Default QI wireless charging mod

So my SW2's USB port cover broke. Thinking about solutions I thought about a QI wireless charging mod. Just put together a prototype and it works well


That's with an old Palm Pre touchstone charger, so I need to wait until I get my QI stuff in the mail before I proceed. I'll keep you posted

Gonna see about using this and modding it to fit under the SW2 back.

Then I'll cover the USB port with the foam and shape it into an OEM stock look., hopefully with no bulge from the port. This should retain waterproofing and maybe even make it more resistant, cause the USB port is the where it fails first under water. With that completely sealed the device has nowhere for water to enter.

Although I can't find any documentation, it seems USB port covers from Sony Xperia are indeed replaceable with out disassembling the device. Apparently all you need is the correct angle of force pulling on the cover and it pops out. I can't find info on what angle is required.
