Battery Full [MOD] Sero 7 Pro Inductive Charging Pad

Sero 7 Pro modded with a Verizon Wireless Inductive Charger pack from a HTC Thunderbolt.

Step 1:
Solder wires to the + and - of the back of the battery shell. Red is positive 5v and Black is Ground


Step 2:
Remove the inductive module from the back shell


Step 3:
CAREFULLY PEAL BACK THE PCB AND INDUCTIVE COIL
SERIOUSLY BE CAREFUL IT IS STUCK WITH STICKY TAPE
YOU CAN BEND THE COIL PORTION BUT NOT THE PCB.



Step 4:
Solder the points for positive and negative to the points in the picture below


Final Step:
Position the module exactly like you see I did below. It will overhang onto the safe tape portion of the PCB and allow a nice flush mount of the back of the Sero 7 Shell when you put it back on. If it does not close flush your NFC may not work correctly because of the NFC push pins on the bottom left of the picture.

Yes just wouldn't try it while inductively charging. I have a old PC I don't care about I may try it later but I really don't have a need other than for educational purposes.

This inspired me to mod my Sero 7 Pro as well. I used a Palm Touchstone and Pixi coil. I need to beef up the attraction to get a better connection but it does charge.

Any issues with this mod interfering with other sensors?

I'm interested in how this turned out. I use a Palm phone and the Touchstone charger is awsome, and cheap.

http://www.amazon.com/Palm-Touchston...0&tagbase=abba

Scroll down to "Frequently Bought Together"

Palm Touchstone Charging Dock for Palm Pre by Palm $10.16
Palm Pre Original Smart Phone AC USB Wall Adapter + Original Palm PRE Charging USB 2.0 Data Cable by Palm $5.99
Palm Computing Div. Pixi Touchstone Back Cover by Palm Computing Div. $4.00
All three for $20.15 us.

I bought the Touchstone at that price and the back cover when it was $2. I was able to use the Sero 7 Pro AC adapter and a USB cable with a narrow end to fit into the Touchstone. I pretty much followed the same positioning and wiring as xboxexpert. I get some odd touchscreen behavior when it charges. I didn't snap any pics of the process, but can try to get a video of it in action.
