Re: Super Simple 5 minutes Wireless Charging Mod for Samsung SG3
I'll test it out later, but isn't that redundant?
Connecting phone via USB will charge your phone...

Just wondering. I might mindlessly place it on the touchstone after connecting to the computer.

The USB cable attached to the phone might not let you rest it on the Touchstone easily, so you'll be mindful when that happens.







I'm just waiting on my copper tape to arrive and then I can get started on this myself.

it's a little more complicated but it is possible. There is a Youtube video that shows how, I came across it yesterday by accident.

Same mod but for Samsung Galaxy S2.
Only if you know how to solder and have a 12 watt soldering iron with very steady hands.

Charging current can be measured using the app from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2076078

Tried the suggested app but it didn't report anything other than -1. I'm using that nifty rom from Task, 2013.02.10.

From what I can tell (from my own limited testing) there are no ill effects to be had from attaching a USB cable to the device while it is actively charging on the touchstone. The device switches to USB charge, and back to touchstone once the cable is removed. Before someone asks: no it doesn't charge twice as fast.
