I have had the Galaxy Nexus for a better part of a year, and recently, charging became an issue. Sometimes when I plugged in my phone, it does not charge and I have to wiggle the end of the cord a bit until I see it start to charge. Now this requires me to keep my phone very steady in order for it to charge, but being a person who constantly checks his phone every 5 minutes , I cannot keep myself from touching it. Now, having to move the wire around and carefully place my charging phone every time has become a huge hassle, so I had the ingenious idea to have it charge wirelessly like the Palm phones. Of course, one google search later I found that many people had already had this great idea and implemented it quite well.
Throughout the course of this week I will begin working on this for my phone (waiting for all the supplies to ship in!). I will be following a few of the guides that others have created, and will put up links to each.
EDIT: Apparently I cannot add links in my first few posts
but I shall find a way to give credit where it is due.
Items (That I will be using, subject to change):
Galaxy Nexus (standard cover - NOT the extended battery one)
Palm Touchstone charging dock
Palm data cable
Palm Pixi Touchstone cover
Neodymium disc magnets (1/4" diameter)
Copper Foil tape (conductive adhesive) OR short wires
Mini 4-head screwdriver
Tips for Items: Be careful when buying the Palm Touchstone dock, it usually does NOT ship with the data cable - can be very misleading. Either have to buy separately or find them together. Thanks to both eBay and Amazon - the total cost falls under $25.
Pictures will be provided with each step. Project will begin soon!
