In order to get it to work through the otterbox you would want to have a 2 coil. I use a CHEAP Itian and it works fantastic even in portrait, don't have to lay it on it's side. And since the S8 Otterbox is so thin works even better than my S7 with Otterbox

    What charger are you using

    But what is the make and model you have, sorry I meant does it have 2 coil above.

    This is what I have and no it's not a FAST CHARGE WIRELESS but it works amazing with the S8 and it worked great with the S7 even in the thicker Otterbox standing upright or sideways
    And it's cheap!

    I have an s8+ with an otter box defender and have tried the 2 and 3 coil chargers...none worked. My brother has one of those "cheap itian" chargers and it worked great. It currently says unavailable on Amazon but I guess I'm going to return yet ANOTHER charger and just wait for the dang itians to become available 🙄
