Make a convenient wireless nightstand phone charger with this Adafruit Qi Charging Phone Case & Book tutorial
DIY your own inductive charging phone case! It’s easy to build a base charger from a recycled hardcover book and never plug in your phone again.
For this project you will need:
Univeral Qi wireless charging transmitter
Universal Qi charging module to match your phone (my Nexus 4 is reverse short microUSB) or Qi charging sleeve (if you have an iPhone 5)
Phone case (mine is from Rearth)
Hardcover book you don’t want to read
Sharp utility or craft knife
Pen or pencil
