Hack your nightstand into a Qi inductive wireless charging station

Remembering all the interest in Julie’s recent Gadget Diary about the Qi inductive wireless charger, I know some of you will be interested in reading an article I recently found on the Huffington Post site.  They have an article about modifying a nightstand to turn it into a Qi inductive wireless charging station.  Basically, a YouTube user named lobbamobba modified an Ikea nightstand to sink the Qi charging base into a corner of the top.  He does this from the bottom of the top – if you know what I mean – so there’s nothing to see but a smooth tabletop.  Watch the above video to learn how he did it, and you can find the full Huffington Post article here.

  2. Great idea! I’ll figure out a way to do this with my setup if I can ever solve the issue with the SGS3’s display coming on after it’s almost charged.
