USB port output

Hi,

Can anyone here tell me what is the output of the USB port under the armrest? Can it charge phones?

Apparently different cars have different USB ports. Mine is under the armrest, on the north side of the storage compartment. Some people have them just over the cupholders. I also got 2 USB-C ports for the back seat.

I don't know the amperage, but it's the USB port I use to charge my iPhone XR without any issues.

Little point in that, because you can simply plug an Apple charger cable into the USB port and use it to charge your phone. Additionally, from examples I’ve seen, I doubt that a wireless charger will lie flat in the storage area by the USB port. But that depends on what may be available in your locality.

Yes. In fact most of the aftermarket solutions have the wireless charging pad under the armrest but a USB plug that goes into the storage under the armrest.

Ah sorry, I misread "where" instead of "what"
