■ Name for all parts

  1. Power supply switch
  2. Operation indicator light
  3. Charging tray
  4. Charging area*

Other interior features

*: 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.

Other interior features

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.

Other interior features

■ Recharging function

  • If a certain amount of time has elapsed since charging completed and the portable device has not been moved, the wireless charger will restart charging.
  • If a portable device is moved significantly within the charging area, the charging coil may disconnect and charging may temporarily be stopped. However, if a charging coil is detected within the charging area, the charging coil inside the wireless charger will move near the other coil and charging will resume.

■ Rapid charging function

  • Portable devices, such as the following, can be rapidly charged.
    • Rapid charging capable devices which conform to WPC Ver 1.2.4.
    • 7.5 W charging capable iPhones (iPhone 8 and later)

The engine switch is in ACCESSORY or IGNITION ON mode.

■Portable devices that can be charged

  • Portable devices compatible with the Qi wireless charging standard can be charged by the wireless charger. However, compatibility with all devices which meet the Qi wireless charging standard is not guaranteed.
  • The wireless charger is designed to supply low power electricity (5 W or less) to a cellular phone, smartphone, or other portable device.
  • However, portable devices, such as the following, can be charged with more than 5 W.
    • 7.5 W charging compatible iPhones can be charged at 7.5 W or less.
    • Portable devices which conform to WPC Ver 1.2.4 can be charged at 10 W or less.

■Using the smart key system

During charging, when the smart key system searches for an electronic key, charging may be temporarily suspended.

■If a cover or accessory is attached to the portable device

Do not charge a portable device if a cover or accessory which is not Qi compatible is attached. Depending on the type of cover and/or accessory attached, it may not be possible to charge the portable device. If the portable device is placed on the charging area and does not charge, remove the cover and/or accessories.

■If interference is heard in AM radio broadcasts while charging

  • Turn off the wireless charger and check if the noise is reduced. If noise is reduced, press and hold the power supply switch of the wireless charger for 2 seconds. The frequency of the wireless charger is changed and noise may be reduced. When the frequency is changed, the operation indicator light will blink (orange) 2 times.
  • Rapid charging for iPhones is performed using a specific radio wave frequency.

    Depending on the version of iOS installed, while the frequency is being changed, rapid charging may not be performed.

■Charging precautions

While charging, the wireless charger and the portable device will become warm. This is not a malfunction.

If a portable device becomes warm while charging and charging stops due to the protection function of the portable device, wait until the portable device cools down and charge it again.

Also, to decrease the temperature inside the wireless charger, a fan may operate. This does not indicate a malfunction.

■Sound generated during operation

■Caution regarding interference with electronic devices

People with implantable cardiac pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators, as well as any other electrical medical device, should consult their physician about the usage of the wireless charger.

Operations of the wireless charger may have an affect on medical devices.

■To prevent damage or burns

Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may result in the possibility of fire, equipment failure or damage, or burns due to heat.

  • Do not put any metallic objects between the charging area and the portable device while charging.
  • Do not attach metallic objects, such as aluminum stickers, to the charging area.
  • Do not charge portable devices with aluminum stickers or other metallic objects attached to the side which touches the charging area.
  • Do not store items on the wireless charger instead of in an auxiliary box.
  • Do not apply force or impact to the wireless charger.
  • Do not disassemble, modify or remove the wireless charger.

NOTICE

■To prevent failure or damage to data

  • Do not place magnetic cards, such as a credit card, or magnetic recording media, close to the wireless charger while charging. Otherwise, data may be erased due to the influence of magnetism.

    Additionally, do not bring precision instruments such as wrist watches, close to the wireless charger, as such objects may malfunction.

  • Do not perform charging with a contactless smart card, such as a credit card, between the charging surface of a portable device and the charging area. The IC chip in the card may become extremely hot, possibly damaging the portable device or smart card.

    Be extra careful to not charge a portable device with a case or cover which a contactless smart card can be inserted.

  • Do not leave portable devices in the cabin. The temperature inside the cabin may become high when parked in the sun, and cause damage to the device.

■When the OS of a smartphone has been updated

When the OS version of a smartphone has been changed, the charging specifications may have changed. If the WPC compatibility version is changed, the rapid charging function may no longer be able to be used. For details, check for information on the website for the smartphone manufacturer.

■To prevent battery discharge

Do not use the wireless charger for a long period of time with the engine stopped.
