What wireless chargers do people recommend for the Note 8? I like the look of the official Samsung convertible wireless fast charger, but if I can get something similar for less than than the official $129 then that would be good. Lots of different options on Aliexpress, but does anyone have a specific model/seller to recommend?
I have encountered a problem with the Note 8 whilst using the earlier, 2016, official Samsung wireless charging pads (EP-NG930). These are the same size as the latest charging pad (EP-PG950) and available for less than $100. We have two of these and they worked well with the Note 7 and S7E.
But every time I tried to charge my new Note 8 on those chargers, the wireless charging would constantly start and then immediately pause in a cycle. This happened with both of the two chargers - case on/off, vertical/horizontal.
In desperation, I reluctantly purchased the newest convertible model (EP-PG950) and it works fine.
Hat's off to JB Hi-Fi. I spoke to the in-store Spark sales guy that I bought the phone off and he would not let me try the new Sammy charger, saying it might be a software issue. "Wait and see"!!! WTF??? Lazy pr*ck!
So popped downstairs to JB Hi-Fi and the sales guy there ripped the cover off one and bingo. Worked fine and handed over my card for $129.
Going back to JB tomorrow for another.
yea there is definitely something wrong with the note 8 and the EP-PG930 wireless charger, they are not working correctly together, damn you samsung
the note 8 is working with a much older wireless changing pad fine.
