In today’s article we will be looking at an Issue that can happen to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ where you get the error message Wireless charging Paused or irregular charging detected after attempting to charge using a Fast Wireless charger. At first the message of Wireless charging paused will appear on your device when charging fails a few times,after multiple failed charge attempts you will get irregular charging detected.In some cases as well the Wireless charger might work well with older devices but not with the Galaxy S8.

What is causing this Error?

In cases where you are seeing this error you may have a look-alike Fast Samsung Galaxy Wireless charger that’s a knock off that’s not the original that’s sold by Samsung. In such a case you will need to get an original. These devices are usually circulating on eBay. The model I see this happening with is the Samsung EP-NG930, although it might be the same with other models as well.

    I purchased 3 chargers directly from the Verizon store and they say samsung on them model EP-9G930 and they are knock offs ? With the Samsung lable? When I first purchased them they always worked great for a month or so WITH the case on but after aN android up date they quit working unless I remove the case, which is an inconvience. 🙁
