I'm using a magnetic car mount and have the metal plate inside my XS Max Apple leather case. I'm wondering if anyone attached the metal plate to any of those thin cases before. Such as the Caudabe Sheath. Did it fit well?

I use the Pitaka MagMount Qi and the MagCase in mt XS Max... the case has built-in metal pates to allow the magnetic mount to work, and it charges perfectly. I have seen references to the 'add on' metal plates for other cases to allow the magnetic mounts to work... but the obvious objective it to NOT block the charging coil with the metal plate,

Hi, were you able to resolve wireless charging with the magnetic plate inside of the case? I have this and its not charging on iphone 8 plus.

My guess is that the placement of the metal plate is blocking the connection between the coil on the charger and the charging coil in the phone...

It absolutely should work for mounting... but not for wireless charging.

What a company needs to make is a metal plate that goes AROUND the qi charging coil to not interfere with wireless charging but still able to stick with the magnet mounts. This is how Pitaka cases work, they have 2 half moon shaped plates inside. I would love to be able to use a leather case with magnet mount and working wireless charging and that how it can be accomplished.

EDIT: Looks like they DO have rings available for to use both wireless charging and magnetic mounts.
Not sure it would be enough metal to get it to stick through the leather cases though.

I use similar rings and they work perfectly for mounting and wireless charging
