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.
The problem is not that the case is to thick for charging. It is that the backplate makes the phone to thick to fit.
