I used all the parts off of the Droid X Powermat cover, including the 5-pin connector. I did however cut and resoldered the red and black wires to shorten them for a cleaner install. All wiring locations are identical to the factory Droid X wiring.
The little connector is also from the Droid X piece. It has been trimmed a bit to fit the Otterbox USB opening.
That makes it much clearer, thanks.
I didn't make myself too clear in my earlier question. I'll be attaching the powermat receiver to the hard outer case of the Case Mate tough or the Hard Outer of the Otterbox (more likely the case mate TBH). Then fitting that over the silicon skin on the phone. What I should have made clearer is due to the larger battery the phones original hard case back is not used at all. So in effect.....
Normal Standard Setup.
Phone --> Battery --> Original Hard Back
Normal Case Mate Setup
Phone --> Battery --> Original Hard Back --> Case Mate Silicon Skin --> Case Mate Hard Outer
Normal Extended Battery Setup
Phone --> Extended Battery --> Replacement Hard Back (Supplied with Battery)
Current Extended Battery Setup with Case Mate Tough
Phone --> Extended Battery --> Case Mate Silicon Skin --> Case Mate Hard Outer
*** Proposed Setup ***
Phone --> Extended Battery --> Case Mate Silicon Skin (uncut) --> Powermat Receiver --> Case Mate Hard Outer
So I think my question is how thick is the Powermat Receiver and do you have to cut the silicon skin to mount it in a 'normal' setup?
