Lightbulb Wireless charging, a new concept (DNA transplant)

The lack of wireless charging was a huge downside to me, a trivial thing I know, but I used the hell out of it on my DNA.

The M8 metal case causes a problem for wireless charging, so the concept I have is as follows:

1. Using a 3d scanner/printer design and print a plastic back

2. Transplant DNA wireless charging to M8


Number 1 is easy, I have access to the materials

Number 2, questionable:

Is the DNA's wireless charger connected to a battery or in some way to the motherboard? I cannot find any information on this that would give me a green light to start the project. Any input form anyone knowledgeable in the area will be appreciated.

Haven't people been using the receiver under a case that connects to charge port with a flat right angle connector?

They have, however for me its not an option (I'm too ocd for that lol, and often carry my phone without a case). I am after a built in solution that will leave the USB port open.

2nd thought: tapping into the usb port, splicing the wireless receiver directly to it.
