    Does wireless charging work with the S9+ in a Defender?

    I gave up wireless charging a while ago, because of the heat the charger throws up to the phone, but I was charging through a Defender for about 4 years. I could even lift the phones up about 1/4" and they'd still charge. (And it's only the distance that determines it - the materials used are transparent to the frequencies used in wireless charging.)

    I had a defender on my s9+ for a few weeks and wireless charging was hit or miss. Had to be positioned perfectly and then it would stop charging frequently.

    Works great. Never had an issue with the Defender cases since wireless charging introduced with the GS6.

    I experienced this exact problem when I used the OtterBox case with my Note 8. When I bought the S9+, OtterBox was not even an option i considered this time around.

    If a metal back is used, it must have at least a 'window' of non metallic material to work,located near the qi coil, due to magnetic flux preventing charging through an all metal (aluminum) back .

    And since a Qi coil is about 2" in diameter, that's a serious hole. I'd rather have a solid metal back.

    I hear you, and wish it was possible. I'd rather have an S5 type back I can take off, a user swappable battery and a firm SD card holder and sim, not this 'I hope I don't break it' slide out tray.
    I added qi charging to the old S5 (yes, the part fit just fine inside), and it worked fine.
    These glass backs, and I know I've said it before, is just so they can sell and fix more phones.
    Patiently waiting for the 10. If they use the coming new plastic on the front, they better not make the back glass.
