Wireless Charging Issues

Is anyone else running into issues with the wireless charging pad....i.e. it's not charging a phone? I'm trying to figure out if its an issue with the car, or maybe my phone.

Ever since I upgraded to an iPhone 12, the wireless charging pad does not seem to be working properly. Half the time the phone charges on the pad for a minute or two, but then quickly stops and I get the non-charging icon on the console screen (below the phone signal icon, etc). The other half of the time, the car doesn't seem to recognize my phone on the pad at all. No icon appears, and no charging happens.

I have tried the phone with and without case, have moved it all over the pad, and nothing seems to help for more than a minute or two.

I'm in a P400 HSE, running OS 2.0.6 (updated 05 Dec), and I'm using an iPhone 12 with iOS 14.2.1.

Thanks,

I don’t have the OEM wireless charger (it wasn’t even an option on European First Editions) but I use one I brought from Amazon in the same place and in the house. I’ve read loads of reports that iPhone 12 won’t charge on the wireless charger in Defender but it also won’t charge in recent BMW’s Audis, Mercedes, VW’s and many other European cars, oddly the Korean manufacturers don’t seem to have the problem. I suspect it may be an issue with the iPhone rather than the car. Have you tried charger on a wireless charger in the house? I have an iPhone SE and also I haven’t tried it on a new Defender wireless charger. Have you tried any other phone that can wireless charge on the charging pad? Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

i have 5 various brand and form factor wireless chargers in the house. they all work fine with the 12 pro max. just seems to be something wonky with the phone and the pad in the 110. not a huge deal for me, but disappointed it doesn't work.

Well, I guess I'm glad to hear that it's not just a problem I'm having. Misery loves company.

I do use a wireless charger in the house, and don't have frequent issues there. Every once in a while the phone will stop charging, but that's maybe once in 15-20 times on the home wireless pad.

I have not tried the Defender's charging pad with an Android phone....I'll see if I can find a friend with an Android phone and try that. At the least, it might help target the problem down to a phone type coupled to Defender issue for the iPhone 12.

Also not a show-stopper for me, but it's certainly an annoyance for a new car of this price point. 2020 Defender P400 HSE
