    Hello TMC community,

    We are Skyline, and we create accessories for the Tesla Model S, X and 3! We have had our Model 3 for a few months now, and overall we are loving the car! So far, we have noticed a few areas that could use improvement, and we have been hard at work developing solutions for the community.

    We love that Tesla included the dual phone charging dock in the center console. However, one of the first things we noticed when getting our Model 3 was that most phones do not fit in the dock when you have a case on! Like most people, we keep a case on our phones, and we certainly did not want to remove it every time we want to use the charger. This was also true for the Model S/X phone dock, which is why we created the Skyline Case-friendly phone dock last year for Model S/X cars - and feedback from the community has been great!

    We have developed a dock adapter for the Model 3 phone charger that works with cases, so you can get the most of your premium center console! This dock adapter installs between the trim cover and the original dock, and requires no tools or modifications. It provides much more space for thicker phone cases, and it also raises the connectors by a few millimeters.

    Check out the video to see it in action!

    Looks great!

    Couple questions:
    1. How thick of a case can you have with this?
    2. Do you have a return policy if it doesn't work?

    We have tested it with cases up to 13mm thick, although it will most likely work with cases a bit thicker than that as well. If you have any issues with our products, or if you find that it does not work out for you, we will of course provide a full refund.

    Thanks!

    Way to expensive for what it is. $20 sounds about right.

    Innovative product - kudos. I love to see people solving these little annoyances! But IMO overpriced, since I solved the same problem by buying a new 90 degree cable that just stuck out further.... from Amazon for less than $6. Since I might need 2 cables for ~$12, that might help you more competitively price your product....just sayin'

    I already ordered it before I noticed. I’m just letting you know that the promotion code isn’t working on your website so you can fix it for future customers.

    What does "8mm of extra space" mean? Front to Back??

    Correct, 8mm additional support front to back. A draw back to some of the wireless chargers is that they push phones out and "off" the charging base. Our design actually adds more thickness to support larger phones with cases.

    I recieved it. This works PERFECTLY! I never used the original dock area before because my phone kept slipping down into the lower compartment. Not only is my phone staying in place, but I can charge it in the case, too!

    Fit like it was created from the factory. Excellent piece of ingenuity!

    Thank you.
