    Thought it might be interesting to see if there was a color pattern for the wireless chargers people received that are not fully charging. I had in store credit with my 2 note 5 purchases and 1 chose 1 white charger and 1 black charger. The white one works flawlessly for my wife. When she wakes up in the morning she is always at 100%. I had the black one and about every 6 minutes mine would stop charging and the battery would drain. Found out the hard way the 1st night use. Have tried both phones on white charger vs black one with positive results for the white and negative on the black. Video taped it to show sprint so they would understand the problem and didn't just put it back on the shelf.
    So is the problem with black chargers only or did you get a bad white one?
    I exchanged my faulty black one for the last white one in house. Hoping for the best tonight.

    Yeah I've noticed my black one (free from BB) is having issues. I do have another one that I got from Amazon when I had my S6 Active. Going to use that tonight and see if it makes a difference tomorrow.

    I bought the black one and had issues with it right away. I made sure I used a 2A charger and didn't use a long micro usb cable and that helped.

    I read somewhere to enable the daydreaming while charging and I have not had any problems since. Charges flawlessly.

    I have went thru 3 of the Best Buy freebies, and all 3 charge my Note for 2 to 3 minutes then begin to blink blue and charging stops.

    I called Samsung today and they sent me prepaid UPS tags to return theae and are sending new ones out. We'll see if they are any better.

    I put the thick packaging from my screen protector on top of the charger, it went to green. Definitely not something that should happen for such an expensive charger. If I had to pay for it of course. It works with my and my wife's LG G4 with no issues.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty certain the issue is actually the way wireless charging is handled that you are seeing drain overnight, so if you put phone down at 9:00 and it takes three hours to charge it will run its full cycle by 12:00, the wireless charge sync then shuts it's self off when light goes green, now your phone is sitting in standby mode from 12:00am till when ever you get up and take it off the platter.

    So assuming you are losing roughly 2% per hour and it sits idle not charging for 6-8 hours you would potentially pick up your phone in the morning and be at 88% battery roughly.

    I think the issue is that once the wireless cycle ends it requires the phone to be reseated to start wireless charging again, the phone will not sense it's low and try and keep it topped off.

    I woke up with 100% charge. It didn't start draining after being full and my wife's charger is the same way.

    I am in the same boat. I purchased the Note 5 and my wife purchased the S6 Edge+ and both wireless chargers (black) that we received will stop charging after roughly 5 to 10 minutes.

    I thought at first it stopped charging when I received a new notification (a buddy of mine posted something to my Facebook wall and right as I got the notification it stopped charging), but then I monitored it for a little bit and found that this was not the case.

    I also have a TYLT wireless charger that I use at work and it charges flawlessly. I am going to try the Daydream settings tonight to see if that helps and if not I am going to see if Best Buy will let us swap them for TYLTs as they are basically the same price.

    Yes, this is a issue IMO. A $50 charger should out perform a $5 wired charger. I'm shocked this product hasn't been recalled. I'm going to try to exchange and see if I get a unit that works. Thus far, this is my biggest issue with the note 5 purchase even though it's not directly note 5 related.

    There's definitely an issue. I started a thread about this a couple of days back. Since then I went to BB and replaced the puck with a new one (same charger) and it's been working as it should. I wanted to make sure it want' my N5 so I tried the first charger with my older Droid MAXX and the same thing happened.

    I've had my black samsung wireless charger almost 2 months and never had this happen with my regular s6 edge. Got the new s6 edge plus Friday and now get the blinking blue light errors and it stops charging. My girlfriend kept her regular s6 edge and it will charge with no problem on it. Smh... this is getting frustrating.

    Posting this on all the wireless charger threads because I was so excited at how well it worked last night!

    I got this one from Amazon yesterday and it worked flawlessly! Woke up and the red charging led on my phone was still lit, as well as the led on the charger saying it was connected. Phone was cool, and it was at 100%. I LOVE the fact that it's tilted/angled as well.

    I have the black Samsung from Best Buy as well and I have yet to wake up to a full charge. I've used it every night, made sure it's charging, and then it usually stops and starts flashing blue, which is pretty annoying in the middle of the night. The most change I've gotten out of it is 80%. Has anyone been able to return it to Best Buy for a different kind of wireless charger?
