Plug Lego QI Charger [Tutorial] #noSolder

Hello, this tutorial is for people who want a wireless charger that is cheap, easy to assemble, and easy to modify/decorate (and works with cases). Inspired by this thread (too tricky for me)

You will need the following:

1) Make the base. The bottom slab is 8x8, has to be thin as coil is placed ontop! (Note my base is gridded and I have little coil decorations, this is purely aethetic)

2) Add coil

3) Add the bottom cover using a 6x6 panel and two 8x2 (Don't press down too hard or you might damage the circuit board

4) Optional fill in gap between planks

5) Flip over and you're finished!

All this for US $15.58 + some lego!
