Wireless charge pad

Anyone else get the wireless chargepad in their X2? Whats your experience thus far? I'm finding my iPhone gets really hot towards the end of the 2-1/2hr weekend drives from Boston to Maine. My iPhone doesn't seem to get as hot on my wireless charge pads at home - wondering if being confined in the armrest bin prevents the phone from keeping cool.

I suspect you'll find it supports faster charging then some of your home chargers and that generates more heat, but the confined space in the armrest really has nothing to do with it.

Works fine on a SGS9.
No excessive heat.

My X2 didnít come with a charge pad, so I sourced one from Amazon. Look up Choetech - they are $19.99 and I have mine sitting in the tray under, not in, the armrest. You can adjust the usb cable with the supplied twisty, to keep the phone (I have an iPhone XR) in place.

Can you link to the one you bought?
