Any feedback on this after 3+ months of use?
Still working like a charm. I'm running it with a powerbank to keep up with full speed charging as well as USB splitting for TeslaCam.
Based on my experience, I'm highly doubtful to USB splitters will provide 7.5w. Maybe I'm wrong though. Guess it's time to test with a power meter.

Mine just stopped working... The red light flashes continuously and it is not charging the phone... Anyone else experiencing this?? It had been working fabulously..

My other car has a magnet on it to hold my phone (I have a metal plate on the back of my iphone). Can I still use the wireless charger?. Thanks

Not likely.....unless you can arrange the metal plate so that it doesn't cover the portion of the phone that has the charger in it. Typically that is the middle of the phone, so hard to get the metal plate in a position where it isn't blocking.

I just got mine in the mail today. I too have a metal plate on the back of my phone and the charger worked fine in my first test. I position the plate as low as it can possibly go. YMMV but so far so good for me.
