On the question of cases and wireless charging in general, "it depends".
I have a Galaxy S8 and that charges just fine through a Lifeproof FRE case on one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EMWJ6Z6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
This stand linked (not the one for sale today) also worked for a Nabi that I modded with internal wireless charging (because the charging port fell apart) after I took off the bumpy back.
However, if your case is any thicker (say, one with a built in stand), or has any metal in it, or you have one of these stick on wallets on the back of the case, wireless charging will probably not work.
I can say that I have had much better experiences with the multiple coil wireless chargers than I have with single coil models like this one, but more in terms of getting it lined up to charge easily rather than whether the charger worked once aligned. That said, I also would not buy another single coil wireless charger.
Is "Common Sense" really?

This one? yes, most likely.. this is the same one from 5 below and it cannot charge thru any cases that I own.
I have since bought a samsung wireless charger (i don't own any samsung phones) and it can charge thru my case. I bought another for my mother and it can charge thru her otterbox case.
I do not recommend skimping out on charging equipment, get something Qi Certified.
samsung charger model NG930TBUGUS and PG920IBUGUS works perfectly on:
nexus 6 in standard google case
lg g6 in otterbox defender case (very thick case)
