Last night while charging my note 8 on the Samsung Quick Wireless Charger, and running an alarm clock Screensaver, the phone was only charged to 80%. I made sure that the phone was pressed hard to the charger as my Note 5 would have issues like this if it wasn't seated correctly on the charger. I don't have a case yet for the Note 8 so that couldn't be a factor. Anyone else notice issues with wireless charging? I did notice that occasionally the phone would flash that wireless charging had paused but then it would resume immediately after.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have 3 Samsung wireless charging pads. Here is my experience so far with my new Note 8
Original pad Part # BP-PG92A: wireless charging works just fine even with my Spigen case on the Note 8. Thid id not a fast charge pad.
Most recent fast charge pad Part # EP-950: Same results as above.
Second generation fast charge pad Part # EP-930: Wireless charging does not function at all with the case on. With case off the Note 8 needs to be mounted horizontally on its side to connect. Even at that the phone switches back and forth every few seconds between "charging" and "charging paused" as described in previous post.
A bit frustrating. I will contact Samsung's support for their input.
Same issue. Just received the EP-PG950 from Samsung and no luck at all. Swapped cords, bricks, etc., but no wireless charging. Should there be a light on when the pad is in standby mode? The lights cycle when it is initially plugged in but then nothing...
