Default DIY bumper case + Nexus wireless charger

I was looking for a true bumper case to use with my Nexus wireless charger car dock. However it seems that there aren't any quality ones out there. So I bought a Rearth Ringke Fusion case, remove the back and made a bumper case out of it. =) It is slimmer than Spigen Neo Hybrid. The sides are stretchy enough that can be pushed outward a bit. I have never used a true bumper case before so I'm not sure if this kind of stretchiness is normal. The back is raised enough to protect the lens. I have dBrand skin installed so there is another layer of protection for the back/lens. Hopefully it will work like a true bumper case.

It takes quite a bit of force to take it out but just keep on trying and eventually you can push it out for sure. I have only done this on a Ringke Fusion. Spigen Ultra Hybrid is another possible candidate. However I can't guarantee the back is removable.

Friendly advice: Don't do it. I just did, and the bumper alone is super wobly = hardly any relevant protection for the phone + uncomfortable in the hand. Tomorrow, I'm buying a superglue to glue it back together
