The copy we received was delivered in the evening by the postal worker and we wasted no time unboxing the package. We found the following items in the box:-
- The wireless charger unit/base.
- 1pc air-vent mount accessory.

- 4pcs adhesive cable clips.
- 2pcs adhesive EVA foam.
- 1pc user manual and a 1.5M micro USB cable.
The instruction manual was concise and so, we didn’t find it hard trying out the different mount options. The micro USB cable length made each options flexible enough for us as it extends well to any of our most-preferred position.
Our Review and Experiences
Our first impression with dodocool Da92B 3coil fast wireless charging device was awesome. This is because the charger is built with strong ABS material and electronically equipped to protect against short-circuit, over-voltage and/or over-current.
Another function that really impressed us is the 10w fast charging capability and the 1.5M long micro-USB cable that made it easy for us to try out the mount options in varying positions.
3 coil charging functionality of this model is lovely as it creates a better charging coverage and marks for optimal charging of devices irrespective of size and/or direction.
I felt very comfortable with using Google map navigation function on this unit while driving. This is because the 360° rotating ball joint on either of the mounts made screen-viewing flexible enough as I could easily rotate the phone to my most-preferred angle.
Testing the device as a standard ‘wired’ car charger didn’t give a good result as the cable length impeded the charging speed. So its best to stick with the wireless charging function while using this device, except there’s a shorter USB cord (for cable charging) around.
The LED indicator function that steadily indicates the charging or standby status of the device makes it easy to know if the phone is charging without stretching to the phone’s buttons.
In all, dodocool Da92B 10W, 3-coil, fast wireless car charger for phones is a useful after-sale car accessory as it can be used as a: universal phone holder, a comfortable standard phone charger and as a Qi wireless charger for smart phones.
It well complemented my multi-purpose mp3 player (pictured below) that came with a very short micro-USB cable.
To me, the price Vs features of Dodocool Qi wireless charger for cars is worth it considering the innovative functions it came saddled with.
