    Brought my limited home yesterday. Absolutely love it with one exception. How do you get this charging pad to work with an iPhone?
    I have the 6s+.

    You'll have to buy a "chip" that allows the iPhone to make use of the Qi charging capabilities. I'm not really sure of any case brands that incorporate a chip in the case itself. I've always bought the chip and installed it in the case currently on the phone. Try this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00H0...g+iphone+6&dpPl=1&dpID=31HXDPN2XML&ref=plSrch

    That should do it. I found issues when the wireless pad wasn't as close as possible to the charging pad. But then again, that just could've been the poor quality of the Spigen case.

    The Spigen works perfect for my iPhone 6. Provides good protection and charges flawlessly.

    I may have received a bad one. It would constantly fluctuate between charge & no-charge. No matter the orientation. But if I removed the case entirely and left only the charging pad plugged in, it would work.

    Could be. I only ordered this one because a few people on this forum also had success and recommended it. If I put it on the drivers side closest to the gear shift, it charges nonstop.

    Do you have a 6 or 6 plus? I have heard the bigger battery on certain large phones (like the plus and a few androids) have had issues.

    6 plus. And now it makes more sense.

    But I've taken to using the USB cord. I find the sound is better when piped directly versus over bluetooth. Though I use bluetooth when listening to my podcasts.

    Got it today. It will not work through through the case in my truck at all. Sending it back. Anyone have one that works through the leather case in the truck?

    Sorry to hear that. Was hoping I was the exception. I'm sure someone will chime in with what works and more importantly, works consistently!
