Check out this wireless phone charger that would provide much easier access than the build in Ford one. I'm not sure how well it works, but the idea is great.

Nice find. Trying to wedge my phone on top of the factory wireless charger can be a challenge sometimes!

Does it charge any faster? The factory one seems to take a long time to generate a full charge.
Plus with the angle the phone is on if you hit a small bump it knocks it off charge.

I never really got the internal one to work that well (for reasons stated previously) and this works well ... i use the usb plug ... it might charge faster if i plugged in the fast charger or bought their cigarette charger plug. But it seems to work fine ...

That's super lame...

I am using this and it works really well ... I found getting my phone in and out of the counsel was tough.

I don't have a phone that is compatible. Seems like a cool addition though.

My iPhone X gets really hot on the charging pad. Charges much better and faster with the cigarette lighter cord. Old school

The charger pad down in that storage cubby is the dumbest part of this entire awesome truck! I don't think I will ever use it.

I like the concept of the wireless charger, just not how it was integrated into our trucks.

Seems like it'd make more sense were it flat, perhaps with some sort of side bolstering to hold it in place. Maybe the next iteration they'll correct that.

it's a bit tight in there. I'm glad they added it but they tried to retrofit it into a space it wasn't design for. Good start but room to improve.
