Note 2 Powermat Wireless Charging mod
Hi peeps.....after the success of my Origami Wireless Charging mod for Note 2 : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1986016
which was based on Ryan_G's original Palm Touchstone Mod, I was quite unhappy because I was limited to Bumper and very thin cases due to the limitation of the Palm Touchstone. This is why I looked for other cheaper alternatives... and here comes Powermat to the rescue.....
Both Palm and Powermat wireless chargers pump out 5V and 1amp, but the main advantage of the Powermat is it allows a little bit of a gap/space between the wireless charger and the wireless receiver... or in other words, you can use a normal thickness case with your phone while charging.....
I used the following:
1. Powermat receiver for Blackberry Pearl 8110/8120/8130
2. Powermat Wireless charging dock
3. Flexible PCB - copper clad laminate (pyralux)
4. Soldering iron
5. Kapton tape
Items 3 and 5 are optional... I'm sure you can use copper wire or copper foil tape, and electrical tape. I already have those items so I just utilized them.
My UNscientific measurement for charging rate 14% per hour
Technique is again a bit or origami and a bit of soldering.....
2 - The POSITIVE terminal is the one on the LEFT side
3 the circular magnet was broken into pieces here (now replaced with a new unbroken magnet) but charging still worked
