    I've been through 2 Samsung oem chargers because it won't charge my phone while I'm using it. The USB doesn't have a tight grip so it stops charging when I'm on my phone. I use this charger for my note 8 too and it does the same. I literally can't touch my devices when I'm trying to charge. Does anyone else have this issue? Thanks!

    Yes I'm having this issue as well. My car charger won't charge unless I restart my phone which makes no since. This is a annoying problem.

    I would make sure there is no pocket lint or anything in the port.

    I've cleaned the connector out, still have to restart my phone to use my car charger.

    Are you on 4.3? I'm noticing the same thing now as well with my car charger. It's been reported by a few users and hopefully it's fixed when they re-push the update.

    You can get the wireless charging pad and charging disc from Amazon for like $30-40 for both. Then you just put the phone on the pad. I have 1 at my desk and 1 in the bedroom. It works great
