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.

Though I found Samsung wireless charger in the category of the best wireless ones but I think RAVPower is a better option. You can also explore some more good options here ( https://www.idaptweb.com/best-wireless-chargers/ ). In addition, you are looking for an affordable option then I would recommend you to go with TechMatt. On the other hand, if you consider the wired ones then we are using Anker's Power Mat and it is working fine for our Android phones. However, if the thickness of your phone's case is more than 5mm then I would recommend you to go with Seneo as it has more than 2 million satisfied users around the globe. However, both of them are not wireless ones.
