Create your Own Wireless Charging Phone Mount with Bulletpoint Components

If you're looking for a phone mount that combines the sturdiness and rigidity of a Bulletpoint Mounting Solutions setup with the convenience of wireless charging, we've put together the following video showing how you can create your own hybrid setup.

The 3 main components for creating a wireless phone charging setup include:

  1. Wireless Charging Cradle (3rd Party)
  2. Bulletpoint Mounting Solutions Base
  3. Bulletpoint Mounting Solutions Mounting Arm with 17mm Ball End

    Component #1: 3rd Party Wireless Charging Cradle

    Most of the wireless chargers on the market come in a kit and usually include something like a suction cup mount. It isn't the most secure or the most stable.

    When selecting your wireless charger, you will need to make sure the back side of the cradle features a 17mm connecting socket. A lot of the wireless chargers use this size so it shouldn’t be difficult to find and they usually display this info on the product listings.

    Component #2: Mounting Base

    For a secure mounting connection with your vehicle, you will need one of our vehicle specific or universal bases.

    Component #3: Mounting Arm with 17mm Ball End

    To bridge the gap between the base and wireless charger, you'll need our Mounting Arms with 17mm ball end.

    Another option is to use any of our standard mounting arms with 20mm socket ends in combination with a 20 to 17mm Connecting Socket.

    Without this connecting socket, our standard mounting arm will not work since it features 2 socket ends (female) and the cradle requires a male 17mm ball to work.

    Every vehicle is a bit different in terms of what arm you should use. Most Jeep, Ford and RAM Trucks would use the mounting arm with 17mm ball end.

    However, for 3rd Generation Toyota Tacomas, since our mounting base sits on the radio bezel, the shorter 1cm mounting arm with a 20 to 17mm Elbow Connector would be the recommended configuration.
