Is there a wireless charger that is better for phones with THICK cases?

My wife has an S7 and finally got a case she likes but it's too thick and does not charge wirelessly using Samsungs newest charger.

In lieu of getting another case with less pockets, is there a wireless charger that is more powerful that can zap through the case? Any ideas? Thanks!

It's hard to predict which charger will be powerful enough, but I am using this one from Choetech (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C40OG22) which works better than the Samsung-brand charger.

I have a Samsung Note5, and I use a Caseology case, which has 2 layers on the back (soft TPU and hard polycarbonate) so it's quite thick. With the Samsung charger, I get about 50% success, but the Choetech works every time.

Forgot to mention that this is the case I use with my phone: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013TZYIUK. The Choetech charger works 100% of the time. The "working zone" is small, so I have to place the phone quite precisely. My phone does beep when it hits the spot.
