    why do u need a wireless charger blah blah...
    evo 3d doesn't come with wireless charging capapbilities... the only way to get wless charging is with a special case and haven't seen any of those around...

    I didn't think any phone came with wireless charging capabilities but like powermat don't they make back parts that will fit on the phone and wirlessly charge it? I no it can be wirelessly charged I just don't know where to find one made for the 3d.

    yeah, they give you a case... but there are no wireless charging cases available for the evo 3d...

    if you want to try other options, they all involve some diy and/or smoldering....

    Don't count on anything coming out as the phone has been end of life'd by all major carriers.

    You can make one, without soldering even, however, you end up with a knob sticking out the charge port. If your phone happens to fall on that, kiss your charge port goodbye and your only method of charging will be to pull the battery. And that is if it doesn't break the circuitboard too badly.

    Also, keep in mind that wireless charging is very ineficient. There is a lot of loss when doing it and you may only be able tsend a limited amount of power, making charges take longer. Not to mention it must be placed right, so either you need accuracy or magnets. Magnets interfere with gps and compass. Another problem is it will add thickness to the phone and you cannot cover the charger with a case.

    Since you have to align it anyway, buy an OEM dock. they slide it with no force, charges fast and leaves your phone sitting in a position to be used as a weather station and alarm clock. A lot cheaper and easier too.

    A dock is awesome when you use your phone as an alarm clock. I went with a Fleabay OEM dock. I did have to mod it a touch to make it work with my TPU case. The micro USB needed to stick out a little more to clear the case. The mod was easy to do and only required a hot glue gun.
