    Uhhhh no this is not official. It's a wiring/soldering job by some random enterprising person.

    Not that it's bad, but you're implying its made by MS which its not.

    first up, this is my opinion. I think this is a terrible DIY job and he wants $50 for it. Watch the youtube video he posts and see that he has issues putting the wires on and closing it without them coming off. I did not have the time yet to do this myself and only tried the one below which occupies your USB port, but a flat ribbon cable would be a much better solution for this. So you may say, easy for me to say, but I sure would not post a half-assed solution on youtube and ask $50 for it.
    do it yourself and save the money.

    Looks like the price has been lowered to $39. Also looks like wmpoweruser did a good write up here:
    mspoweruser.com/diy-cover-suggests-lumia-640-xl-supports-wireless-charging/

    A bit rough but hey, if MS won't do it I'm glad someone is.
