Hello
I'm having problems to load my OSTC 4. How I can not properly place to charge . If you move a millimeter , it no longer works ...
Always have the screen on to see if the charging continues .

Very disappointed recharge system

Hi,

We also have a video on how to place the charger: [www.facebook.com] You can see on the charger LED if the unit recharges properly. No need to keep the screen running. Make sure to have a USB power supply with at least 1A of output current in order to power the charger.

regards,
Matthias

Hi.

Wi didn't test so many chargers. If you want to try a non heinrichs/weikamp QI charger you have to remove the backplate to get in close contact to the receiver circuit.

kind regards,

Hello,
i have exactly the same problem.
I have to place it absolut exactly (1mm of move and it doesnt charge)
If not exactly in place the LED flashes quickly green.
I tried different chargers (1A, 2A, an PC with USB 2.0 and USB3.0)
If i remove the backplate it charges ok.
Is there a solution or what charger i have to use?

kind regards
Ansgar

Hi Ansgar,

If it's one of the older OSTC4 (smaller serial 180 or so) then you still have the Qi 1.1 standard. With this, the positioning is a bit tricky. but we'll modify your unit free of charge into the new 1.2 standard (10mm transfer range compared to 4mm) and replace your charger with one of the new models. Please contact us then: info@heinrichsweikamp.com

For both versions, a USB power supply with 2A is recommended and 1A is minimum.

regards,
Matthias

Hi all,

A solution for the position's charger. I made a pad with a 3D Printer.

Claude,

Do you sell this? I am very interested. Even with the fix HW installed it still takes to much time to find the right position.

Claude

is there any chance that you could share the STL file so that interested people could send it to printing service (or order from you if run such service) ? It looks like it is symetric ... but symetric does not really work for me ... and according to the manual - it is not centrally located ...

Best regards

gorcio

Hi all,

Your are right Gorgio it's not symetric as you can see in the picture. The design I made works fine with my computer.

Here is the STL file. I do not take any garantee about the result.
