Same amount of current as it would without the mod.

If you connect it to a basic usb port, it is just like if you connected the charger using a usb cable, so I dont think it's gonna cause problems, until now, I haven't noticed any. the only drawback is that the charging is slower than on wall charger but that was expected.

Hell, I haven't thought about that, maybe I should've left it there, but as you sad it fits better this way. I hope it doesnt cause much trouble. After all this qi charger isn't that powerfull.

Sorry to bump an old thread but where did you get the cable you have between the PCB and the coil? I am looking to make a DIY car mount.
