Wireless Charger

So is there any way to make this wireless charger actually *work* in my car? I've tried it with my Galaxy S7 with the case, without the case, with the factory rubber mat, without the factory mat, and only once have I actually gotten it to connect (and that was in the case, with the mat)

Right now it's just a convenient place to hold the phone. I'd really like for it to be a convenient place to top off the charge.

Hi RNCotton,

We regret to hear of this wireless charger concern in your Impala, and apologize for any inconvenience caused! To clarify, have been able to bring this to the attention of your certified dealer?

If it'd be of interest, we'd be more than willing to facilitate a service appointment! Please send us a private message with your VIN, full contact information, current mileage, and preferred dealership if we can be of assistance at this time.

Thank you,

Angela O.

Hi, RN:

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge myself, AND I have the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad, as well.

In my case, it is a home (USB - so I guess I could use it in my car, too - but no place really for it) version. I have my phone in a ZIZO case bought on Amazon. Case is a moot point, but inCASE you were curious...lol, no pun intended...lol.

I have found that the wireless charger, if not setting just so on the pad it will not charge correctly, if at all. Most of the time the latter; not the former.

Luckly, I woke up a couple of times when I did and noticed that my phone must have slightly shifted position from whence it was and stopped charging causing my battery to totally die. Thus, no alarm went off to wake me for work! 😐 Ooops!

I mainly rely on Anker's high-end and well-fitted USB to micro-b cable with a Q3 quick charger (phone is Q2 rated), most of the time.

Cheers!

Cheers!
