What do I do if my phone is not charging?

If the status light on the charging pad is lit orange or is turned OFF, then your phone is not charging.  Below are troubleshooting tips in case you encounter this issue.

1.  Confirm that your phone supports Qi wireless charging.  If your phone is not compatible, it will not charge on the charging pad.

If you have a case on your phone, try removing the case to see if it is interfering with the charging.  The charging pad supports cases up to 3 mm thick when charging.

Ensure that there are no metal items between your phone and the charging pad.  If you have any magnetic casing or magnetic mounting plates on your phone, these will interfere with charging.

Check the placement and orientation of your phone on the charging pad.  It only supports portrait orientation charging.  The base of your phone should be placed flat against the base of the charging pad.  The magnetic charging coils in the pad are aligned at the center of the pad.  Make sure your phone is aligned correctly.
