Charging your device with a wireless charger

You can purchase a Qi-certified wireless charger to charge your device wirelessly.

If you use your device while charging, the charging speed may become slower or even stop to protect the battery. The use of some applications while charging may disable charging or affect the charging function. For example, using the camera during wireless charging may cause static noise on the image.

Be sure to remove any screen or phone covers when using the wireless charging function.

Note the following:

  • Do not put any metal parts between the device and the charger, due to risk of heat injury.
  • Do not put any credit cards on the charger, since they may get demagnetized or broken.

Note

  • If your device is incorrectly placed on the wireless charger, charging time will increase significantly.
