Pretty sure the touchstones (both for the phones and the touchpad tablet) are proprietary to Palm devices only ...

I've used them on several other Android devices including my Galaxy Nexus

Here is a link to a guide I posted a couple of years ago that was used by many: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...ing-phone.html

The Palm Touchstone wireless charger(s) use a proprietary system unique to Palm devices. It is not compatible with devices that adhere to the Qi wireless charging standard.

The guide posted is to add the wireless charging coil from a Palm device to a phone that originally did not have it. This will then allow the phone to use the Touchstone charger. This mod does not make the phone Qi compatible not does it make a Qi compatible phone work with the Touchstone charger.

Had it working the same way on an Samsung S3 and I have seen it done on a Nexus 4.

The touch stone is working fine I soldered a micro USB cable to it and plugged it in that way and placed it on the stone and it charged at a normal rate. further looking I've descovered the problem the tap in point showen in the op for the 5 volts is the secondary regulator for charging the battery the phone can not detect how many amps is being delivered to the phone thus the unstable charging some times I've been looking for the primary charging regulator but I've been unable to locate it I'm not willing to remove my Shields this is my only phone I have right now if some one can post high res pics of the board with the shields off I can look further to find the main power tap for charging...

No disrespect to the op at all great start hope I can figure out where to tap it in at for a better charging wirelessly.

Wouldn't be the easiest way to solder the wires right to the connection points of USB port where its soldered to the motherboard? This way there is no need for searching for voltage regulators

No it would not, the connection points are completely covered by a metal shield.
