Default Any compatible qi charging receiver?

I just bought this phone and I wonder has anyone tried any internal qi charging receiver tag for it?

I'm sure they should work just fine, however, there isn't any tag built to the dimension of the Infuse, I just need to make sure the gold contacts location matches and it fit correctly in the phone.

It look like the receiver for the S4 i9500 may work. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Qi-Wireless-...-/231124647518

theres no wireless charging pins on the infuse. you can not use it with wireless charging unless you rig something to go to the microusb port.

The i997 doesn't have wireless charging ports built in like the S3, S4, GN2 or GN3.

Seems like one would need to create a terminal for the receiver.

These two videos show similar wireless charging hack for the i9000. The i997 is similar to the i9000. It looks like the idea is to get a wire from the + pin on the USB port to the back of the battery to connect the copper coil receiver complex.

For the qi, I think you can use any of the receiver available, minding the +/- connectors.

I have not tried it but it does look interesting. The other question I have is whether or not simply connect the +/- on the wireless receiver to the battery's +/- connector will work. It would be simpler to use some copper tape and connect it directly to the battery terminals. If it does work, obviously you can save a lot of hassle bypassing soldering the wire part.
