    Some reason it keeps blinking blue and sometimes it turns off completely. No lights. This is the Samsung charger they offer with the deal. Any ideas?

    If you have a case it may be blocking the connection, no lights = no charge, or charging is complete. I believe the blinking means you have notifications.

    This happens without a case. The blue blinking comes from the charger. Not the phone.

    What a deal, BestBuy was charging over 100.00 dollars more for the phone off contract than the carriers, and if you get your plan through them they were charging more for that too. As far as chargers are concerned, I stick to ones that have 3 charging cores instead of just one, you don't have to be precise when placing the phone on the charger, and I like ones that put out at least 12 volts, many only put out 5 volts making it difficult to power through some cases.

    There is something wrong with the Samsung wireless chargers. I have 2 of them and they act as yours does, shut off and quit charging letting the phone drain.

    I have 2 Duracell Powermats and they work fine. Bring the phone to 100% and then cycle on and off to keep it nearly there until I pick up the phone. There are also MUCH easier to get the phone to start charging.

    Should I just not worry about exchanging it? I have a power mat on the way.

    Is there one you would recommend that's 12volts, etc?

    If you put your GS6 on the OEM charging pad turned off, how much battery life is there?

    I believe that the blue means that it is properly aligned and green means that it's done.

    Solid blue means charging and green means done but this charger will randomly blink blue in the middle of the night and sometimes just completely turn off.

    I have the same problem with mine. It would randomly start blinking blue light in the middle of the night and stop charging. When I wake up there will be somewhere between 90-96% charge left on the battery. Sometimes it would fully charge and the green light will stay on the pad but it will go away after a short while and the pad will not recharge the phone even when the phone battery is down to the low 90% range. I tried to exchange it at BB but they said they don't have any extras in-stock. The ones the stores got are not standard retail versions (no retail packaging). I believe they only receive one per pre-ordered phone. The Samsung guy at the Samsung Kiosk told me to call Samsung to do a possible exchange but he said no guarantees. Since he wasn't able to reproduce the problem at the kiosk he said it's up to Samsung to decide if they are willing to swap it. Pretty annoying and frustrating if you ask me.

    Why yes young Jedi,Nokia wireless charging plate DT-900 and the Tylt VU charger that lets your device sit up at a 45 degree angle so you can still see what messages are coming in and so on while its charging. Both great chargers, 12 volts and it doesn't matter how you put the phone on the charger, it will charge. The Tylt even allows you to put the phone upside down or in landscape mode to charge. I just ordered 2 of the Tylt VU's, 58.99 on Amazon.

    I have the Samsung Wireless Charger and mine charges fine. It stays green even after charging is complete. Do you guys use Power Saving mode while charging?

    I do use power saving mode while charging at night. Do you not? I didn't even think about that being an issue.

    Nope. You should disable it and see if that's the problem...

    I had a lot of problems with the S6 Samsung Charging Pad (I ordered mine direct from Samsung). I was finding the exact same issues as you have stated; waking up in the morning to find the blue light flashing, charge at about 96%. I ended up mailing it back to Samsung for a refund. Many reviewers have found that the phone is actually moving around on its own ever so slightly over a long period of time, which is causing the charging issue.

    Oddly enough, my favorite, and most reliable Qi wireless charger has been the wireless charger introduced with the S4. I've never had any issues with charging and it is always at 100% when I wake up. The design doesn't allow for movement since it curves up on the edges, and there isn't any "searching" for a sweet-spot. These have been my observations. Link below on Amazon.

    I dont have problems with my wireless charger either. only thing i can think of about it moving is because you are getting text messages or phone calls which makes the phone vibrate and of course it will move than. Also this "sweet spot" people are talking about. i dont have that issue either. i put my S6 on the center of the pad and it starts charging after 1-2 seconds...

    I only came on here because i leave the wireless charger on my desk and i woke up this morning and noticed the charger was blinking blue and my phone wasnt even on it. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and the light went away. but i was confused cause i wasnt charging anything.
