    I purchased a wireless charger, just to find out that the charging component in my L920 is not working. I will have it fixed by Nokia.

    Until that time, I wont be able to check if an aluminum layer between the phone and the wireless charger will interfere with the wireless charging? Has anyone tried it?
    My gut feeling tells me that I would affect it, but the rumoured 928 will have aluminum body.

    I would like to order a case similar to

    I don't believe it will. Try putting aluminum foil between the phone and charger?

    That's what I would have liked to do, but the coil on the phone needs to be fixed before I can try it. I just wanted to order the cover while my phone is being repaired.

    it is cheap enough that I would just do it anyways. Could always try and go to a cell phone store that has the wireless charging setup and test the foil thing there.

    I've heard a horror story when a guy put aluminum foil (i believe) on the back of his HP Touchpad because it looked nice. And the touchstone (wireless charger) burned out in a puff of smoke - don't quote me on it, but i think some caution is merited here
    just my 2 cents

    if im wrong though, dont hesitate to correct me - i would think the WPC thought of this
