Samsung announced its new flagship Samsung Galaxy S10 series, which contains four models, S10, S10 Plus, S10 5G and S10E. Their differentiated price reveals the difference in technologies they featured. Good to know, some of the techs treat them equally, such as wireless charging and Face Recognition. If you are interested to know whether your Galaxy S10’s wireless charging can work with a phone case, you should continue to read.
Can the Samsung Galaxy S10/ S10 Plus be able to wireless charge with phone cases?
The short answer to this question is Yes. Qi standard is a method of inductive and resonant charging which works at farther distances than just directly from the transmission point. The Wireless Power Consortium says that “With inductive charging, the charge passes between a transmitter and receiver coil placed closely together, usually only separated by the outer casing of the two devices (<7mm).” With resonant charging, “the transmitter can detect and charge existing Qi receivers at greater distances (up to 45mm).” In brief, a qualified wireless charger can charge your Galaxy S10 efficiently, even in a thick protective case. But the case can’t be made out of metal.
Qi wireless charging system consists of two parts, a transmitter and a receiver. If the case is made out of metal, it might prevent the transmitter to send the signal to your phone’s receiver. Even a small square metal plate sometimes can cut down the wireless charging.
Don’t worry. Most of the phone case sellers will list on the info page whether the phone case supports wireless charging. The first thing you should do is to choose a qualified wireless charger.
