Wireless charging isn't brand new technology anymore, but it can still be pretty expensive. This build is cheap, can work with almost any smartphone, and can be fit into almost anything you want to turn into a charging pad.
This video, from the HouseholdHacker YouTube channel, shows you how simple it can be to turn anything into a wireless charging pad. Once you have the charger and receiver piece, you hardly need any technical know-how to get it all working.
The one caveat is that you have to have a case on your phone in order to hold the wireless charging pack in place. If a game or movie case isn't your style, you can get creative and fit it into a book or even into your nightstand itself. Check out the link below for more information on where to get the parts you need.
