Add wireless phone charging to your ride
Brandmotion's FreedomCharge charging kits give you the ability to charge your phone wirelessly on the go. Brandmotion designed the universal FDMC-1210 wireless charger kit to enable you to install the charging mat where you want it in your vehicle. Drill a few holes, connect a couple of wires, cut the included mat to size, and you'll be able to charge your Qi-compatible smartphone without searching for that hard-to-find charging cable while you're driving.
How it works
Once you've installed the charger in your vehicle, simply place your smartphone on the non-skid charging mat, and you're good to go. The inductive charging system's LED shows that the phone is charging — once the battery is topped off, the charger will trickle power to the phone as needed. If you don't have a phone that's Qi-compatible, you can select one of Brandmotion's Qi adhesive coils or Qi-compatible phone sleeves, which work with this charger.
You'll have to do a little work
To get the charging system in place, you'll need to select a location for the charging system, such as a center console tray or storage pocket. Then, you'll have to remove some panels, do a little drilling, trim the charging mat and charger platform, and wire the charger into your vehicle's electrical wiring. Brandmotion created explicit instructions for three different mounting applications, as well as a drilling and mat-cutting template to help the system fit in its chosen location.
You can use Posi-Tap connectors to tie the wires into your system, if you prefer not to cut and solder them. To save you some installation time, Brandmotion also offers a T-harness that works with vehicles that offer a 12-volt accessory or "keyed on" power outlet. The final result is a seamlessly integrated phone-charging system in your car or truck.
This charging system will require permanent modifications to your vehicle's console or storage tray. These modifications aren't visible upon the completion of the installation.

More details on the Brandmotion FDMC-1210
Qi Wireless Charging Installer Kit: Add Qi wireless charging functionality to your vehicle, with Brandmotion's Qi Wireless Charging Installer Kit (FDMC-1210). The kit includes Qi wireless charging module, mounting bracket, trim-to-fit non-slip mat, power/ground harness, and mounting hardware. Add a new level of convenience to your vehicle and keep your eyes on the road, instead of fumbling with cables and a 12-volt charging adapter.
Qi Wireless Charging Module: The included Qi wireless charging module works by using inductive charging technology to allow your Qi compatible smartphone to charge without any cables or connecting a charger. It will charge your phone's battery to 100% and then tapers off to avoid overcharging. An LED light lets you know when your phone is charging and when charging is complete.
Note: Do not place magnetic cards or magnetic recorded media too close to the wireless charging module as it may damage your card or erase your recorded media. Do not place metal objects near the Qi wireless charging module while its being used to charge your smartphone. Do not place smart keys within 6" of the charging module, as it may prevent vehicle from starting.
Smartphone Compatibility: The Brandmotion Qi Wireless Charging Installer Kit can provide a charge to any smartphone with integrated Qi functionality, including the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S7, Google Nexus 6, LG G2, and the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Other phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Apple iPhones, can become Qi-enabled if you equip them with a Qi receiving accessory from Brandmotion (sold separately).

Trim-to-Fit, Non-Slip Mat: The included rubber mat can be trimmed to fit the center console or arm rest in many vehicles. A template is provided to help with cutting, installation, and fit. Click here to see if the Brandmotion Qi Wireless Charging Kit is compatible with your vehicle. The Qi wireless charging module gets mounted to the bottom of the included bracket, while the rubber mat is placed on top of the bracket. The rubber mat provides a soft, non-slip surface for your Qi compatible smartphone to charge.
Notes: Due to high heat and sun exposure, the top of a vehicle's dash is not a recommend location for mounting the FDMC-1210.
Power Requirements: The Qi wireless charging module must be connected to your vehicle's 12-volt electrical system and requires switched power and ground. An 8' power & ground cable is included. The power wire has an in-line 3A fuse.
Optional T-Harness: The optional FDMC-1900 T-Harness (220FDM1900, sold separately) is a convenient and seamless solution for connecting the Brandmotion Qi Wireless Charging Kit to your vehicle's 12-volt power supply. The T-Harness allows the Brandmotion Qi Wireless Charging Kit to draw power from your vehicle's 12-volt power socket or cigarette adapter without having to splice wires.
Note: This harness is intended to be used with an "accessory" or "switched" 12-volt power socket in order to avoid draining the battery while the vehicle
