    I had trouble getting the coils to line up last week. When I put the phone on landscape on my dt 910 stand, it would light up but very slowly charge if at all and get warm. It's hard to be consistent with lining it up just right. After many hours of thought, here is my solution. I took off the back cover to see where the center of the coil would be (just below the MS logo) and put it on the charger to see where the phone would have to line up. Binder clips worked perfectly:

    Here is the phone in position charging. I put my finger above the volume up button and when I put it down, I slide it until it hits my finger so the volume up button lines up with the edge of the charger. This is how to align the 2 coils

    I used a binder clip and rubber band to attach it. There are 2 rubber wings on the bottom that catch the binder clip when it slides. It holds it in place nicely

    Next I put binder clips on the edge of the dt 900 charger in my car. I drop the phone between the clips and it holds it secure. The silver parts of the clip act as a guard to lock it in.

    Again I line up the volume up button with the edge of the charger to align.

    Hmm, the DT-900 works without a mod here.

    I would actually like to see someone try to relocate the charger coil inside the backplate of the 950XL.

    That's going to be difficult, since the coil has two pins that align with two points on the phone. You'd have to add wiring to make sure they're touching.

    Damn, so that's not gonna work. -_- I guess I will have to remove the bottom part of my CR 200 then.

    Is it possible to take the DT-910 apart and raise the coils up higher so it can line up with the 950XL's charging pad??

    Can an additional coil be wired in to the existing one?

    Yes it does work, but I tend to not line it up well when I drop it down. It gets warm and slowly charges. The binder clips act as guides to make sure I align it correctly and quickly without looking. Too bad it doesn't have magnetic guides like PMA

    I had it warming up yesterday too and telling me that Hello had been disabled due to many failed login attempts, although lined up well. Could be due to the TPU.

    FYI: I had it charging from empty to full this night without any cover, worked well. Maybe I'll order a Mozo soon. :)

    Why did my 950xl work well over Nokia DT-900? I just aligned the phone over the charger pad, and it started to charge.

    Supposedly the 900 has 3 coils vs. 1 for the 910

    I notice the dt-900 will initiate a charge easily, but if I am not precise the phone will get hot. The binder clips are the only way I can quickly ensure correct placement. I would hate to break a $650 phone because of the qi charger

    Where do you place your phone on dt900?

    It does and doesn't for me. I have two, one at home (in a powerboard) and one in the office. It charges fine in the office, when i leave it on the one at home overnight, it only charges to 60% (and that's all night). i haven't yet tested without a powerboard and plugging straight into a wall; anyone confirm that this may be the issue? I'll try tonight :P But it never happened with my 930.

    I am having problem with DT-900 with my 950 XL. It charges very slow and phone gets overheated until charging stops with the notification light on the DT-900 blinking rapidly. After a while it starts to charge again, only to meet with another overheat. I initially left the phone on DT-900 overnight as I always do with my Lumia 1520 and the whole charge->overheat->charge cycle happened throughout the night. Sometimes, by just leaving the phone on the DT-900 for 10-15 minutes is enough to "cook" it until overheat. Sigh... I have 2X DT-900 that can't be used. I wonder if DT-903 works better.

    I have 3 DT-900's they don't charge too quickly but I haven't had any problems with them overheating or not charging mine or my wife's 950. You might have a defective phone or back cover.

    I have no trouble with my DT-900s. Do you have a case, or a different back cover than the original? None of my chargers needed any kind of modification. Make sure when u place it on the charger, that the camera hangs freely and the back of the phone has no space between it and the charger. If the camera rests on the charger, it creates a space between the two that might cause overheating.

    Well, my charger is with the FatBoy pillow. I tried removing the pillow but it's still the same. Maybe I'll need to try to let the cameras hangs freely.

    I did that - it got to the point where the 950 XL thinks it is charging, but it's really not...

    If you are good with a soldering iron, you can extend the black wire in the DT-910 case and probably move it all the way up to the top of the stand... but I'm not quite sure it will work (I'm within 1-2cm of the top).

    You can see how to do this here (I cut more off the top of the charger frame and got it slightly higher):
    forum.xda-developers.com/google-nexus-5/accessories/nokia-dt-910-mod-to-ballistic-sg-tough-t2576422

    Moving the sticker is probably also hard, but if it's done right, you don't have to open all these plastic cases...

    I have modified my Mozo leather back plate to work with my CR200 incar charger / dt-901 / dt-900

    I simply removed the thin metalic shield, and moved the coil lower (using my NL1020 & NL920 as a guide for placement)

    then covered up the metalic tape with celotape.

    Works on every QI charger I own :)

    http://1drv.ms/1TdVqtV (before)
    http://1drv.ms/1R0xkAU (during)
    http://1drv.ms/1TdUO7w (after)

    I have noticed that the dt-900 charger is only 750mA (3/4 of an amp) whereas the supplied charger is 3amps,

    the CR200 charger is also 750mA which is less than a third of the required charging power needed, in my opinion the 950XL uses about 500mA even when not in use, so it will take significantly longer to charge fully using Nokia wireless charging devices than using the AC100X charger from the box.

    Funny you say that, i took my charger apart and relocated the coils... Not sure how long it will take to charge but it's charging now...

    Hello all, I just took my nokia stand apart and moved the coils up, no rewire or anything. Did it with a pocket knife (I did break 2 star bit screwed) but 100% functional.
