Nice list. How much thicker is it?

The wireless battery cover is a little thicker than the regular battery cover, but even with the cases on I don't really notice much difference. If anything, the Note 3 is so slim that having a tiny bit more thickness makes it easier to hold and more secure in the hand IMO.

I have this one, and the one I have does not fit with the Wireless cover. Perhaps you got a slightly larger version.



I don't have this one, but it doesn't look like it would fit.

Would you mind posting pictures of your phone in these cases?




These two are actually the same case from two different vendors, and they fit very well.

I own all of the cases except for the Diztronic. I included it on the list because on another forum I have seen pics of this case (the glossy clear) on the Note 3 with a wireless battery cover, and the poster was pleased and claimed that it fit fine. I have also read that the black matte fit as well.

It's hard to tell from pics whether a case will fit or not. I bought several cases before buying the wireless battery cover. After buying it, none of the cases came close to fitting, except for the Caseology TPU Retro Flex Series which fits pretty well. (FYI: The Caseology TPU Carbon Fiber does not fit). I will take pics over the weekend, but I am pretty pleased with the fit. All four corners are nice and tight, and lip is raised all around the screen. The bottom lip is slightly less raised than the top and sides - but it is still clearly raised above the screen so you can lay your phone front side down. The fit around the camera lens is slightly raised, so the camera lens is recessed and you can lay your phone back side down.

As you mentioned, the bumper cases are the same and they do fit well, but I don't like them due to how slippery the sides are. What I look for in a case is slimness and having a good grip, which is why glossy TPU cases are my favorite and why I am using the Caseology Retro Flex Series. The fit is decent, it's slim, and it provides a great grip. I find matte/polished/smoothed TPU, hard plastic, and aluminum/metal all too slippery.

I don't have this one, but it might fit because it appears to be a much softer and bendy plastic.

No, they didn't post a pic so I can't vouch for the Tech21. It's frustrating when some people say a case fits and others say the same case doesn't fit.

*Edit: As of 3/21/14 I have seen pics of both the Diztronic Matte Black and Tech21 cases fitting.

Please see the first post in this thread for the most recent updated list of Note 3 cases that fit with the wireless battery cover. The list will be updated when new info on cases become known.

Perhaps you and I have different definitions of "fitting" because neither one of these cases comes close to sitting comfortably with the Qi back on. I have both cases and would be glad to post pictures to prove this.

Can you post the pictures you saw or provide a link to them. I suspect that either

1) It wasn't the Qi back, but rather some third part insert with the standard back.
2) They didn't really fit, but you couldn't tell from the picture
3) Someone had forced the cover on and then quickly taken a picture before it popped off again.

I would be glad to be shown to be wrong, but I have personally tried both of those cases, and they are just too small. Both are stiff plastic and form fitting on the stock GN3.

According to the posters, the pics are of the Note 3 with the wireless battery cover with the following cases, and they describe the fit in detail. In contrast, as with your experience, other posters have also said that the Diztronic Matte Black does not fit. Very odd.

Finding a case with a belt clip that will fit the Samsung wireless back cover is a PITA. I'm using a charging coil that fits under the regular back cover so I can use my seidio case but that thing heats up my phone to 112 F!!!

Trident Kraken ams fits decent. The bottom flap for the charging port doesn't fully close but otherwise ok. I also have a tempered glass screen protector, so that would have some impact as well. It does include a belt clip

Signed up just so I could chime in and verify as I just got the wireless charger and back cover.
Of course my Baliistic MAXX for the Note 3 no longer fits *sigh*
I came across the Trident series and especially the AMS, so I emailed the company about the fit.
Unfortunately, none of our cases are designed to fit with the wireless charging back plate. I apologize for the inconvenience.
So that was disappointing, yet I came across this thread as well as a few videos reviewing the AMS and watched as the reviewer placed it on a wirelesss charging mat...*sigh*
So I guess the verdict it wasn't designed to, but it DOES fit the slightly bigger back plate?

Cheers.

Yeah, it most certainly wasn't designed to work with the Wireless charging back. But it works for most part. It is a tight fit and the charging flap doesn't fully cover. But if you want heavy duty protection and wireless charging back then afaik, this is your only option. If you want to use third party wireless receiving pads(the ones that sit between the battery and back cover then more cases will fit)

I took my Otterbox case and simply removed the inside back half of the inner shell. The rubber flaps for the charging port and headphone jack are loose, but the phone itself fits snug inside with help from the rubber outer shell.

I'd like to find a TPU case that is confirmed to work/fit around the charging back, but think outer bumpers may be the only other choice.
