Thumbs up Wireless charge pad and iPhone X

As an iPhone user I haven't had much need for the wireless charge pad and quite frankly that blue light was annoying. I got an iPhone X this past week and have been wondering if the iPhone X would work not having the highest faith in Newmar's technology choices. Gladly, it works. And that blue light turns green when it's charging Works well.

Buddy of mine tried his X in my NA the other day - no problem.
I'll probably end up with something like this for my 7+ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074Z67JKN/

I have never been so happy to read a post. I have had a wireless charging pad in my Escalade for 3 years now and have not been able to use it with my iPhone. Got the X a few weeks ago and alas it is not compatible with the older charger. I figured Newmar would be the same but you guys give me hope! Thx.

Let me know if that works with the Newmar blue light special for your 7+. I haven't had my 7+ long enough to even consider switching yet.

It is my understanding that the only I phones that are able to be charged on a mat is the I phone 8 or 10, the others do have a case you can buy to allow them to be chargeable

NealC - does your VT’s charger work with the iPhone’s protective cover on or do you have to remove it?

I use a clear TPU rubber cover and keep it on. It charges fine with it on. Here is the one I got on Amazon.

It was standard and I thought all models had it.

Each coach is different. I looked at LADP pictures on the Newmar website but couldn't see a place for the phone. Not the best picture they have online.
