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.

It appears, after looking at wireless charging on the DNA and several other phones, it actually goes through the motherboard itself, so a transplant is a no go.

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