Wireless Charger - iPhone 12 Mini

I had been having an issue with the wireless charger charging my iPhone 12 mini. Two service calls later and I’ve learned that the positioning of the coil in the phone has a quirk due I’m assuming to the size of the phone. You have to barely insert it down into the charger, wait for it to start charging before sliding it down all the way. It will keep charging after it starts. If you go all the way straight down, it won’t charge. Weird.

I built a "cradle" or sorts to position it up a few mm and center it. The left and right parts of the cradle help with my "spirited" driving.

Mind sharing what you created? I’d be interested in something. I was going to talk to a buddy that has a 3D printer about making something.
That’s exactly what I was think of doing but I don’t have any cool friends with a 3D printer.

if you do have one made, I’d totally be interested.
