I searched the forums but couldn't find an answer. Can you charge multiple phones at the same time on the wireless charging pad? Or can you only do one at a time?

No you can't, most charging pads will only fit 1 phone at a time as well they can only charge one at time something to do with the limitation of the technology

This is both a voltage thing and a space thing

I think the space constraint is going to annoy some people. The spot in the center console looks just big enough to hold standard sized phones. No Samsung Notes or other supersized devices.

Good. Use the AC plug in the back for charging bigger things in my opinion.

Induction charging has been around for a 100 yrs of so.
You can buy chargers that handle 3 phones at home.
Aside from physical size it all depends on the field strength, which we do not know at this point. The stronger the induction field the more phones it will charge. Apple finally got on board with android etc to adopt a standard for this function so everyone should be good.

At one extreme Tesla sells a charger you park your car over to charge the car battery, no plug in needed.

You can always buy an aftermarket wireless charger and plug it into one of the other outlets.

Oh, I don't care. I don't use those larger phones (not getting the Lux package anyway). People that do are apt to be annoyed. I don't think it's as easy as just getting another Qi pad. You need a place to put it where the phone isn't going to slide around.

Things can barely charge one phone. Having a case makes them pretty much useless.

They should just make all the cup holders wireless chargers, that’s where people put their phones anyway. :unsure:
