    Anyone have any luck finding an adapter that lets you wirelessly charge your iPhone? I am sending back the Bezelel adapter I bought on Amazon. It does not charge through a case (heavy duty defender or cheap plastic one) nearly impossible to disconnect the charging insert while in a case, in fact it tore after about 5 days of use. And it would never fully charge and get knocked offline while in charging mode.

    Let me know if you've found something that works. Thanks.

    That's the one I just sent back. Doesn't charge through a case, very difficult to plug in while in a case and tore within the first week.

    If you're willing to shed your old case- I bought this model and it works great. The only issue I have noticed is if the phone is too far to the right in the tray, it won't charge- it will just blip back and forth from charging to not charging. That only happened once. The case is thin which I prefer.

    I'm not using a case. I've just attached it to the phone with clear packing tape.

    I'm hoping the iPhone 7 has qi charging built in.

    Apple will probably develop their own wireless charging standard, knowing them...

    After writing a lousy review on Amazon, the company sent me an email offering to send me the charging case free of charge in exchange for removing the negative review. I agreed and it showed up today. The case works great with the charging pad in the Tacoma. It also seems much better built and sturdier. Looks like I found a winner.

    Ok, I am having an issue with my wireless charger. I use the Spigen qi charging case for the iPhone 6s. Sometimes it works sometimes it just blinks green and orange. I am starting to think its the truck. When I put the phone down on its own wireless charger it has zero issues. Is there a trick to the truck charger?

    I put it far to the right with the home button facing left right up to the front edge. It works for me.

    Has anyone found an iPhone6 Qi charging case that also allows you to charge your phone with an existing lightning charger when you're not in the truck?

    It would be nice if I could still quickly use my long charging cables without taking off the Qi charging case when I'm not in the Tacoma... And/or avoid buying Qi charging docks for work/home for the time being.
