Has anyone fitted a retrofit wireless charger that they can recommend?

Ideally one that can be done via a DIY?

These on Amazon have got good reviews (and not just on Amazon's site)

Hi exaudisi

Sounds good would be nice to see some pics of the setup?

I just bought one of these; ... 2749.l2649

Plugs into a USB adapter in the 12v socket. Charges my iPhone 12 Mini with no problems. It's not an OEM looking solution, but for under £15 its fine.
Looking at reviews for this item some people have had issues with the mat causing car issues on other makes and not working very well and it only has a 60% 5 star rating.

Also its a Chinese manufactured item and not CE rated.

How are you finding it?

With all added extras to car electrics the thing that worries me is if something bad happened and it was pinned down to an extra you used and it was not CE approved could your insurance company walk away from any claim.

Anyone know the answer to this?

Mine has been fine and doesn't appear to be causing any problems.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over the lack of a CE mark on a 5 volt phone charger.
