Important note: Optimal position for Wireless Qi charging

Authors list

Some phones need to be positioned in a specific place for the Qi charging to be reliable.


If you do not place the phone in this position one of three things will happen:


1)    Your phone will not start charging
2)    You phone will start, then stop, then start charging again and make a beep and light up. If charging overnight and you’re a light sleeper this may wake you up
3)    Your phone will start and then stop charging. If charging overnight your battery may not be 100% charged in the morning


Below we have listed some of the most common phones on the market with images of how they are best placed on the charger.
