Nokia Lumia 800 modded to support wireless charging
As you know the Nokia Lumia 800 doesn’t have wireless charging – well, we should say all but one doesn’t. In the video at the bottom, Oli Gill mods his Nokia Lumia 800 to add wireless charging with the help of a Touchstone charger.
Let us warn you now; this mod is not for the faint of heart. It requires disassembly, cutting up the insides and soldering – needless to say it voids your warranty. If you’re still ready to dive into this mod, check out the video below.
Oli speeds through the disassembly part to get to the actual mod, but he provides a link in his YouTube description to a wonderful disassembly tutorial. The metal inside the phone actual blocks the charge box from working with the charger, so he uses a Dremel to remove some of the metal. He then mounts the charger inside the phone, solders it, and there you go – wireless charging on the Nokia Lumia 800 with a Touchstone.

Hey charlene s. How u doin? ;P ..wireless charging is something that everyone should focus on considering the puny batteries these companies provide..or wait for the trend of razr maxx like phones to catch on. Coz if I try what he does in the video, I may solder my finger to the phone and then PA will have an article about the first humanoid phone...:D

Since this would be the 1st step in the creation of the Borg, I always assumed it would be an apple device which began the assimilation.
