Ok. So. Got mine today. Also got a USB C to micro USB cable like you suggested; thanks. However, this wireless charging pad is NOT good for the iPhone 12 mini. It says it works with all iPhone 12 models. Not so much. First off, the wireless charging pad doesn't clip or secure in place. But ok. Second, I tried just connecting the left side, which would connect just the left side of the charging pad. Doesn't charge. But I noticed if I hold it up 1 inch higher on the pad, it charges. Then when it drops down, it stops charging if I let go. So, I put the spacer in. I still have to hold it up 1/2 inch to engage the wireless charge, and it stops when I let go and it drops down. Then I tried unplugging my USB for sentry and plugged in the other side too. It did the same thing on the right side. The only way I could get it to charge regularly was to lay it horizontally, which is not how I want to use it. I realize I could get something 1/2 inch thick to raise my phone up, but for $75, it should work as intended. Pretty disappointed. Debating whether I should order and try the TEMAI version that Mr. Big said works with his iPhone 12 Pro. But I'm starting to feel like the mini is just not supported by these chargers.
