Overview

Our take on the Scosche UQ01

Scosche's UQ01 combines the convenience of the MagicMount™ phone mounting system with the functionality of a Qi (pronounced "chee") wireless charging system. Scosche designed this charger to flush-mount in a custom location close to your vehicle's 12-volt power socket. There are modifications involved, such as removing a few panels, cutting out a hole for the charger, and drilling a hole to route a cable. Scosche includes a "T" harness for your vehicle's 12-volt power plug — eliminating the need to cut and splice wiring. Once the mount is installed, you'll be able to charge your Qi-compatible smartphone without searching for that hard-to-find charging cable while you're driving.

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 UQ01 offers a universal fit, and will work for many vehicle applications.

Note: Scosche MagicMount Charge is also available in vehicle specific models for select Dodge/RAM, Jeep, Ford, Chevrolet/GMC, Honda, Toyota, and Tesla vehicles.

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 UQ01 is designed to flush-mount in a variety of vehicles. You will need to make a 3-1/8" x 5-5/16" rectangular cutout with a mounting depth of 1/2" for the unit to flush mount into the opening. The outer dimensions of the MagicMount Charge measure 7-5/8" x 4" with a 1/4" thick top bezel.

Note: You should install the MagicMount Charge at least 10" away from the ignition lock, key fob docking station, or any location where the key fob might be stored while driving. Failure to do so can result in interfere with wireless systems inside your vehicle. In addition, it should not be mounted near the airbag.

Wiring Harness: The Scosche MagicMount Charge includes a 5' power/ground wiring harness which will need to hardwired to the vehicle (Red wire to +12V Accessory; Black wire to Ground). The harness terminates into a USB-C connector which plugs into the MagicMount Charge.

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