DIY Samsung Galaxy S3 Wireless Charging kit Instructions

If you own the Samsung Galaxy S3 you may have wondered what has happened to all the talk regarding the wireless charging kit – well sadly there is still no sign of the official accessory, but what if I told you that for around $25 / £16 you could make your own in a matter of minutes?

Sadly I wasn’t clever enough to discover this, but if you head over to the XDA Developer forums you can see that you can mod the Palm Pixi’s wireless charging kit in just 5 minutes. What’s great is that no special tools or materials are needed and you don’t need to solder anything either!

Did you follow the guide? If so, did you get it working OK?
