DIY wireless phone charging

Post by NitramA » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:27 am

I’ve just bought a usb wireless charging pad from Amazon and have plugged it into the second usb socket.
It all works fine, even charging through my case.
I’ve gone for a textured surface for the pad but there is still the chance for the phone to move around a bit and come off the charging zone.
After a bit of investigation I notice you can easily lift out the rubber mat that sits in the forward centre console area and there is a fair amount of room in there.
This led me to think that maybe I could fit the Volvo wireless charging mat and somehow mod it to take my wireless charger.
Anyone done anything like this?
Have a feeling that the cost of the genuine Volvo mat will negate any possible savings/fun factor.
