The OpenSourceEV Ultimate MagSafe Charging Power Kit for the Rivian R1T and R1S is the companion product to the Pad Kit. It allows you to use the OEM plug that powered the stock wireless charging pad. It includes the following

  • USB Power Block
  • USB Power Block cabling & double-sided tape
  • Molex connector & shrink wrap for solder connection
  • Terminal block & 3D Printed Terminal block sleeve for the screw-together option

    Please note that this product requires assembly. You'll be provided with parts to either solder the connecting cable, providing a more robust connection, or screw together the cable, which is a bit more fiddly but requires no soldering. 

    If you're planning to use the OEM Apple MagSafe pads with this product, you'll also need a USB-C to USB-A adapter. Unfortunately, they tend to be a little picky about what adapter works. We've qualified one and sell it here

    This product has not been tested with other aftermarket Rivian charging setups. It is use at your own risk.

    Pretty good

    I went the solder route and it was great, except that the 12v barrel connector was not connected well to the board. This caused an intermittent loss of power. Added a small plastic shim to the case after adding a dab of solder and we are up and running.

    Great device but no instructions

    At a minimum it would be nice to get some kind of instructions.
    I know what I was doing, but still had to be sure and use outside equipment to install correctly.

    On the inside of every box that we send is a stamp that directs folks to the installation instructions page: https://opensourceev.com/install

    On that page are instructions for the installation of this product. It's located here: https://opensourceev.com/blogs/install-instructions/power-kit

    Nice Kit but plan to spend some time for install

    I have to agree with the other reviews that this install is a tight fit, and you definitely need to plan to route the DC connector into the little hole in the back of the console. I went with the screw in wiring, and found the pre-stripped/tinned leads were too short to bottom into the connector. Since there is a LOT of slack in that cable, opted to cut and strip new leads that were a touch bit longer. Helpful to have some electrical tape to clean up the work/wiring and some small pieces of double back mounting foam to hold both the power block and OEM power connector in place during final install.

    Overall a good solution to keep the USB-C ports open in the center console. One star taken off as the install was a bit more finicky than was expected.

    Worth it to keep the ports open

    I ordered the Magesafe pads with power kit. I soldered the leads vs. using the screws--it was simple and straight forward. I like having the center console ports available and this power kit keep the install clean (no visible cables). The one trick is to look at the photo on this website and note the power cable to the USB block tucks into an existing cutout. This leave a little more room for the other cables. I also added a small amount of stickyback 1/8 foam to make sure nothing rattles.

    This kit enabled a clean install and is a very functional addition to my (much loved) R1T!

    Works, but it was a tight fit.

    Would have been much easier to install if the DC plug was a right angle.

    The JSAUX Qi adapters get quite hot even with this open design. Time will tell how will it functions, especially on a long summer roadtrip.
