How thick is the case?
I saw the post above from Seidio saying it wouldn't work (which is very honest of them) but I wouldn't have thought a thin case would stop it working completely unless it is made of certain metals.
The magnetic field is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the charging coils so the effectiveness of charging would decrease very quickly the further the coil is away from the pad but I know others here have found that a thin plastic case didn't stop wireless charging from working although it would slow it down.
