Wireless charging experiment
OK, after getting my One for Xmas and a little extra coin to spend, I am going to attempt to add on wireless charging.
Due to the nature of my work, I need a case to be on the phone. I destroyed two Thunderbolts before I finally corrected my rectal-cranial inversion and put it in a case. So I ordered up a UAG case for my One. After some research, I stumbled upon a little gem on ebay, a QI charging receiver with a microUSB connector. I figured for $8.50, why not? I will not
be putting the pad inside of the battery door, but between the phone and the case. I also ordered up a no-name QI charging pad.
I will update the thread when everything comes in and let you know how well (or poorly) the whole scheme works. I know I am losing my ability to plug into the USB port, but I can use a Samba app to transfer files if need be. Also of note, I don't use NFC, so I will never know whether it affects NFC's ability to read.
If anybody has any questions or feedback, please let me know. What I'm hoping to do with this little project is add some functionality to an already amazing device without causing any cosmetic harm or irreversible alterations to a sexy design I will hate to hide in a case.
