Add Wireless Charging To Any Smartphone

We've seen plenty of phones that support wireless charging, but it's still not a common feature on most phones. Over on Instructables, user Harari shows you how to add a wireless charging system to just about any mobile phone that charges with a USB.

The hack uses an old Palm Touchstone charger, and a handful of cheap coils and wires. When you're done, you'll be able to simply rest your phone on the Touchstone to charge your phone. It's similar to a hack we've seen before, but the end result is cleaner.

As with any power-related hack, you'll want to proceed at your own risk, but if you have an old phone you want to try this out on, it's certainly worth a shot. Head over to Instructables for the full guide with lots of pictures.

    Great instructable! I did this on my i9100 too, except I ran everything using copper tape only.
