Are You Tired Of Using Wires To Charge Your EVO 4G? Homemade Inductive Charging Station Is Here…

At this point in time, I guess it would be safe to assume that when someone asks us about warranty left on our devices, we cannot help but to either laugh or at the very least, smile. The reason for this is that we all know how to properly break it by flashing the device(s) that we have. But there are others out there who truly believe that improvements to a device can also be done in the hardware side of things. XDA member asmd6230 is such one individual as he posted a guide with instructions on how to make your device be able to charge via induction. Now, this is a concept that comes from the Palm Pixi and a few other devices of its kind. Basically, you will simply lay your device in the charging station and it just starts charging, Olin and simple. Also, you do not need to spend them money on a Power Mat or any such product. You will need the back cover and the charger of a Pixi and a few tools to do this yourself.

Please ensure that you understand what you are doing and that you are at least somewhat familiar with soldering to avoid royally messing up your phone. Have fun and happy modding.

I looked into it and found the the palm pre also had this and some chap on the net had figured out how to shoehorn the unit into an evo. 

You can find more information in the original thread.
