Morning Ian,They don't make it easy do they The cooling fins also present an issue as presumably a large amount of the underside wants to be in free air for them to be able to work?
I’m going to test how hot the fins get during the week. I’ll run my phone down and leave it on charge for a couple of hours (with the battery charger connected)
I’m really hoping that it doesn’t get too warm. This factory QI Wireless Charging Module would never be running at full capacity in an A2 as the Module also enables wireless connectivity to the later style MMI for music streaming and screen mirroring/sharing on recent models along with a couple of other functions. I’ll only be demanding the charging function.
To try and replicate a car interior on the hottest day I’ll wait for a sunny day and set up the test rig again. This will be set up on the kitchen floor next to the bifolds which get hot all day (south facing).
I’ll move to the installation stage once I’m happy that the temperature doesn’t get dangerously warm. I am very confident it shouldn’t as Audi must already looked into this and it’s the main reason why I wanted to get for a factory item.
The potential problems are not worth considering should I have taken the aftermarket approach. One of the reasons I have keep everything as OEM+ as possible is knowing that an amount of testing has happened in the background. This should also not have any interference with radio reception which usually happens with aftermarket items.
Waffled on long enough for now. I should have a couple of Twist items delivered this coming week to play with and will keep everyone updated with the progress.
