    Just swapped out my edge plus for note. Have a Samsung wireless charger. Worked great for edge. On note it charges about 5% then stops. Do I need to change a setting or anything?

    Just about everyone is having the same issue. I didn't have the problem the first day, but I have every day since.

    I've done a lot of reading on wireless chargers and the reviews are really mixed.

    Some says it starts and stops and the beep keep them up all night.
    Some doesn't trickle charge and stops after 100% so phone is around 80 to 90% in the morning.
    Some just stops working after awhile.

    People say most is a problem of the phone and not the charger itself. It's the only reason I havent picked up a wireless charger yet. The results just arent consistent and I cant afford to wake up one day and find my phone not charged so I'll stick with cords until this technology advances a bit more.

    If it's the samsung charger that Best Buy was giving away with the phones, there are several threads here about it already. It's hit or miss for many that got them whether they work or don't. When they dont, it will act as you described, on for a few minutes then stop charging. Mine refuses to charge my Note. Some have reported that turning on daydream mode allows the phone to work with the charger. Haven't tried that myself, I got a Spigen stand style charger that I like better anyway.

    I was looking to add one more wireless charger in my house and I like the way the Spigen looks. I have the otterbox commuter for my case. Can you or anyone reading this verify if the Spigen will charge with it on?

    I just tried the charger using daydream and it charged to full without interruption, although it only had about 12% to full.
    Earlier today I had it on the charger with only about 6% to go and it stopped twice.

    I'm really wondering if it could be a manufacture problem? I had something similar happen to me with my Note2 after I bought it.

    After having it for a couple of months(New out of the box), it developed a random charge issue. I could plug it in and it might charge overnight or sometimes I'd plug it in and in the morning, it would be lower than when I plugged it in.

    I bought a new charge plug card to repair it and I opened my phone to do the service myself. What I found was that the charge card cable was not fully plugged into the main board and only made intermittent contact. So, whoever the prison laborer was that put my phone together on the line didn't do the job right. It was good enough to pass the test but not good enough to work properly. I plugged the connection back in and never had another problem with it all these years later. I still have the repair part that I never used.

    I wonder if it could be a quality control issue. What more would you expect from 12 year old Chinese Prison labor.

    Works for the most part BUT I use alarm clock and have clock face open and in night mode. EVERY night I'll wake up to see the charger flashing green and the phone charged to around 90%. The screen will be shut off too.

    It works when I open the clock back up and remove it from the charger placing it down again. Finishes charging and clock stays open until I wake up.

    I don't have the Samsung charger, but I have plenty of other Qi chargers around he house, and they all work just fine with my Note 5 - case on or off. I've seen a few of these reports, but maybe it has to do with the charger. The ones I have all work perfectly ..

    Any wireless charger with a 1A or higher output will charge the Note 5 at "regular" speed (except apparently some of the black color Samsung puck chargers). There aren't any Qualcom"fast charge" wireless chargers available yet as far as I can find. I am successfully using the old Samsung S charger pad, and the Laniaiker model NCC1701 which I got very reasonably on Amazon (http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...ilpage_o02_s00) and have the Anker PowerPort Qi Wireless Charger on order from Anker Direct through Amazon. be advised that Anker Direct takes 10 to 14 or more days to get anything to your door.(http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...ilpage_o01_s00).

    Samsung has said the wireless charger that best buy gave out is the wrong one for the note. The Samsung wireless fast charger is the one that works with the note. I was told by samsung that I should sell mine and spend a little extra and get the fast charger. With that being said I have had luck with turning my phone at an angle on the charger. I deleted the pics i took of the angle off my phone but I posted them in another thread. Day dream didn't work for me.

    I have the Itian wireless charger (similar to Tylt) and it works great with my Note 5. I just place the Note 5 in horizontally as that position works best. Get full charge every time.

    What they are saying is that the Note 5 and Edge 6+ have the ability to use the Qualcomm Fast Charge technology on a wireless charger. However, there are no such chargers available yet. Even the one sold by Samsung is not yet available. It is listed as out of stock and has been from Samsung USA since the Note 5 has been available.

    The issue is the Samsung charger, not the Note. My wife's s6 active had issues with that POS charger too. Buy a cheap one from Amazon and ebay the Samsung one.

    FRUSTRATING!!!!!

    I absolutely cannot stand my Samsung standard Qi wireless charger and wireless charging experience!!!

    I cannot confidently lay my phone down on the charger at night and know what to expect in the morning... Sometimes I wake up to a 95% charge...other times, I wake up to a 45% charge... The inconsistency drives me completely up the wall and I refuse to use my wireless charger anymore. It is an unpredictable waste of time...

    I wish I had the confidence to know whether this is a charger issue...or a phone issue...

    It's a charger issue. Try another Qi charger. Then you'll know.

    I have three of the samsung ones and no problems but how slow they charge. But they are all on the larger 5 port power bricks like ankey and ankor. so maybe test it with a different power source. will the fast wireless charger work on the s6? and ti s supposed to be as fast as using the charger that comes with the s6?

    Like some others here, I have just got the Spigen wireless charger featuring 3 coils. After 3 days I can say this is one good charger. Once it reaches 100%, it seems to shut itself down as I don't see any light coming from the front. I put it on the charger at night when I go to bed, the next morning when I take it off, it is at 100% and no heat. It does not fast charge, but that's not a concern since it's fully charged in the mornings. I do have a Ringke case on the phone, no issue with it. There are other chargers obviously made by the same company, as they all look the same, just slap their name on it and that's it. The Spigen was a couple bucks more than the other ones listed on the bay. Don't think I'll even bother with the Samsung fast wireless charger.

    Interesting that the charger claims to be made only for the Note 5 and the Edge+

    Amazon.com: Wireless Charger, Spigen® [Wireless Charging Pad] 3 Coil Charger [F300W] Premium Wireless / Qi Charging Stand Only for Qi Enabled Phones Galaxy Note 5/Galaxy S6 Edge Plus/S6/S6 Edge/Tablets Only - F300W (SGP11480): Cell Phones & Accessor

    I wonder what makes it so special? I am sure it is special too...why else would Spigen limit their sales opportunities?

    But it doesn't claim adaptive fast charging either... Interesting... I really do wonder what makes this so special that it should only be bought by Note 5 and Edge+ owners...
