    I have a Note 10, which is too long to fit for wireless charging. Does anyone have a solution to be able to use the built in wireless charging?

    No. There is no "solution".
    If it won't fit, it won't work.
    Charge it with a cord.

    Obvious solutions are obvious.

    Actually, the wireless charger in the car is pretty wimpy even if the phone fits. I have to remove the case from my phone to use the wireless charger and then it's super slow. Not that I'd drive around with no case on the phone anyway, but I just wanted to try it.

    I think your best bet if you want the novelty of not plugging in the phone is having a wireless charger mount (which you could leave plugged in). That would have the advantage of locating the phone where you could see it if you want to use Waze or Google maps rather than the lame GPS in the car. Here's an assortment on Amazon.

    What the built-in Qi charger in the Prime does best is heat up the phone, while putting in a dribble of charge.:rolleyes:
