Created my own Nokia wireless car charger for Nokia Lumia 920 using Nokia wireless charging plate and mobio go as car mount.
Don't have to touch your factory wiring, just use your 12v cigarette outlet.
I have attached the photos with the write up.

Also, how does it work with the 12V from the car? Do you need something special to use it in the car?

I already got my car rigged with a micro USB cable to the phone's location from my previous device. Is there an easy way to convert the Nokia charging plate to micro USB?
One more question: Is the charge sufficient to use Navigation (Nokia Drive) + Streaming Music (i.e. Spotify) + Bluetooth phone connection (to use handsfree) and still get power to the battery or at least keep the charge at the same level?
Thanks for sharing - inspiringly simple and effective!

You should be able to connect Nokia wireless charging plate cable to your USB cable. I think you may have to do some cutting and splicing of the wires.

But I have to admit that electrical engineering is not my forte.

Search utube and the news feed here. There is video of some guys installing a wireless plate in car. And no, you can't convert to USB. It is a 12v signal to plate. If I remember right, all they did was cut cable and install a fuse. They installed a bunch of magnets in case and charger plate to keep it in place. Looked pretty rough, but it worked.

how about using a DC-DC step-up converter 5V to 12V?
I'm talking about something like this:
LM2577 Adjustable Power DC DC Boost Converter 3 24V to 4 26 5V Step Up Module | eBay
DC DC Step Up Step Down Voltage Converter Power Supply Module 3 5 28V to 1 25 26 | eBay

I haven't tried it, but find a fused cigarette lighter adapter and cut and splice to your Nokia cable. Polarity is an issue (the wires have to be hooked up correctly + and -) and I don't remember right now which is which but I'm sure it was in the utube video. It seems like a lot of work for one phone. I have multiple devises for USB and it just wasn't worth the headache. Good luck.
I don't know why Nokia hasn't came out with a cigarette adapter with a more stable charger base already. Unless it isn't reliable enough for them to make it a factory device. There may be an unforeseen issue. Like it may burn up your charger. I don't know.
