Finally got my nexus charger working in my car and loving it.

For those who want a similar setup, stay away from the Anker adapter below...it's hit or miss...total miss for me.

This one worked perfectly

I'm using the Spigen neo hybrid case and the magnets hold good enough even with tight cornering. I also tested with the Spigen ultra thin also. The magnets hold nicely as well but it shifts a bit more because of the smooth backing.

How well does it hold if I place it in a vertical position? =)

Same as I was thinking, some good double sided tape to stick the charger to a vertical surface. Wonder how well that would hold with car bumps and movements.

Actually, it would hold pretty well if you don't use a case. It would definitely slide off eventually during a long or bumpy ride.

Cool. My local Dollar Store sells those rubbery (silicone?) dash mat grip pads. Can trim down to size and place it on top of qi charger. Probably not thick enough to interfere with the inductive charging.

I can confirm that the Anker charger doesn't work! I'm sending it back today. It only has 1.5 mah (although on Amazon says 2.4) and that isn't enough for the Nexus wireless charger.
Their support seems to be familiar with the problem!
