Charge Your Galaxy Phone Wirelessly

The Samsung Wireless Charging Pad (sold separately) lets you charge your phone simply by placing it on the charging pad. The Wireless Charging Pad uses Qi Inductive Charging Technology. This is what eliminates the need to attach a charging cable every time you want to charge your phone. In most cases, wireless charging works without removing the phone's case or cover. You can still use your phone while charging, and it is always available to answer a call or text message without having to unplug.

Charge Wirelessly

The indicator light on the front of the charging pad may work differently depending on the phone or the wireless charging cover being used.

  1. Plug the charging pad's wall charger into a wall outlet.

  2. Place your phone on the charging pad with the screen facing up. 

  3. Plug the other end of the charger into the back of the charging pad base. The indicator light on the base will flash blue, green, and cyan when you first plug it in.

Indicator Light Identification

The indicator light alerts you to the wireless charger's status.

If the indicator light does not work as described, disconnect the charger from the wireless charger and reconnect it. The indicator light may work differently, depending on the phone or the wireless charging cover.

    Color Status
    Blue When charging
    Green When fully charged
    Cyan When charging at low power (less than 5V2A)
    Flashing Blue When not charging properly due to the phone's position on the charger
    Off When the mobile device is removed from the wireless charger or when the wireless charger is not connected to a power outlet

Troubleshooting

  • When the phone is not placed on the charging surface properly, or depending on the location of the phone's wireless charging coil, your phone may not charge properly.

  • Wireless charging may not work properly if you have attached a thick case to your phone. If your case is thick, remove it before placing your phone on the wireless charger.

  • When a headset is connected to your phone, place it in a landscape position on the wireless charger. If you place the phone in a portrait position, it may not charge.

  • If you use the wireless charger in areas with weak network signals, you may lose network reception.
