    Charged mine overnight and temps looked like they got to about 107, but that was after I was playing a game and set it on the charger. Looks like it leveled off to about 102 when charging. Ambient temps are about 70 in my place overnight. I plugged in the wall charger that came with it this AM and it was only about 85 when charging. I doubt its anything to be concerned about considering it will run in the low 100's when under heavy use and no charger. I forgot to add that it looks like the wireless is charging at 620 mA with this ebay setup vs the 1200 mA of the stock wall charger. The GSAM app seems to show current charge rate.

    Is there a way to turn off the beep when it starts charging on the wireless charger? I didn't look because I was sleeping, but it seems that it may cycle in and out of charging mode when sitting on the charger and at basically 100% charge. Making a beep every time when you are trying to sleep is pretty lame.

    I bought this wireless charger for $18.99

    It fits inside the stock S5 plastic case, no bulges created on the back.
    I did lay a piece of business card over the charging contacts.
    Measured about 3/8" x 1", without it the contacts were intermittant.

    This one => * Qi Standard Wireless Charger kit 'mine'

    It comes with the charging pad making this one a really great deal.
    How did you know you needed the business card fix? Exactly what "symptoms" made you check that?

    I ask because this morning my phone was only 75% charged and it was on the charger all night. I haven't had any issues the nights before.

    I just got an S5 and I used to have the S3. I got a Qi Charger for my S3 when the port stopped working. Do you know if the Qi S3 charger will work for the S5? The battery sizes are different and the ports don't seem to match up but it looks like there is a door on the back of the phone labeled R1 and R2 that might work. Any idea if I shoould open this door and see? I'm guessing no..

    Also the "Voice Mail Update" notification for Verizon keeps coming up. The posts I found say this is just unfixable right now. Is there anything I can do to hide this?

    Besides that I like the phone a lot.

    Thanks!

    I know this post is rather old, but did you ever find an answer to your question. I just bought a qi receiver and am waiting for delivery. I also use the sview case for my S5. Were you able to use it?

    Does the OEM wireless charging cover work on the AT&T S5? I know that on the AT&T LG G3 the Qi wireless charging cover doesn't work because AT&T is all in with PMA unfortunately.

    Hi there. I couldn't find any satisfactory reply or comment on whether I need an extra back to use a Ravpower wireless charger. I have a SG5 straight from the box, and the RAV charger isn't working. I suspect I need to purchase a charging back. Can anyone confirm this?

    You will need a wireless charging back for the s5. The rav charging pad will not charge your phone wirelessly without the cover. However you can still use the pad using a cable to your phone. I still use the charging pad for my iphone (using a cable of course) as it's fast portable charger

    I understand. What is the purpose of the Qi Standard wireless charging receiver module, then? Couldn't that item alone be used instead of the case, since I already have a case? I'd be saving $20. Forgive my ignorance, but I find incredible that in the 21st.C. we still have to buy all these extras to charge a phone wirelessly. As a matter of fact, I think Samsung should provide every customer with one included in the OEM, but maybe that's just me. Thanks again!

    Hate to say it, but your tech is old. The s6 is out now, and with the newer model, they did include wireless charging out of the box (with a wireless charger of course (sold separately).

    If you register your phone with samsung, they may send you a coupon for a % off. Thats what they've always done for me on my past galaxy.

    Buying the wireless cover should not be that much as it's an older phone. Also you might be able to find someone online who might sell it to you cheap, cause they either dont like it, or they've upgraded their phones.

    the receive module which in this case would be the wireless charger if i'm correct, will link directly with your battery so you do not have to plug in your phone to be charged.

    You can go either of two ways:
    1: Purchase the charging back cover for your S5, but this increases the depth of the phone just enough so that most covers will not fit.
    2: Purchase the Qi receiver that goes inside your phone, and you can use most cover as they will fit just fine. This method is cheaper.
    We have two S5's in the house, using one of each, and I find no difference as far as charging...

    The second option you suggest is certainly cheaper; almost by half the price and less bulky which is def a plus. I think that would be a much better idea since I also have two units of the same phone, SG5. I also have an even older one, an iPhone 4s, but i'm not sure whether this charger (Ravpower, Ark series) would be usable for it. In any event, I appreciate your kind advice.
