    So this OEM free Samsung charger is not working. It will charge for 2 minutes and then stop. Not sure if it's placement or what. I've tried with and without a case.

    1) what other charger do you guys recommend?

    2) any issues with using another charger? I don't want excessive heat.

    I'm trying not to spend too much but simply want a charger that will work and always charge my phone.

    I also want something larger than a hockey puck style that is known to work with Samsung's

    Thanks! Need to get something asap cause I hate USB charging

    I ordered this one made by Spigen. Should have it in a day or two. I've tried the small one that I got free with the phone and it stops charging during the night. I'm presently using the larger qi charger Samsung used to sell and it works but the phone will slide around on it. Hoping this upright style will work better. It also has three coils allowing for better charger contact with the phone and no so finicky about placement. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00UGI...cUvbUpU4631318

    I have this one coming, should be here tomorrow. I plan to use it next to my bed because I like to use my phone as my alarm clock. I'll post back in a day or two if this works well.

    Yeah, I was reading through a thread about failed wireless charging. I was dead set on this phone until I heard that. But I may get one and try it out with what I have at home. I'd love to hear from people who've gotten the charging to work correctly. I want this to be my next phone.

    It's not the phone, it's the free charger that's coming with them in the current promotion. Not everyone is experiencing this issue. I am, but I have a different qi charger bought through Samsung over a year ago that works fine with the phone. It's a great phone, the free charger not so much, at least in my case.

    A friend of mine said he has some issues with a Nokia charger. And there are people claiming issue with other chargers over on XDA. I wonder what it is?

    I haven't seen any reports outside of this forum but have not looked either. In the past I've seen reports of various phones and compatibility issues with various chargers. I've always just attributed that to wireless charging being somewhat finicky and their respective coils lining up properly. I have a Nokia qi charger at home, I'll have to give it a try.

    I've found that most of the time when using a wireless charger you have to find the "sweet spot" with the TYLT Vu charger you don't have to, just drop it on there and look for the status light at the bottom to turn green.

    That's the one I have. Let me know if you have success with it. I'd prefer to not have to run around hunting the perfect charger for this phone. Thanks!

    Ok so when I got home I had 73% battery remaining. Put the phone on the Nokia DT-900 at 3:55. It stayed connected and was charged to 100% at 4:55, one hour for 27%. While not a conclusive test given the amount of charge needed and the time it took, it did at least stayed charging the entire time in contrast to what I experienced with the free qi charger I got when I bought my phone. Hope this help.

    That sounds much better than what I've been hearing. Thanks for the update!

    Where is the free charger offer? I was thinking of buying those wireless charger antennas for my wife and son's S5 and S4 phones so we could do away with some of the cables all over the house.

    OH OK. I got mine through Sprint.

    I'm looking for a large scale charging pad. We had one of the early Energizer(Non-Qi) models a few years back the my son used to recharge his Wi remotes and liked it.

    Do they make any decent ones that will charge more than 1 phone? I found 1 3 coil pad on Amazon but it was more so that it doesn't require exact positioning to charge, not for multiple devices.

    Had this LG one for a couple years now still going strong. Been through 3 phones including the Note 5 now. I believe Verizon sells these still in store even though I've been with AT&T forever they never carried these. About $40.

    I'm having the same problem with the Samsung charger I got for the Best Buy promotion. Charges for a little while then stops and starts blinking blue.
