    Hi,

    I was going try and discreetly install a qi charger in my tundra. My plan was to hide the wires within the center console and tap into the cigarette lighter wires for a power source.

    Do you guys see any issues with this approach? I just don't want to overlook something.

    Thanks

    Did the same thing, i tapped into the rear cig lighter. Just be sure to use a 12v DC to 5v DC stepdown

    I mean on the back of the cig lighter plug. I want to tap in to it but as far as I remember they aren’t red and black.
