Few months back i made a powermat case for my phone: https://www.instructables.com/id/Powermat-your-phone-in-this-case-my-HTC-Arrive/
part of the reason was i wanted to add a charger to my car. Well a few people out there have beat me to it but here is how i did it.
I have a 2011 Kia Forte Koup that i just love (not as much as my old truck though) but i hate having to plug in my phone into it and there is no real good like docking place so when i use navigation or anything with my phone. So the idea was to fix both problems.
With the case i have comes a single charging unit, there is a magnet that aligns and holds them together. I hoped that the magnet would be strong enough to where i can just use that and not have to make or modify some other holder. So i connected the phone and charger and shook it, it held on pretty well so i was hoping that with basic driving it would not disconnected the two. So make sure yours in strong enough.Now the parts needed for this is as follows:Sheet of kydex
Kydex is mostly use for gun and knife sheaths, it is some pretty nice rather cheap heat pliable plastic like thing. I choose it mostly because it is easy to bend and is pretty tough and match the interior of my car.Powermat single charger

This i cheated on by stealing the one another guy used to make his car charger: http://geeked.co/ this guy makes and sells some chargers, mine is different but i stole his converter.
Note: there is talk that you can use a HP Mini 110 type laptop car charger because it does 18v which is what the charger takes, though the amps is different. I went ahead and used a fan less converter figuring it would be safer and it gives me another usb portVecro strips for plastic:

I wanted to use vecro so i can remove the charger when i wanted to.
