    Hi.

    A couple of times this week I've placed my 1520 on its wireless charging plate before bed. I've heard the charging 'noise', the phone lights up and the light on the front of the charging pad flashes as normal.

    When I've woken up, however, the battery is completely drained, and the windows button is flashing. After a couple of minutes placed back on the pad the phone restarts - but the time and date has been reset to some odd setting.

    Any ideas? After the first time, I was really careful to place back on the pad straight. Even with the amount of battery I have when going to bed, there's enough juice to last until the morning - so something's shorting the phone out. I've seen a couple of 'not charging' threads, but not one where the life literally drains from the phone overnight.

    Phone's under warrantee.

    Thanks.

    I don't have a wireless plate but what i heard is that when the battery gets full it stops charging. When the battery starts to drain it doesn't recharge the phone unless you pick it up again and put it down on the plate

    To tell you the truth about wireless charging. It actually does harm to your battery.
    It generates alot of heat and heat isn't good for your battery. Wireless charging is still young tech. Don't mean to **** on you purchase but you should steer clear from wireless charging

    Exposing too much heat to the battery will decrease the battery life.

    How does it generate heat, my phones don't even get warm while on the wireless charger. I don't even remember the last time I used the wall charger for any of my phones except the 520

    When I had my Nexus 7 I always used my Nokia wireless charger for charging that as well.

    While my comment wasn't model specific. I don't know how wireless charging affects your other phones.

    On my 920, it would charge to 100%, stop, go down to 95-96%, then charge back up to 100%. That's the way it's supposed to work, whether plug or wireless charging.

    Hmm. Thanks folks.

    I had a 920 and made the mistake of over-using wireless charging - obviously if you keep a battery permanently on charge it will lose its charge memory. However, I never came across any form of charging 'killing' a phone overnight.
