A portable device, such as a smartphone or mobile battery, can be charged by just placing it on the charging area, provided the device is compatible with the Qi wireless charging standard created by the Wireless Power Consortium.
The wireless charger cannot be used with a portable device that is larger than the charging area. Additionally, depending on the portable device, the wireless charger may not operate properly. Refer to the operation manual of the portable device.

*: Compatible portable devices and the wireless charger contain charging coils. The charging coil inside the wireless charger can move within the area around the center of the charging tray.
When the charging coil inside a portable device is detected within the charging area, the charging coil in the wireless charger will move near the other coil and charging will begin. If the charging coil inside the portable device is moved out of the charging area, charging will be stopped automatically.
Additionally, if 2 or more portable devices are placed on the charging tray at the same time, each charging coil may not be detected correctly and charging may not be possible.
■ Using the wireless charger
1. Press the power supply switch of the wireless charger.
Pressing the switch again turns the wireless charger off.
When turned on, the operation indicator light (green) comes on.
When the engine switch is turned off, the on/off state of the wireless charger will be memorized.
If the power supply switch is pressed 3 times while charging is being performed, the rapid charging function will turn on. To turn the wireless charger off, press the power supply switch when a portable device is not being charged.
2. Place a portable device on the charging tray.
Place the portable device so that it is centered in the charging area with its charging surface facing the portable charger.
Depending on the portable device, its charging coil may not be in the center of the device. In this case, place the portable device so that its charging coil is centered in the charging area.
While charging, the operation indicator light (orange) will be illuminated.
If charging does not begin, move the portable device as close to the center of the charging area as possible.
When charging is complete, the operation indicator light (green) will illuminate.
