JIMMYCASE iPhone Wallet Cases Work with Wireless Chargers

Can you use an iPhone wallet case with a wireless charger?

Yes, you can use an iPhone wallet case with a wireless charger.

We have tested JIMMYCASE iPhone wallet cases with a variety of wireless chargers and they work well. As the credit cards add extra material between the back of the iPhone and the charger, there are some adjustments to make.

  • The case works well for wireless charging with up to three (3) cards in the elastic wallet pocket.
  • Metal cards or cards with a metallic layer block the charging signal and may make it unusable.

Will wireless phone chargers damage credit cards?

We've been using wireless chargers with JIMMYCASE wallet cases for years and have had no problem with our credit cards. However, phone hardware manufacturers do recommend you keep magnetic stripe cards away from wireless chargers.

Samsung Website: "please ensure that any magnetic cards have been removed from the case to avoid any damage to your magnetic cards."

How does wireless charging work?

Wireless chargers use electromagnetic induction to transfer energy from the charger to a special receiver on the back of your iPhone. Power is fed into an induction coil in the charger, creating a magnetic field. A receiving induction coil in the iPhone takes the magnetic field and converts it into power the phone (Wikipedia Inductive Charging).

More Science of Wireless Charging

If you want to know more about the science of electric charging for iPhones and small devices (toothbrushes) or large devices (electric cars), the video below is a solid overview.

Our Test Charger

We have been using a Yootech wireless charger with our cases and found it works great. Our most current Yootech charger (currently $13.99 on Amazon) is pictured below. It's compatible with JIMMYCASE iPhone card cases for iPhone 13/13 Pro/13 Mini/13 Pro Max/12/SE 2020/11/XS/XR/X/8 with latest iOS System.

Why are your cases so expensive? It worries me people have wireless charging capabilities on a case at this price range should have integrated enhanced wireless charging capability.

On the other hand, I have a new iPhone 13 Mini in a full leather case, with three credit cards in it. It charges well, and does not seem to have any effect on the credit cards. Having said that, the phone, and the case, get more than a little bit warm to the touch. Since I know that heat is the main enemy of any electronic device, I now take the phone out of the case for charging. Better safe than sorry.

I bought an iPhone 13 pro and the case doesn’t work with any of my wireless chargers with no cards in it

I bought a case for the 13pro and have tried 8 different chargers and none will wireless charge the phone in the case even with no cards in it.
