    Guys I've seen a lot of iq-stiker for Samsung devices, it is possible to use one of them with our great Lumia 1020, isn't it? Maybe with a silicon case. I've the same problem, here isn't easy to find the official qi charger cover, help me.

    Has anyone tried or considered using any of the qi wireless pad which many can be found on eBay for s4 phones, etc?
    I think it's possible to do, isn't it?

    I do wonder if the 925 charging shell could be used instead (obviously not the whole backing), its $15 instead of the cheapest (by far) I've found for the 1020 at $25
    Same thing, here in Italy I can't find the original Lumia 1020 qi case, but a lot of Lumia 925 &720 cases, is it possible to use instead the 1020 one?

    Nope... 925/720 qi coil has 3 contacts, while 1020 has 2 contacts.... so has 925/720 coil a ground contact? In this case you should be able to remove the unnecessary contact...

    Just performed a similar mod with my Speck Candyshell case for my 1020, referring to this thread for details. Installation was a bit difficult, if not nerve-wracking at times, but hopefully it holds together (as I want to be able to safely remove my phone from the case and swap out with the Camera Grip that I also purchased). I'm skeptical of my own handiwork, and I wouldn't call myself dexterous either which is why I created this post (for those like me, who can't DIY for the heck of things :P). Here's what I did:

    - First I tore the case apart like in oldpueblo's video, bending one corner of the case back and getting a flathead underneath, slowly peeling away the plastic on top.

    - Then, I removed the qi coil and the heat shielding (very very carefully).

    - This was the tricky part - it took a day or two to figure out how to align the connectors (seemed a little more difficult with this case for some reason, but this is the method I went with). I stuck on the heat shield so that the adhesive side originally stuck to the coil faces outward (away from the phone). Then, using some double-sided tape, I stuck a large, square section over the coil (on the side opposite the phone), with a smaller section attaching the coil + heatshield to the phone. It's important to have a smaller section of tape on the side facing the phone so that later on, the pad will stay attached to the phone to make alignment easier, but when pressed into the case, stay in place.

    - I then made sure that when the contacts were pressed firmly to the phone it charged when placed on the plate. Then, I stuck the pad to the phone.

    - I then got a 1x1cm square of an old credit card (kudos to sadude69), and stuck that to the back, right underneath where the pins/connector are using some duck tape (I also put a small square of double-sided tape on that for good measure). This will apply additional pressure on the pins and keep the pins connected.

    - Kudos again to sadude69, I placed the phone in the Candyshell case top-side first, and then pressed the phone into the case firmly. I then squeezed the case firmly around the area where the coil is placed, to make sure it stuck properly.

    - Then, I slowly removed the phone from the case (top-side first) so that the double-sided tape facing the phone would slowly unpeel, and not rip the coil off with it. I then removed the double-sided tape facing the phone so that it wouldn't stick to the phone.

    This is what it looks like now:

    It seems to hold a connection okay (I've had it for less than a day), but to be honest my dodgy handiwork will probably mean something will break. Hopefully this thread helps some people with a similar case, as I found a few of the other methods in this thread didn't seem to work for me. Also, I tried putting the slab of plastic (that covers the coils and connections and faces the phone on the charging cover) back on, but it seems to interfere with the connectors and stops wireless charging. In the future, I'd like to figure out a way to put it back on without ruining the connection (I have a feeling that the plastic pulls the connectors away from the phone, stopping the connection from occurring) as it looks cleaner and will probably hold the connectors in place better.

    P.S credits to sadude69 and oldpuebo for their posts on similar methods

    Do you know which lead is the hot lead? My usb port stopped working on my 1020 so I am curious if could hack up a micro usb cord to connect directly to the wireless charging leads and charge the phone.

    I am also contemplating an internal install on the 1020. My question is; is the pcb-like board necessary? According to this video:

    [please search youtube for "lumia 1020 920 coil"]

    one can use only the coil from a 920 internal board, which can be bought for only $5.99 on eBay. If this is indeed possible, and with the aid of your pictures, the coil would fit under the battery. The issues with having the pcb-board taking up place would be eliminated. Im thinking of sanding the inside of the case with a Dremel as well if necessary.

    If i dont do a internal install i will just stick the coil onto the back of the phone and find some neat way to cover it. I think the phone becomes too bulky with any cover.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Quick - No Tools Method.

    1x TPU Gel Case + 1xCC-3066 Charging Back

    Fit CC-3066.
    Stretch TPU Gel Case over back including charging cover.
    Gel case and CC-3066 can now be removed as one piece as in Pic. 1

    Best on a warm day / in a warm room.

    My TPU Gel case is the type with a cover for the lens area and holes for the side buttons.
    Holes for buttons now act as handy guides to press the edge of the case to operate buttons - Actually easier than before !
    This Gel Case is transparent black/smoked but others work too !

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also . . .1020 Custom Wireless Charger Pad . . .

    Cut a hole (1.8" / 46mm) in a cheap eBay charging pad (eg. 3.99 itm.no.161368473387)
    Cover with vinyl tape.
    Best to remove top cover of charging pad before drilling hole and then reassemble . . .
    These cheap charging pads have the power port at the same end as the PCB so they have clear area through the hole !
    Image of back to show model I used.

    Hi, sorry to bump this thread up for a "dead" device (unfortunate lack of support only two years out)- I will be getting a 1020 and was hoping to find out what some are using for induction coil/circuitry donors that will connect to the charging terminals (not the Amazon addons that end up plugging into the USB anyhow). The charge case is simply not available in my country for reasonable prices, if they are to be found at all. In this case, I'd rather gut something cheap and connect to the terminals and affix to the inside of a case.

    Furthermore, I'd also like to make a charging stand that has two small prongs that protrude up and engange with the charge terminals, those such items as polarity, phase, on/off cycles, etc. are still unknown.

    Any tips?

    It is very difficult to connect the 1020 with wirless charging cover to the wireless charging pillow (DT -901), sometimes it connects easily, but unfortunately most of the times it does't. I don't know if the problem is related to the wireless charger or to the cover or to the phone. Any help please?
