Will a phone fit flush to the coil in this situation? I'd guess that it would need to be Level with the front lip of the storage area. I'd probably throw a magnet in to keep things from sliding about.a project that I have not managed to find time to finish is installing a wireless charging coil under the rubber insert below the ac controls.
its pretty simple to just use the guts out of a charging pad and connect it to a 12v>5v usb charger and hard wire it to the wires that go to the 12v acc socket.
doing it this way I can just put the coil below the rubber insert so everything looks factory but placing the phone there will allow it to charge.
I don’t have any issue charging my phone using either the manufacturer’s USB cable or wireless via the manufacturer’s fast charge wall wart. Both take just over an hour and a half when the phone is about to shut down. Wireless takes a little longer, maybe ten minutes, but it’s not an appreciable amount so I’d hardly describe it as ‘slow as buggery’.The problem I'd envisage with the implementation of a wireless charging pad into the car is the time it will take to charge the phone. They are as slow as buggery when plugged into an AC wall adapter let alone a car power outlet.
