Because wireless charging is a joke. slow slow slow. Samsung is marketing wireless charging but the technology is nowhere near wired charging. I'd like to have my storage space back too!!

Who cares if it's slow ? It does keep the charge of my iPhone while driving and listen to Pandora :-)

I didn't get the Jeep wireless charger, because I like to have my phone dash-mounted for visibility and I already had a QI charger. With my Windows Phone, I find the QI charging fast enough.

There was a photo posted on one of the Jeep forums (forget where) that showed the wireless charger assembly, and my comprehension was that it wasn't added to the existing storage tray, but replaced it. So you can't just remove it unless you have the non-charging storage tray to go in its place.

Re: Wireless Charger Pad removal

I'm new to wireless charging and have a (new to me) phone. Samsung Galaxy S5. Have the OEM samsung charging cover. Yes, it's slower. Wireless charging is only about 1/2 an amp and not as efficient as your 2A charger. But I've found that setting the phone on my pad usually will charge from 70% to 100% within 1/2 hr or so, which is fine for me. Plus, charging slower should help keep the battery cooler and last longer. That said, my home charging pad is a koolpad and it does a good job of keeping the phone temperatures down, just barely over skin temp.

I only have the Jeep charging pad b/c it was in the vehicle when I bought it. Big disappointment, but it works. $150 option, and the phone holder won't even fit my wife's phone (note II). If we wanted to make it work, I would wind up taking off the sliders and just have it sit in the box. So, my G5 is about the largest phone that will fit and be usable. Also, phone gets much hotter on that pad; presumably since it doesn't have smart enough technology to adjust charging to keep temperatures down...? But it works, and maintains a charge.

That said: we have AC vents right underneath that stupid thing. Would it have been too much trouble to divert some cool air up and help keep the phone cool? What about replacement sliders to fit wider phones? The compartment itself could handle it. Would be nice if they were adjustable not only front to back, but side to side a bit.

Probably cheaper and better to get your own pad and plug it into the usb port ....
