The product features a non-slip TPU coating. It will work with any Qi enabled phone, including the iPhone 8 and X, and multiple Samsung Galaxy models.

The Wireless Pad works with the Tesla’s front USB ports. Up to two phones can be charged at once. The charger is both FCC and CE compliant.
The Model 3 product will be available in April. The team is also working on versions for the Model S and Model X cars.
