    Nothing is wrong with enjoying it. Be humble about it.
    Haven't seen that in this thread. If you're going to complain about it, you probably make the complaint in a thread where people are actually doing what you claim.

    People here mainly want to have fun and show off the product they enjoy.

    That sounds like it would rock. Probably quite literally.

    calm down, I have a 920 lol. I'm not a ****** I was asking sincerely how he is keeping his phone on the wireless charging pad while driving because of something called inertia.

    its inside the console and there are ridges high enough to keep the phone in place, the friction from my tpu case also helps a lot

    Yeah i saw your video and noticed that the charging pad was in the console and there was or looked like there was a lot of space inside of it which is why I asked. But, I haven't even really considered buying my phone a case from the YouTube videos of people trying to scratch it with keys, etc and plus I tend to think cases as otterboxes that make phones just plain ugly. But, the tpu cases I will admit look pretty good! Does the tpu case have a screen protector? I couldn't tell from any of the pictures I saw of it online...

    I like your idea with hooking up your charging pad to your car. Maybe since you have a case for your 920 you could add thin magnetic strips to the back of it and on to the charging pad?!

    I'd be interested in seeing pics of a vid of this when you are done...

    I have just finished my little project to build a wireless charging car holder for my lumia 920.
    It took some time to figure out which adjustable holder to use and how to wire it.
    Here is the end result it works like a charm.

    btw. in case you are wondering I had to use a Nokia DT-900 Wireless Charging Plate in white due to the fact that the black one was sold out here in Germany

    I don't have a pic, but I had put mine underneath a glass desk top (about 1cm thick) and I was able to just lay my phone on the desk and it would charge. Incidentally, my charging plate, or wireless charging no longer works properly even if I lay the phone directly on it. I don't know if the desk trick caused the demise of my wireless charging. Be warned.
