Drop-in phone charger with a case?


Please Reboot
Apr 7, 2016
I have had my Tesla for over a year and just upgraded to the IPhone 8 Plus from a 6 Plus. I always had difficulty with cases fitting and the phone charging due to the shallow depth of the phone connector. My having to modify cases to slide in smoothly.

Yesterday in frustration I realized I could trim the plastic glide Tesla provides with a box cutter and everything fits and charges.

I still need a thin case but it works for me!
