    I have the exact same wireless charging dock, I find my phone constantly disconnects and reconnects, you don't find that issue at all?

    To be honest, it just arrived yesterday, so I've only used it for about 2 hours as a test. I had no issues with my case on, it just needed to be right in the middle. Once I had it placed with a solid light, I never had any issues.

    I'm guessing alignment is less of an issue on more expensive charging docks.

    If you guys are talking the OEM wireless charging pad, alignment is a little bit of an issue but certainly no deal breaker. The LED lights up blue when aligned and green when charging is complete.

    OK, some times it has connection issues and other times it's fine. I move it around in different placements, but sometimes it doesn't make a difference...I try to make the battery lined up right with the pad as much as possible. Let me know if you have any issues.

    You might have a defective unit. Something has to be pretty goofy proof for me to not mess it up.

    I also got the little TYLT VU in Hot Green and it works fantastic. Like it better then the OEM Samsung model. I always have to place the phone on the Samsung charger twice before it will start charging. The TYLY, first time, every time.

    Likely, for $7 Canadian with free shipping what could I expect I guess.

    Tilt might be a better option. There is also a version for the car. That one has me jazzed.

    One of the best reviews I've read.
    OP should get his YouTube channel and do an actual review.

    I have that charger....it charges way slower than the other wireless chargers

    I plopped my phone on this dock when it was at 42%. After exactly 1 hour, it was at 76%. That's a 34% gain during that hour.
    I haven't used this charger much (haven't needed to!), so I'm not sure if that's good or bad compared to other chargers. Again, this is the first time I've actually paid attention to the charging rate, so I can't even provide you with an average charge rate until I have more data, but that's what I have so far.
    I haven't noticed any disconnecting issues in that hour, and I'll note that this is just plugged into my laptop USB, not the wall.

    Hmmmm, maybe I need to test it again...idk why mine was so slow
    I left it overnight and it didn't even fully charge my phone
    I have 2 of those chargers, but I'll use them mostly for emergency backups
    I have an actual wireless charger that works well

    It's not impossible that you got a dud. Amazon.com has limited reviews for this unit, but Amazon.ca has MANY reviews. Most are good, but it looks like a small fraction are duds.

    What do you mean by "actual" wireless charger? One that you charge ahead of time, then it charges wirelessly? If didn't already have an portable USB battery charger, I'd definitely consider getting a portable one that charges the device wirelessly.

    I should have worded it properly. I meant name-brand wireless chargers as opposed to the cheap chinese ones

    I've had my S6 for 2 days now, and I'm still configuring it and installing apps, but from what I've been seeing so far it's been a really good phone. I had to exchange the first one because I ordered it shipped from Best Buy and the home key had a slight smudge (didn't know if that would affect the fingerprint scanner or not). They were great about it and finished setting it up for me. So far after initially charging it, have had great battery life. I haven't really used it a lot except for a few calls and about an hour of screen time, but right now the battery's reading 10 hours of usage (about 67% power remaining) and approximately 19 hours left! I'd say that that's some decent battery life. Of course I'll have to see how it goes once I start using it more, but so far so good.
