    What model case and what charger?


    I like the otterbox symmetry case and would love to use the 30% discount for the Samsung charger, but I'm not sure they'd be compatible. I've read some people can get wireless working fine with the otterbox cases, and others can't.

    Saw a post where a guy was using the Otterbox Commuter with the Samsung Pad from Best Buy and he said it's working fine.

    I'm using a Camo Otterbox Defender and ltian 3 coil charger ( looks just like a tylt ) and works perfectly together. We know what the Defender looks like. And here's the link for the charger.

    Hmmm, the link says it's NOT for the S6/edge, but one for the S6 is coming soon. Your using it ok ? I do like that type of stand tho, very useful.

    Just an FYI, the Commuter doesn't work with the Tylt.

    Yes I just woke up and picked my S6 up from the charger and it was fully charged. 2 weeks ago when I purchased the charger there was nothing in the ad stating it was not for the s6.

    I am using the OEM wireless charger that I got with my preorder. Later today, I hope to post my Otterbox Defender case review on my YouTube channel. I will give it a go then and report back. Don't anticipate an issue.

    Good to know since I wasn't looking froward to returning my Defender and paying the hefty price of the Lifeproof Frè which is sold out of their site. Ballistic cases are really thick as well but they should work as well.

    The Ballistic tough jacket series might not work with wireless charging. The plastic back shell on the Ballistic is much thicker then the Defender.
    I have them for the Note 4 and they are thick as a brick.

    Some one should leave a comment on YouTube and may be he will update his upload.

    Look at this picture of the Ballistic on my Note 4. Look at the speaker hole and you can see just how thick the Ballistic back is.
    I'm not sure about the Ballistic S6 cases though.

    Those using Otterbox cases and wireless charging, what equipment are you using?-bal07.jpg

    Wish I knew. All I do know is that I have both the commuter and the tylt and my phone won't charge

    Try another wireless charging pad.

    Nice info. Picked up a Commuter case today and really like it, and I also went ahead and used the discount to order the charger from Samsung. We'll see how it goes.

    I like the OEM charging pad that I got with my preorder. So far, I have used it without the Defender cases on it. Once I post my review on my YouTube channel. It will be included in the video upload.

    It's probably more a proximity issue than necessarily the materials themselves.

    Otterbox Defender on a Note 3 and a cheapie $10 charging plate. And I can still charge at full current (640mA) if the bottom of the case is about 1/4" above the plate. (And the receiver is an add-in so the coil isn't on the back cover it's inside the cover.)

    Any info on how far you actually have to be to affect charging or what case materials might be an issue? Knowing that it means that I don't have to spend $80 plus tax and shipping on a Lifeproof Frè case.

    Lifeproof cases pretty much suck. We went through about 20 of them with the iPhones. The main problem is with the muffled sound and people at the other end of the line can't hear/understand you. I'm not sure if these newer Lifeproof cases are any better or not. I would not purchase another Lifeproof case if it was the last case on earth. Just what I think.

    I just created a new thread with the video review of the Otterbox Defender case for the GS6 on my YouTube channel. Check it out. At the very end, you can see the OEM wireless charger works just fine with such a rugged case.

    I've been using my S6 in an Defender with my Anker wireless charger, and it hasn't had a problem. I can't say how long it is taking it to charge as I'm asleep while its doing the magic. Here's a link to the charger I have.
