Title: Works Well with Tesla Wireless Charger - Impressive engineering throughout

Wireless charging in 2023 Tesla Model Y: My iPhone 15 Pro MAX “naked - no case” has to be upside down to charge in My Model Y Wireless charging cradle below the large touch screen on either driver or passenger side, and is finicky about being in just the right position. Previously old iPhone 11 Pro MAX in a Beetle (non- MagSafe) Case worked easily and well for wireless charging. I tried a couple of other cases in the Y that did not charge wirelessly at all in my Tesla. Now for this new TORRAS case: it works great wirelessly charging the iPhone 15 Pro MAX, right side up, in the Model Y on either driver or passenger side. Note: In various ads TORRAS boasts that the magnets array and strength they use enhances wireless charging. My experience proves this is true. My iPhone 15 Pro Max with no case had to be upside down and wiggled a lot to get it to charge in Model Y vs the iPhone 15 Pro MAX in the TORRAS case that makes it not finicky at all. Also at home with old Samsung hockey puck style wireless chargers when the iPhone 15 Pro MAX was in other brand MagSafe cases it was always finicky to get it to charge. With the new TORRAS case - no problem at all - charging just started immediately with no special attention required. Clearly the TORRAS MagSafe case back and extra strength magnet array are definitely enhancing the inductive charging pulsating magnetic field that induces current into the 2nd half transformer coils in the iPhone. Half of coils in charger and half of coils in phone brought close enough together, and through magnetic induction - make a working transformer. TORRAS has clearly done their engineering very well - I admire their work! A protective case back necessarily increases the distance between the primary and secondary coils in the wireless inductive charging situation, and this play’s hell getting the wireless charging to work at least as well as no case at all - much less actually better. A well designed fixed magnet array is adding extra distance, but playing magnificently well with the pulsating AC current that produces magnetic induction. It’s like a 3 person relay race running just as fast or faster than a two person hand-off race. Something I should mention: with inductive charging it is important to get the charger ‘charging-surface’ and ‘phone back charging area’ as flat against each other as possible. I forgot to mention that I put an Ailon Camera Lens Protector over the three camera lenses on the back of my iPhone 15 Pro MAX. This has no consequence with my old Samsung hockey puck style chargers ‘cause the camera lenses aren’t in the charging area at all. However, in the Tesla Model Y, charging the iPhone 15 Pro MAX with no case but with camera lens protector does lift one end of the phone back up a tiny bit more which is not good for inductive charging, and I did not remove the camera lens protector (the Ailon protector covers all three lenses with one protector), some others have 3ea individual lens protectors, but all add very little thickness. Reading the net on this subject, many people did mentioned the iPhone 15 Pro MAX with “no” case having to be upside down to get it to wirelessly charge in the Tesla. With my new TORRAS case on my iPhone 15 Pro MAX, it charges just fine right side up, driver or passenger side, and it does not lay perfectly flat as the three cameras Lens bezel does stick out further than the rest of the case back. For protection, the lenses surface are recessed below the small bezel on the back of the case around the lenses. The excellent engineering of the TORRAS MagSafe magnets make the back of case itself “the effective charging area surface” rather than the back of the actual iPhone deeper down in the case. Also, eyeballing it the “lenses’ bezel is less high above the TORRAS case back” than the “no-case-at-all camera lenses above the naked phone back.” And, that helps a bit too. All in all, I am impressed and very happy with my TORRAS case for iPhone Pro MAX. OH Yeah, with a quality Tempered Glass Screen protector (Spigen in this case) installed on the front screen of the iPhone, the TORRAS case comes very close to the screen protector, but mercifully does not touch it. With cases that touch the screen protector it can cause the tempered glass to try to flex which causes air to get under the screen protector making an air bubble under the glass - aggravating. Very accurate engineering on TORRAS part prevented this from being a problem. Also my Ailon camera lenses protector fits well with the TORRAS case and doesn’t protrude above the lenses’ bezel. I believe individual lens protectors will also fit well.
