Now is your chance to add wireless charging to your existing iPhone without using screwdrivers or soldering iron with this hack. All you will need to do spend a little and the following accessories :
- A wireless charging receiver card for your iPhone. A quick search of somewhere like Amazon will turn up a number of solutions, such as BEZALEL I6 Qi wireless charger receiver patch module (price at publication is $16.25).
- A Qi-compatible charger. Any of the ones listed here will do just fine, but there are many more you can choose from out there.
- A non-metallic flexible case or cover no thicker than 5mm (only required if the receiver coil you’ve chosen doesn’t come with a case). Apple’s own silicone cases work well (although they are expensive), as do the cheapo versions you can pick up from eBay or Amazon.
