    So the other day I was searching Amazon for Qi chargers and came across this:

    Amazon.com: Ubest DIY Qi Wireless Charger PCBA Circuit Board With Qi-Standard Coil Wireless Charging Accessories: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Basically, a bare circuit board Qi charger for pretty cheap (About 13USD), Ships from China.

    So I bought two. Arrived yesterday, they threw in a bonus capacitive stylus BTW.

    Now, I have seen mods for the Nokia charger here on WP Central, but this opens up more opportunities for unique/cool/silly Qi mods.

    For example, here's one I found over at XDA-devs, starts out with a custom wood stand, but later in the thread someone made a 3D printed version:
    [DIY] Magnetic, Wireless Wood Charging Stand | Google Nexus 5 | xda-developers
    (I'm not so sure about the magnet though)

    Myself? I took the lazy way and stuffed one into a cassette case:

    Red light: No device
    Blinking red light: Weak alignment, I think.
    Blue light: Charging
    No Light: Finished charging

    I'll probably do something fancier some time later.

    Nice! For $13, I see a creative thread popping up for people to show how they used this.
    • Attach it to the underside of a desk
    • Wire it up in the car
    • Create an elegant desk stand from favorite or colorful materials

    Possibilities are endless!
