    So I'm charging my iPhone 8 with the Mophie charger that Apple sells. For some reason every minute or two I heard the charging "bong" sound like it's reconnecting. So this isn't my first time charging a phone wirelessly and usually that means it's off-center. Not in this case, the iPhone is dead center. I've tried repositioning it and it continues to display this behavior. Anyone else having this issue?

    Could be a faulty charging coil in the phone, try another phone and see if you get the same result.

    I just signed up to post about this same issue. It's quite annoying. My Samsung S7 charges fine on the pad but the iPhone 8 reconnects every few minutes. It also charges very slowly compared to the Samsung. Edit - I'm using a different charger base.

    I know Apple products are a little wanky with non-Apple approved products. Are you using one of the ones they sell?

    Not in a case.

    I tried a different wireless charger and it's doing the same thing. The only thing I'm doing right now is an iCloud restore so it's using a lot of battery so maybe it's dipping as it's charging and reconnecting? No idea.

    In the middle of several books.
    iCloud restore explains it, in my opinion. I doubt if it will make the noise while idle and charging.

    My iPhone 8+ in the Apple silicon case hasn’t had any issue charging on the Belkin Boostup pad I bought for it.

    I have my 8 Plus in a Casemate Karat Case and it charges in the Belkin Boost Up fine as well.

    I just created a new thread before I read this one, but I'm having similar problems with the Belkin Boost Up as well.. Don't know what to do, already sent a message to Belkin support...

    Take it back and get the Belkin. Works great.

    My phone did that when iCloud restore was happening. Charged on the Samsung pad all night and never made a peep.
