Hardwiring QI Charger
In case anyone is interested, I've hardwired a "fast charger" and it came out very stock looking, actually even an owner would be hard pressed to notice.
I know some others have installed a charger and just tucked the wire along the center console into the USB socket. That works, but this is more a stock look that you can't notice and works at a fast charge rate as well as the phone hits the sweet spot easily, no playing around to get it to work.
For anyone interested, I disassembled a $18 fast charger off Amazon and using a tap a fuse, 12V car adapter, some wire and foam and parts of a phone case I spray painted, I hooked it up to empty spot on our passenger side fuse panel, but properly (not upside down).
In order to make it stock I needed to take off some panels, some center console pieces, but it was very easy and no professional tools are required, but you won't be able to find a wire anywhere.
Ultimately I did this because I was just putting my phone there anyway, so now it charges but at a fast rate! If you have any questions just ask.
The project cost me $35 CAN
