MagSafe Compatible Dual Wireless Charger for 2017-2020 Tesla Model 3/Y

[Sponsored] We’re excited to share that our friends at TWRAPS have just launched a dual wireless charger designed specifically for the 2017-2020 Tesla Model 3 and Y, and it’s compatible with MagSafe iPhones. This charger features a design that ensures your phone stays in place, thanks to its MagSafe compatibility. Its two-level design can accommodate newer iPhones with larger cameras and ensures your device stays charged at all times. I’ve personally found that my iPhone 14 Pro barely charges on the stock wireless charger that came with my Tesla, so this new product is a game-changer.

If you’ve been looking for a wireless charger for your Tesla, today is your lucky day! You can get a 20% discount on this product by using the code RECHARGE.
