    Anyone else experiencing wireless charging issues with their Mozo leather back cover? I'm finding when charging on my JBL speaker, the unit is only maintaining its charge. It's not charging to capacity. I've tried placing it in different positions with no effect. I'm not seeing this issue when using my Nokia Wireless Charging Pad.

    How well does the 950XL charge on the JBL when the stock Microsoft case back is used?

    Sounds like it's a problem with the JBL speaker, not the cover. Could the output be different than the pad?

    Edit: Also what he asked ^

    Perfectly. No issues. I've emailed Mozo with the question this morning.

    Not sure if the output is different but no issues when using the stock black cover.

    I've noticed with my wireless qi charger in work out only seems to maintain charge but every now and again the battery suddenly jumps up in percentage by a big number. It's as if the charging isn't being reflected in real time.

    It's fine on the quick charger though your can watch it go to by percentage lol

    This must be why wireless charging is so bad on my phone. It was around 20% when I went to bed last night but after 7.5 hours on the charger it was still only 89%.

    I've contacted Mozo but havent had a response yet. I'm finding positioning different angles does seem to have some affect. Keep the unit up higher so that the camera circle isnt raising the unit off the surface of the charger. On a side note, I purchased a Choetech USB-C rapid charger and the thing is awesome! I'll be posting a review soon but I highly reccomend this thing. Fully charged my phone in 1hr!

    I got one for my 950. Even plugged in, I couldn't keep a charge or even GET a charge. It was crazy. I put the stock back on again, and things are working normally.

    I emailed the seller this morning. :(

    Thanks for this thread. I will be getting my Mozo leather cover brown early January and will do some detailed testing as well. Especially now that I have to fight with QI charging problems in regards to 3 coil chargers (2 coils get activated and overheat the phone = slow charge).

    Wireless charging works fine for me on a $13 QI charger I bought from Amazon.

    The Mozo back is thicker than the stock, so that might be what is causing the problem for some of you. Most QI chargers only transmit upto a few mm, the extra thickness may be a problem for some. THe coil is located in the middle to lower area on the cover, so positioning it along there would give you the best efficiency in coupling with the charger's coil.

    I use my cognac Mozo cover with:

    Custom car QI holder (using a $0.79 coil from eBay).
    $2.49 delivered (from China to UK!) hockey puk style charger.
    7.99 delivered 3 year old generic QI charger.

    I wonder if the issues are affecting the expensive and official junk??

    I keep my wireless charger at work now, only got my Mozo cover on Saturday so gave it a try when I saw this thread

    I am using an Easychee charger from USB 2.0 plugged into laptop docking station.

    Put it on there with 77% and in less than 1 minute i noticed the light changed colour on the charger and phone reads 100%.
    Rebooted and battery was back to 76%.
    Just put it on the charger again to see what happens.

    Seems to charging OK now, even if slow. from 13.17 to 14.51 it went from 76% to 84%.
    After a reboot it still says 84%.

    Will see if it gets to 100%.

    I'm having no charging issues whatsoever with my Lumia 950 mozo case / cover & my Nokia DT-903 charging plate. It's working just the same as my original back cover.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with the cover + QI charging! Could you maybe connect the Easychee (I am using it too - 4 hrs full charge with 2A power adapter) to a USB power adapter and check if it charges faster ?

    Also how about heat ? Is the phone / charger setup getting hot or rather warm only ?

    Tnx in advance :)

    Great news :) How long does a full charge take you with this setup ? Round about 3:30 to 4:00 hrs ? Tnx in advance

    I can try direct with usb adapter when I am back in the office on Wednesday.

    To be honest I didn't really charge the phone wirelessly before Mozo cover so I can't tell if this is what makes it charge slower than my 1520 or if in general there is difference in the new circuits chasing a slower charge rate.

    The phone doesn't get warm while charging on the Easychee and it maintained a solid connection after the initial hiccup...i even used it a few times without removing from the charger and it maintains a connection.

    Cool :) If you reach about ~4hrs total charging time (0-100%) then one can safely say that this combo (cover / charger) is working really well.
    When it gets hot then charging usually becomes super slow - like 6+ hours. I measured that from 37C display surface temperate on the device throttles charging speed by 50%.

    Equals: cool = all good = should be charging rather quickly.

    Having checked the charging behavior in detail I believe that MS can even reach 3:30hr by firmware updates which is then the limit of the chosen low speed QI standard (5 watts maximum).

    From 10% battery life to 100% it takes approximately 3hrs 15mins.

    Thanks a lot! Thats perfect charging behavior then. Hopefully the Nokia DT-903 / MS DT-904 will be available soon in Europe.

    I have not received my leather battery cover from Mozo yet, by I have tried charging my 950 with a case on and it worked. The case is one that has two layers, a soft rubber layer with a hard plastic layer that goes over the top. I did not think it would charge since it is so thick, but it works just fine with the case on, so I expect that the Mozo battery cover should work since it is thinner. It could be the coils on the battery cover are defective, but since it works with the Nokia wireless charger, my guess is that it comes down to the charger. I am using the Scudo Qi Wireless Charger that I bought from Amazon.

    I am now not having any issues charging my XL with the MOZO brown leather back on the upright stand I'm using from CHO. On some of my older wireless chargers like my Nokia pad, I find placing it a little higher on the pad so that the camera circle isnt on the pad which does raise it up a bit.
