4.0 Nice Upgrade, but no cases allowed

Pretty easy to install, the toughest parts was getting the under side of the armrest loose! Only drawback is that it won't charge through the armrest and an Otterbox case!

1.0 Doesn't work

Just installed. Can't get it to work on my Galaxy note 10. Waste of time and money.

5.0 Works great!!

The chsrging kit worked just a s designed and I like the beep sound it makes to let you know that it's charging

2.0 Doesn't have the strength!

The install is easy but the charger isn't able to charge an iPhone 12 through the pre-existing pad. It works through thinner material but removing the pad and replacing with an appropriate material pushes the solution into not being worth it. I'm having to order a better coil and wire it in myself. For me, it was a waste of money. Hopefully you have a better outcome when you try.

A: No, this is a retrofit kit to update the factory wireless charging module under the factory mat. The original factory mats do not work with iPhone 8 and newer devices as well as comparable Android devices. The kit consists of the charging module, spacers and screws.

Q: Can I purchase this to replace/upgrade the armrest that doesn't have a built in charger? I do have power to the armrest if I can connect it to a USB A plug. Answer this question

A: This system replaces the factory wireless charging module in select 2015-2018 GM vehicles, So its not the whole armrest, you could piece them together and run power to the module, its possible but its gonna take some modifications.
