Default Samsung Wireless Charging Cases

Just got the wireless charging today, needless to say none of my cases work. I ordered some skins and may go "naked". Did find one case on Amazon that said it fits with Samsungs wireless charger.

What cases are you guys & gals using?


**Mods an we keep this separate from the regular case discussion if possible please? Thanks!!**

The Diztronic case seems to fit with the Samsung wireless charging cover. It's a tight fit but it works. The top of the case is a little bowed.

What other case did you find in Amazon?

Some wireless charging coils are small enough (0.6mm) that you can still use the original back so you could use any case you wished.

They are available on eBay and there are a couple of threads here discussing them so it might be worth considering that option.

That's the case I've found. Waiting for it to arrive. Should be here this weekend.

I'm going to keep the Samsung wireless pad, and order a sensor from one of the online sources, where you can use the original backplate. I'll probably return the Samsung backplate or just hang onto it as a spare.

I like to have a nice fitting case on my phone and I already have a bunch of money invested in cases.

Got a sensor today, but have to play with it. It won't charge through my Neo Hybrid case. But charges without the case.

I've got the Samsung wireless charging back plate and I'm using the otterbox defender case with it. It's a tight fit the first couple times you try to snap the two pieces together but it works great now.
