Hey all -

Ive been noticing since I got my car last month that placing my phone in the wireless charger, it will never stay charging. every 10-20 seconds , it will disengage and then reengage charging. with or without a case on it ( and the case I have is quite thin )

Anyone else having that same issue? / have a resolve for this?

Appreciate any replies.

I haven't had any issues with my S21+. What phone do you have?
iPhone 12 Pro - I have been searching and a bunch of people on reddit have had the same issues. even without a case it is something happening. Possibly the phone is too deep in the pocket.

Maybe try holding it an inch higher to confirm it keeps charging, then put something non metallic in the slot to keep it at that height.

i have an Iphone 12 pro max and mine NEVER charges unless I place it in upside down or holding it up like half an inch. I think it just has to do with the charger not aligning with the conductive coil in the phone.

yeh most likely. I have this 3m foam tape, i may layer it at the bottom of the charger to where it would be level with the plate for charging alignment, if that works, I will take photos of what I did.

One thing I noticed that if there's any magnetic stuff on your phone case it won't charge.. Wouldn't this be your case at all?

If need be, you can pull the phone holder straight out so you can get a better look at the bottom on the hold area.

Here are some pics of what I mean:
Netbook Hood Gadget Bumper Automotive exterior
Building Fixture Sky Composite material Gas


Just have to pull it straight up, against the back of the storage area. Might want to open the center console armrest first before doing so.

Yes. I placed a piece of styrofoam in the holder and it works fine now. iPhone 12 Pro Max

On the cellphone on top drag down and click on clear then on setting go to battery and device care start scanning and it will close any open apps then click on memory and clean thats all and restart your cellphone and then put it back on your car wireless charger

Well, being that people with thin/no cases are having issues- I would assume something as bulky as an otterbox case will instantly have an issue such as that.

I took off my cellphone case because the wireless charger on the car was made a little to far back so i suggest to buy a slim case and try it again

Mine tried to melt my phone yesterday...

I guess I am just going to disable it and use it as a holder...
That happened to my cellphone that when i changed it it got hot i find out the people have to many apps open in the back ground and not going to settings on the cellphone and on Battery device care to scan the cellphone that would clean up your cellphone and close all open apps and then click on memory and scan it also once your done put your cellphone back to the charge and let it charge an i guarantee you it wont get hot anymore

Listen up everyone im 56 years old im consider a baby boomer at my generation if notice that today generation also 80, 90 and 2000 gen, are not paying attention to todays technology where everything comes with manual and instructions all they do its buying, open box and toss it in the side or throw it away, its so true what the famous scientists said "quote" "I fear the day when the technology overlaps with our humanity. The world will only have a generation of idiots." Albert Einstein
