Default How to get QI wireless charging on your SII without any permanent mods

I just got an S3, and was excited about the ability to use wireless charging. While looking for QI gear on eBay, I ironically stumbled across an item that will add that very same feature on my old SII, without any permanent hardware mod needed.

The item in question is this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/200963522572...84.m1497.l2649

It's basically a QI charging inlay thing that has a very tiny microUSB connector, allowing you to connect it to essentially anything that charges via microUSB. I bought one just to try it out, and sure enough, it works like a charm with my old S II. I have a cheap (but great) TPU case on my S II, and the QI inlay fit absolutely perfectly between the case and the phone's actual back cover.

I used the SII for more than a year and a half, and I frankly hope that this was just invented a few weeks ago, as I hate to think that wireless charging for my S II was $16 away all that time >.<

QI is a standard. Throw a rock and you will hit a compatible charger : p

It's for the QI standard, so if PowerMat is QI, it will work. If not, it wont
