Choetech quick-charge wireless charger

Hi. While I know that Inbay makes that pretty slick looking wireless charging insert for our center consoles, the speed/tech is already outdated, itís $120, and my iPhone XS is slightly larger than the recommended dimensions, so I went looking for something else.

This $20 Choetech fits the bill. I thought Iíd have to secure it to the console, but its rubber back seems to keep it in place so far. Plus, itís quick-charging and has three coils, so the phone can slide back and forth a bit and still find the charge. If I keep it long term, I may make a hole to run the cable.

Also, you need a QuickCharge 3.0 USB adapter for the cigarette lighter.

Run the cable out the passenger side.
In the case it does come flying out, it'won't interfere with your feet, accelerator peddle, etc.

Yeah, Iím actually going to drill out the little hole a bit thatís already under the rubber mat and run the wire. Yesterday I went on a spirited, windy road drive and the charger/phone didnít budge.

I lifted the rubber pad in the bottom of the tray, routed out the hole on the left a bit to allow a USB through, ran the wire, and replaced the rubber pad. I may cut a notch in the pad.
