    If that phone is Qi wireless compatible set it on the pad and push the Qi button. If you have a case it may not work, also you will have to move the phone to the sweet spot. Mine is all the way forward and all the way to the left.

    The Qi charger in these trucks is absolutely worthless. Takes forever to charge 5% and the phone gets extremely hot

    Mine works fine. I use it when driving all the time. My S8+ works well with it. It does get toasty though.

    Maybe I’ve got a bad one then. But I’ve read several posts of people have the same issues

    My old S4 and now J7 with the above adapter work just fine in the Qi charger. The J7 is in a jelly case and the S4 was naked. Yes it warmed up but the phones still work fine after 3 years of daily charging in the truck.

    Maybe mine just doesn’t work as it should. My wife and I both have iPhone 10. I have a silicone case and she has no case. It took both phones about an hour to charge maybe 5 or 6%. I just use a cable to charge it now. No big deal
