When I charge my Galaxy S8/S8+ with fast wireless charger, “Irregular charging detected” notification is displayed and charging is stopped repeatedly. Why?

Last Update date : 2017.06.27



Damaged data cable or Un-authorized fast wireless charger may cause unstable charging and “Irregular charging detected” notification pop-up.


Please check your data cable and try again with another data cable and your wireless charger.


If your wireless charger is un-authorized wireless charger, please use Samsung authorized wireless charger.


    * Note 1: Even if “Samsung” Logo is printed or similar product label is attached, it may not be Samsung authorized accessory.


    * Note 2:  Samsung authorized wireless chargers satisfies WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) standard tightly but un-authorized (or imitation) wireless charger may not satisfy the WPC standard and may cause the charging problem.


If the 3rd party wireless chargers satisfy WPC standard, they will work well with Galaxy S8/S8+
