Overview

Our take on the Scosche CRQ01

Scosche's CRQ01 combines the convenience of the MagicMount™ phone mounting system with the functionality of a Qi (pronounced "chee") wireless charging system. Top it off with the fact that Scosche designed this charger to fit right in the center console location in your Ram, and you've got a charger that looks like it came right from the factory. You'll need to remove a few panels and drill a hole, and Scosche includes the "T" harness for your Ram's wiring — eliminating the need to cut and splice. Once it's in, you'll be able to charge your Qi-compatible smartphone without searching for that hard-to-find charging cable while you're driving.

Convenient and easy to install

Kevin M from Rockford, IL on 2/1/2019

2017 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was very simple to install. The instructions needed a little help, they seemed to cover more than one product possibly. i was able to have it completely installed in less than 20 mins. Unit works everytime, maybe not the fastest charge but works consistently. Looks factory installed. I would recommend this to anyone who has the center counsel to fit it. Phone has to be positioned fairly exact to get a charge but works through my Otterbox case for Samsung S9

Pros: quick easy install works exactly as described

Cons: a little slow on the charging process phone needs to be aligned correctly to make a connection

Great!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in 2017 Ram 2500. Great fit and easy install. Does require you to drill two small holes, but you really can't screw it up. So nice having this in the truck. Works great.

Perfect Fit - 2018 Ram 1500

VMKTX from Cypress, TX on 11/18/2018

2018 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks and Performs like a factory installed wireless charger. Installation only takes about 15 min. Remove three screws to remove top of console and plug into factory plugs to rear of power port. Route wire to rear of charger and your done. Fits my iPhone XS Max with minimalistic case.

Pros: Factory install appearance. Simple plug and play.

Cons: None. Phone location is a little bit hard to grab while driving however space is limited on the console so this is probably the best location.

Features

MagicMount Charge: Scosche has combined the latest Qi wireless charging technology with their MagicMount magnetic mount system for the ultimate solution in hands-free magnetic mounting and wireless charging. The Scosche MagicMount Charge OEM offers vehicle specific applications.

Vehicle Compatibility: This MagicMount Charge OEM model is compatible with the following vehicles:

  • 2009-2012 Dodge RAM 1500-3500 Trucks: includes Laramie, SLT, Limited, Longhorn, and Big Horn premium trim levels with full center console. It is not for use with bench/flip seat models, including ST and Work Trucks.
  • 2013-2018 RAM Trucks: includes SLT, Laramie, Limited, Big Horn, Longhorn, Rebel, and Sport premium trim levels with full center console. It is not for use with bench/flip seat models including ST and Tradesman.

Qi Certified: The Scosche MagicMount Charge has been designated as "Qi Certified" by the Wireless Power Consortium. Qi Certified products have been thoroughly tested by independent laboratories to ensure their safety, compatibility and energy efficiency.

Note: Some wireless charging products may use terms like "Qi compliant", "Qi compatible" and "Works with Qi", but these terms are not the same as "Qi Certified." Products using such terms have not undergone Qi certification testing.

Qi Wireless Charging: Qi (pronounced "Chee") is the global standard for smartphone wireless charging. Wireless charging uses electromagnetic fields to safely transfer power from a transmitting source (such as the MagicMount Wireless Charge) to a receiving device (Qi-enabled smartphones or add-on wireless charging accessories.) to wirelessly charge the device's battery.

Wireless Fast Charging for Apple and Samsung: The Scosche MagicMount Charge delivers up to 10W of charging power, making it compatible with Apple and Samsung Wireless Fast Charging. It is also compatible with other Qi-enabled smartphones that support 5W charging, as well as many other Qi-enabled products.

  • Apple (10W): iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr, iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 8
  • Samsung (10W): Galaxy S9/S9+, Galaxy S8/S8+, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, and Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, Note 9
  • Other Qi-Enabled Smartphones (5W): Google, Microsoft, LG, HTC, and Motorola
  • Other Qi-Enabled Products: Cases, Receivers, and Battery covers

LED Indicator: The LED indicator on the side of the Scosche MagicMount Charge illuminates green during standby and blue during charging.

Magnetic Mount: Not only does the Scosche MagicMount Charge deliver fast wireless charging, it also provides two points of magnetic contact for a solid hold via powerful, rare-earth, neodymium magnets. Scosche includes a large self-adhesive MagicPlate for directly applying it to your smartphone device and includes two small self-adhesive MagicPlates for use with smartphone cases. A MagicPlate Template Guide is also provided to make sure you position the MagicPlate(s) in the proper location.

Note: The included MagicPlate should be installed on your Qi-enabled device to avoid interfering with wireless charging functionality. It is not recommended with use of a wallet case, and should not be used with any hard-drive based devices.

Mounting Options: The Scosche MagicMount Charge comes with a mounting cradle where the Qi wireless charger will install. The MagicMount Charge OEM vehicle specific models are designed to fit perfectly in your compatible vehicle. It replaces the vehicle's factory storage tray in the center console without modification and provides a factory OEM appearance.

Wiring Harness: The Scosche MagicMount Charge OEM includes a 5' T-harness for your vehicle that integrates into your factory wiring. The T-harness has a USB-C connector which plugs into the MagicMount Charge. On the other end of the T-harness are two molex connectors which plug into your vehicle's wiring harness underneath the storage tray.

Safety Protection: Advanced safety features like Foreign Object Detection safeguards your device from overheating and becoming a potential fire hazard.

Yes. You should find the photo of it installed under the "additional" photos on the charging kit's main webpage. If you click any of the additional photos below the main image, it will load as the main image above. You can then click the image a second time to see an even larger view. [ Ryan  Mar 13, 2019 ]  Staff
The phone size should not be an issue. It works with select Android models including the Galaxy S9+and Edge 7. We have not specifically tested the Note 9 but if it does not work we do have a 60 day return period. [ Cosmo  Mar 05, 2019 ]  Staff
I just got mine and have a Note 9. I haven't put it in my truck yet, but I cant see any reason the phone size will be an issue. [ Chadley  Mar 04, 2019 ]
I have a Galaxy 7 with a large case and it fits fine. BTW...this charger works great and looks great also! Could not be happier with the purchase and installation was simple. [ Terry  Jan 04, 2019 ]
If your phone currently fits in that pocket, then yes it will work. [ Hunter  Jan 04, 2019 ]
Yup. That's what I currently have, no issues. [ Thomas  Jan 04, 2019 ]
