Tips And Tricks #10 Creating A Wireless Charging Other Half

Standard

Here are the steps on how to create a Wireless Charging Other Half.

What you need:
– Double sided glue tape or superglue
– QI receiver pad. I used following in this 1st
experiement: http://www.ebay.ie/
itm/290994467448 (But any 5V flat QI receiver
will do).
– QI transmitter pad. In demo I used that Nokia one, but it really sucks as it is quite picky about thee orientation. Most
likely any generic QI charger would work.
– Some conductive wire, I just cutted legs off
from generic resistors like this http://goo.gl/

– Soldering iron to connect 5V pins to right
places. (receiver above has 5V and GND in
different order that the pins on device I’ll try to find receiver which
orientation is better in the future.
– Small dremel & sharp knife (optional, if you
want to shave half millimeter plastic off from back
cover. Makes receiver fit better under the cover.
Although it does with even without shaving).

Howto:
– Shave off some plastics, and put receiver about
over the place where battery is. Test that back cover closes and it looks ok.
– Either use double sided tape (I used that) or glue, and put receiver module in place.
– Put some double sided tape over the small hole where charger pins would connect.
– Solder wires to 5V and GND, and bend them in shape and press them down so they connect to double sided tape, you can also use glue to secure them in place. But good double sided glue tape is enough.

We first seen Wireless Charging Phone with the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. After that several companies followed Nokia like LG with the Nexus 4 and LG G2, Samsung with the Galaxy S4 and HTC, Apple is also going to add wireless charging for its next flagship.

What about Jolla?

Yesterday Vesa-Matti  tweeted a Jolla Phone on top of the Fatboy Wireless Charging Pillow and guess what  its Charging!!!. It was created by Jonni Rainisto one of Jolla’s engineers. This is also the same how wireless charging works on the Lumia 820, Lumia 925, S4 where you need to attach a wireless charging shell.

Jonni also posted a photo showing the side view of the phone. Here we can confirm that Wireless Charging  works since the Wireless Charging Pillow display a light.

Vessa also promised that Jonni will post the details on Talk Maemo

4G LTE on Jolla Phone

You can also see from the image above that the Jolla Phone supports 4G. Jolla promised that it will be available to all Jolla Phones next year.

Thanks for the tip Ru!
