Can a Wireless Charger work with our built in USB ?

I bought a wireless charger for my TL and tried to hook it up but the Navigation screen told me to disconnect with some type of error message.
I am guessing that it is because our TL's have an older version of USB or perhaps it does not supply enough voltage.
Does anyone know if there is a way to get this to work ? I bought this one.

It looks like your wireless charger supports Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0. In the Q&A section the seller answered "slow power adapter such as 5V 1A is not recommended." I would just pick up a Quick Charge 3.0 charger like this one https://smile.amazon.com/Anker-Charg.../dp/B01K9MQ8WW

You still can have wireless charging, buy the charger I linked and connect the wireless charger to it.

get one that plugs into the 12V outlet rather than the USB...

All I know is that the USB will charge, but it's terribly slow. Just not enough amps. I use a separate wired charger plugged into the 12V outlet. Also, I use the USB as data storage for the stereo which also makes it unfeasible.
