    Hey guys! Bought the official samsung charging pad today, for novelty factor more so then anything else if im honest! It was €55 to buy online here in Ireland (which is crazy money) but i got it along with a case for only €40 as part of a deal so i thought why the hell not. It came without a cable so naturally i assume i must use the fast charge cable with it? Here are a few questions i have.........

    If using the fast charging cable with it , does that mean i will be getting fast charging capabilities from it? (iam assuming not)

    If its generally not a good idea to use fast charge plugged in over night then does this apply to the wireless pad in conjunction with the fast charger?

    And lastly. Can i run the cable from the usb port on my computer or does it have to be plugged in to a socket when using the wireless pad? The answers may seem obvious but just asking none the less! Not taking any chances with this baby ha

    1 - No fast charging only works when using the compatible brick and plugging it in. Wireless cannot push it as fast.

    2 - That is up for debate. I would say there isn't an issue but if you're worried you could just put it on the wireless pad instead.

    3 - You could do this but I would recommend to use a wall plug as it will get better power.

    Thanks mate. So essentially, even though i will be using the fast charging brick and cable , because its connected to the wireless pad it loses its fast charging capabilities ? and therefore is also safe to leave plugged in over night?

    One last thing by the way. Will it charge wirelessly with the clear cover from samsung still in place? I assume it would seen as the cover came with the charging pad but some online reviews say it won't charge if you have a cover on. I'll find out for myself when iam home later i guess

    Yes it will charge just fine with the case on it.

    I use a wireless charger but I found that my phone gets really warm. I have a thin samsung flip cover on the phone and it charges just fine with it on. When I charge the phone "normal" the phone doesn't get hot, only on the wireless charger.

    It is normal to heat up some -- no worries .
