Buyer Beware: Otterbox does NOT work with wireless charging

Just an FYI. I picked up an Otterbox Defender for $20 at Walmart yesterday for my iPhone 12. Despite saying it works with "most" wireless chargers the fact is that it does NOT work with any of them, except maybe their own.

I tried it on a Logitech Powerd stand, a Onn Qi Charger, and two different generic Qi battery packs that I had received from promos. Was at Verizon today and they had a few Qi chagers on their demo phones and wasn't able to get any of them to work either. . Phone didn't even recognise they were connected. They all work without the case.

I have read a few places, that the iOS 14.3 beta release is fixing some problems with the Qi chargers.

Too thick in the back, I would guess.

Shave the middle of the back of the Otterbox.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
