Default [MOD] S3 Wireless Charging Palm Touchstone (Origami technique)

HI all, following the success of my Note 2 Origami Wireless charging mod here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1986016

I now present to you the Origami Wireless Charging mod for the Galaxy S3

The technique is very simple and you only need a Palm Pre wireless receiver and copper tape.

The instructions are similar to for the NOte 2, just look at the above link. The only difference is the alignment of the contacts.

I should not have to elaborate on this as the pictures will show you what I mean.

I am currently using a Spigen SGP Ultra bumper case with this mod without problem.

This mod charges the GS3 around 16% to 17% per hour it is quicker than that on the NOte 2

NFC function is NOT affected as far as I can tell.


Here are a few pics:















This is how it looks like with just an original Samsung TPU case....

Were you able to test the Freq of the Magnetic field while charging to see how much of the field is effected by the exposed Copper trailing off from the Coiled Copper in the protective sleeve, make sure the induction wasn't attracted to exposed copper and run that path, maybe bypassing the circuit board in the black sleeve with the Coil....How the Induction is created is the Receive and Transmitting Copper coils have to be of equal size etc....

I haven't done this myself, but it seems like you probably have contacts touching each other where it isn't supposed to. make sure none of the copper tapes are touching

HI all, I have tested NFC and I can confirm it blocks NFC, this may be due to the NFC antenna is in the battery and the wireless receiver sits on top of the battery.

Not entirely a loss to me because I can still send files via direct WiFi.

Im going to attempt doing this whenever I get a chance. It doesn't look difficult at all and truthfully I could care less about doing NFC when I can easily take the back cover off and still transfer files via NFC regardless.

I am not sure what method you used but I have done this on two devices and both have kept nfc functionality.

This actually depends on where you put the coil. I think the nfc antenna is around top half of phone. Easiest way to test is by using nfc tags or a pay pass credit card to help placement of coil height/location.
