Wireless Charging

It is so simple to use wireless charging, it only takes one step! But before you start, just keep this in mind: While charging, the phone and the charger may become hot when using wireless or fast charging. This does not affect the phone's lifespan or performance and is in the phone's normal range of operation.

To charge your phone wirelessly, place the phone on top of the wireless charging station (not included).

The charger may stop charging if the battery becomes too hot.
