Powermat wireless charging is now available to view here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2158978

================================================== ================================================== ==================
First let me say big thanks to Ryan_G for creating the Note 2 Wireless charging mod - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1951493

The style/technique I am going to show you is an improvement of my version on page 18 in the above thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=171

It's very simple, cheap, clean, and easy to do. No soldering required... just folding strips of copper foil tape, and since this is the age of gangnam style, I will call it

Origami Style



Quote:

You need:
1. Palm Pre Touchstone back cover = http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2006506637...84.m1439.l2649
2. Copper foil tape (6mm) = http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3604303203...84.m1439.l2649
3. Palm touchstone dock with wall charger - you can use an old charger with a 5v with a minimum 1amp and a mini usb plug - http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8474/8...959be5ac_c.jpg

Quote:

The charging rate of this mod is around 12% per hour based on my testing...


==========================
Quote:

S-Pen problems ???

I have also experienced this, and it happens when you place the Palm receiver is a little high. You should place the receiver in a low position. Make sure the Palm receiver's bottom is almost aligned to the bottom of the battery. Please see Pic 7 below.
==========================

pics:

Stick the charging unit on the back cover so that it will sit approximately on top of the battery.
Cut about 3-4 inches of 6mm copper foil tape then cut it lentghwise.


I'll let the pics do the talking....
1.


2.


3.


4.


5.


6. You need to remove the rubber sticker (see inside green circle) from the touchstone case, and put it on top of the contact points (rolled copper). This will put presure on the contacts as you fit the Note 2's back cover.


7. Below pic, green arrows show the approximate location of the copper on the back cover. The copper contacts on the back cover don't need to be perfectly aligned with rolled copper contacts on the phone, but this is your choice to make... (look at the green arrows again, and pic no. 10 below) Click link just below the picture for bigger image.

8. On the back of the phone, on the right side of the battery are the terminals, stick another copper tape with rolled ends on each. Please note the top contact is the Positive, and the bottom is Negative, don't panic if the bottom copper tape comes in contact with the little screw as they are both negative.


9. You can see in pic below the rubber sticker I mentioned earlier in picture no. 6

bigger pic here: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8489/8...f1333d95_k.jpg


10. This is how they will line up... don't forget to insulate the other exposed parts of the copper tape. I use Kapton tape, but you can use anything like electrical tape.



################################################## ###########

I have successfully used this mod with a Rock case. I had to sand the inner side of the case though.

Mod versions:

V1 = "Z" connector, needs etching and most expensive and time consuming
video


V2 = Origami

V3 = modified V1. Does not require etching so saves time and dosh.
video below.

Please NOTE, the mod below causes S-Pens problems. The only reson is that the receiver is a little too high. Once I replaced the contacts to the original "Z" design, the problem with S-Pen was gone.

I was also hoping to do this mod to a powermat wireless charging unit, but I was disappointed to find out the powermat receiver unit is so thick. See pictures below:

image below shows the actual innards of the powermat universal receiver which is charging my wife's Desire HD phone. Look at the light on the left from the powermat dock, and the green light on the phone.


image below shows the palm toughstone front alongside the powermat


and below shows the back sides ;-}


palm/powermat porn:


here we can clearly see the thickness on the powermat.


Only hope we have to be able to utilize the powermat is if there are Note 2 back cases that have more room inside to accommodate the thickness of the powermat, or if there is a thinner powermat receiver.

Don't forget to put some insulating tape over all that exposed copper... You just want the ends exposed.
