Qi Wireless Cell Phone Chargers

Here's a quick summary of how I made two wireless chargers, each from bubinga and purple heart, to fit Qi wireless charging PCBs and coils that I found on AliExpress.

First charger. Magnets securely hold certain phones (in my case, a Nexus 5) above the surface of the table either vertically or horizontally. Channel routed for micro-USB cable prior to final gluing.

Second wireless charger, with magnets and shelf for phones without magnets (for a friend's Nexus 4)
