Qi Wireless Charger

Has anyone else stumbled on this? May have to order one, seems like a pretty elegant solution and that's where I've been tossing my phone anyway...

I have not seen this, but I think it’s a great idea. Let us know if you install! I’m curious how easy it would be.

Ordered one, I'll report back when it shows up. Looks like they ship from HK so I'm assuming it will be a few weeks.

Looks like it made it into US and is currently seeing the sights at JFK airport. Hopefully it'll arrive this coming week.

Came in today, the pad is pretty much a perfect fit.
It included absolutely no instruction or documentation, but has what looks to be a nice passthrough for power. Somewhere in the disco there is a 3 prong adapter that this will tap right into.

Sent them an email to see if there is documentation, otherwise I guess its time to start figuring out how to pull apart the console and go on a hunt for the right plug.

The lead for the mat seems about long enough to make it from where the 12v adapter is under the arm rest between the seats so I'm "guessing" that may be the intended point to grab power.

Anyone know the easiest way to remove the center console section?

To close the loop, to their credit, I reached out via email and did get a response. The response however was that they have no instructions yet. The offered to fully refund the cost in exchange for making an installation video if I wanted to.

Net net is that I didn't feel like pulling everything apart to figure out what harness it was intended to tap into, but I did install it and it works great.

I removed the least possible bits and pieces from the dash and decided to use an add-a-circuit to piggy back on the "cigarette lighter" fuse in the panel behind the glove box. Also found a got spot to catch a ground relatively near the console itself so only had to route the positive to the fuse panel.

Finding a decent way to route the wires was not difficult at all, it works perfectly, and you'd never know it didn't come with the car.

Great item if you don't mind some minor disassembly and finding your own way to wire it up.
