    How to make a Powermat case for Droid 1! PICS included!

    Hey, So earlier today on this forum I told someone I would research the touchstone wireless charging hack and see if I could make it work for the Droid1.

    The problem was you would have to void your warranty to solder the correct wires. So I came up with a better idea, salvage the powermat back case from an EVO powermat set, and use the electronics inside to make a powermat case for the droid 1. This was SUPRISINGLY easy, took about 5 mins to get the electronics to work, no soldering required really.


    I will post a video of the working electronics, and pics for a how to in the second post! But I have yet to bondo a case together to make it look good, so that will be what comes next.


    Enjoy everyone! We now have wireless charging for our Droid 1's!!!

    Looks awesome... i wonder if you could solder it so you would still have access to your USB port.

    Sweet! Good job! Show how you made the case too! I believe my plastic molding skills are weak!

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks for the great response, always feels good when people enjoy an idea on these forums.

    I finished A case for it, but I'm not happy with it completely, as it's JUST too thick for the magnets in the powermat the help it align completely, but I'l probably post a couple pics of it none the less. I saw a droid 2 extended battery cover for 8 bucks that I am going to attempt to use, but thats a couple weeks out, in the meantime I plan on sanding the case I have to make it thinner so the powermat can align correctly every time.




    Thanks again, hopefully we can make this simple so everyone can have a go!

    Awesome idea!

    Or an even easier thing to do, so that we don't have to void any warranties would just be to get a female micro-usb, then splice the wires into the extender for the powermat, then bondo it into our hacked up case. This way it would still have a usb port, but the powermat would always stay plugged in without voiding the warranty.


    Great idea, now let's get the ball rolling!
