I bought an internal Wireless Charging pad on eBay.
Picture of the item: http://i.imgur.com/bQcVYY9.jpg
When placed in my phone, the cover is very tight.

So I took 1 side of the receiver pad and it looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/ldA3ETn.jpg
The side with the black squares is the side that faces the battery.
The black squares are not magnets. They seem to be some kind of metal (they stick to magnets.. )
Is there a special purpose for these plates? Like shielding the battery for the wireless charging signal??
I would like to remove them and just cover the rest of the pad with some tape.
Or is this not recommended?

those little squares are contacts that are supposed to place itself into the s3. It's a necessity since that's where the + and - are.

i think i know what that is.. it's probably what helps align the pad to the transmitter. transmitters have a magnet in the base to assist in aligning the phone (that's why there's a slight pull) when you place it close enough.
You can probably do without it.. but it just means you wouldn't be getting any assistance from the built in magnets.

do not remove them, that is a flexi magnet, it's very weak, but is needed for the induction to work, it also helps alight the receiver to the transmitter.
