Galaxy Note II Wireless Charging Gets a No Solder Method

Late last month, we brought you news of a wireless charging mod for the Galaxy Note 2. Even though it was labeled as an easy mod, it did require some soldering. While soldering isn’t terribly difficult, there are many who aren’t comfortable with it. Now, there is a method that doesn’t require soldering.

XDA Senior Member nm8 wrote up a tutorial that isn’t vastly different from the original by XDA Senior Member Ryan_G. The biggest difference, as explained by nm8:

It very simple, cheap, clean, and easy to do. No soldering required… so I will call it Origami Wireless Charging

The mod requires pretty much the same pieces. You’ll still need the Palm stuff, along with the other materials. The key difference is that users will use etching instead of soldering. The new set of materials you’ll need are:

1. copper clad laminate (pyralux) – flexible PCB
2. Copper tape
3. ferric chloride solution – for etching
4. Alcohol or acetone – to clean up pcb after etching
5. Water proof/permanent marker pen, tweezer, nipper/scissor, mobile phone pry tools, soldering iron, bla blah

From there, it’s just following the picture-guided instructions, and you’ll have wireless charging in no time. For more details, check out either the mod thread or this post in Ryan_G’s thread.
