Morning all,
I've been trying to fathom a way of charging my spare key fob, more conveniently, out of the car. I've read that charging a fully discharged fob, takes around 30 hours!
Now, I've read that some people use a toothbrush induction charger, others use a smart watch/phone charger pad.
Do any of you know a solution?
I was considering buying an R56 second hand start/stop button (pictured) and connecting this to a 12v power supply.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Just replace the battery? It's perfectly do-able. 🤷‍♂️
Yeah, I've seen the tutorials on YouTube. I'd still like to be able to recharge them, out of the vehicle.
For me, it's a little bit of 'peace of mind' knowing my fob's won't let me down (due to lack of charge) at an inconvenient time!

I have a wireless charger for my OralB toothbrush and tried it...Nothing happened..
Didnt even manage to open the car once!
Choice of opening the keyfob and replacing the battery is something that i would like to avoid if there is any other option even put the key on a charger for days..

So is there anyway that you can charge it without opening the key? But charge it for real not for like 10-30uses
