Power outlets, USB ports and a wireless charging tray all allow you to charge devices in your BMW. Depending on your BMW model, you can find 3 12-volt power outlets, Type A and Type C USB ports and a wireless charging tray. No matter your cord, or lack thereof, BMW provides a variety of methods for you to ensure your phone, tablet or other electronic devices are always fully charged and ready to go whenever you need it. Familiarize yourself with all of these charging sources below, and let our skilled team at Edmonton BMW outline all the ways you can securely keep your devices charged!
Up to 3 12-volt power outlets may be found across your BMW model. One will be found between the bottom of the front cupholders, perfect for the driver and front passenger. Another of these power outlets is found at the bottom of the rear centre console, suited for your rear passengers to charge their device. A third outlet is found on the right side of the boot of your BMW, for low profile charging. These power outlets will charge your devices when your BMW is in stand-by or in a drive-ready status. The availability of these outlets will depend on your model.
Both USB Type A and Type C ports can be found on your BMW, depending on the model. A Type A port can be found between the cupholders, above the power outlet. A Type C port is available inside the centre armrest, allowing you to conveniently charge your device under the safe cover and protection of the console. Next to the power outlet on the rear console is another set of Type C ports. Don’t fret if your device isn’t compatible with Type C USB, you can always get an adapter that will turn it into a Type A port, allowing you to connect.
Wireless Charging Tray
A wireless charging tray is found right above the front cupholders. Wireless charging isn’t available on every BMW model, as it’s still a relatively new technology and one just now seen more permanently in vehicles, so double-check if your BMW is wireless compatible. It’s simple to use the tray, just open the centre console tray and slide your phone into the slot, and the wireless charging power will do the rest. Make sure your phone is placed screen up, or else it won’t charge.
