My Homemade slide in wireless car charger for S5 with Incipio case
None of the car holders I found would accept the S5 with a case and none of the wireless chargers would mount in my car so I designed and built my own. I started with a TYLT angled wireless charger and removed the electronics. I did some measuring and made a slide in "pouch" out of acrylic plastic for my phone with the case on. I glued a small box on the back to hold the circuit board. I used 2 pieces of foam to hold the board firmly away from the back which has a slot for the suction cup mount to slide into.
To make the I cut and taped the assembly together then just put a few drops of solvent into the corners. It wicked in and held firmly.
While not pretty It works very well. See the attached photos. I may paint it later. No more squeezing little clamps on the phone or plugging in the cable!
