Default Adding wireless charging & magnets?

The Nexus 5/7 has Qi charging built-in and will stick to the magnetic Nexus Wireless Charging Pad.

I have seen this for the Note 3 that will add Wireless charging:

and this magnetic car dock that comes with a metal plate:

Is it possible to add both to the Note 3 without changing to a thicker battery cover?

I just spoke to another user via PM.

Apparently the nGroove Snap holds the phone pretty well using just the official Samsung Wireless Charging Cover, without an additional metal plate. Looking at pics online, i can see that there's some more metal in that cover, maybe that's why it works.

I had also read about people putting the metal plate behind their batteries - but I have no idea how thick it actually is.
