How to Get the SwitchLok Adapter to Work with Qi Wireless Charging

September 26, 2019

While we don't openly advertise it, it is possible to use Qi wireless chargers with your phone when it is equipped with a SwitchLok Adapter. The process to do it is a little finicky and we cant expect every customer to get it right. However, if wireless charging is important to you and you're up to the task, it's really not that hard.

Note: we cannot promise that this will work or that it will work with every wireless charger. There is too much variation in case and wireless charger construction to make any promises.

The two key factors for wireless charging to work are:

  1. Your case must not have too thick of a back. Ideally, it will be 1/16 of an inch or less. Our Approved Case List provides satisfactory cases in this regard.
  2. You must align the adapter with the wireless charging receiver in your phone.

The steps to ensure that item 2 is satisfied are as follows.

  1. Plug in your wireless charger
  2. Center the SwitchLok Adapter on top of the charger. The was paper over the adhesive should still be on and facing up
  3. Place your phone face up on top of the adapter and move it in place so that it begins charging

That's it. Once you have found the location that works, simply attach the SwitchLok Adapter in place.
