Gear VR not connecting to the charger

Asked: Mar 09 2018 | 11:20 pm EST 1136 Views 1 Answers

Hey guys, I'm new here.
I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this problem.
Gear VR doesn't recognize the charger when I hook it up on S8. I've had S7 and S7 edge before and due to the fast battery drain and the heat problem, I had the GVR plugged into the charger so it doesn't take power from the phone's battery. Worked perfectly fine.
Now I've got S8 and when I plug the GVR into the charger, nothing happens. Has anyone had the same problem with the S8 on GVR?

Hmm I have not tried that. And of course now I no longer have an S8 or N8 to try with. I DID used to sometimes plug in while using my Daydream, without issue. BUT there we are not talking pass-thru.
