I wanted to order a few of the wireless chargers so first, I had three of them in my cart. The discount applied to only one. I then removed two of them & ordered one -- that worked fine. I went to order another & it would not apply the discount so I guess it is one unit only.

Are these super cheap chargers any good? I wouldn’t pay $100 for one but is there any quality trade off for a $12/6.47 charger

Don’t know about this brand but the $13 Anker brand chagers off Amazon work flawlessly. I think the Belkin and other premium brand chargers are overpriced. As will be Apple’s.

It works great with the iPhone X. I order a couple more and pulled one apart to build into a car cradle. The circuit board and components were reasonably well put together.

How successful were you? I’ve been considering doing this to retrofit a charging surface to my 2008 Audi. Not had the balls to yet.

Sorry for the late reply. Work has been keeping me from browsing. The horrors! ;)

I haven't built anything as yet. Pretty straightforward though. The board is solid so it should be easy to work with. Just need to create a mount and run a USB cable for power. I need to do similar for my GPS and dash cam. One of these days...

Thanks for the reply. I’ve just bought one of these: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/142787352038 and intend to mount it under my armrests and hardwire it.
