    Hey Everyone,

    So I just got a wireless charging pad from someone who owned a now broken Lumia 920. As a result I figured I would give wireless charging a try on my 1020. I wanted to know if anyone found a better case {or modded one) than the wireless charging shell from nokia. I've been using a great rubber case for over a year now and having exposed ends like the charging shell does worries me a lot. (I also don't like that the camera is exposed). I was just wondering if anyone had found a rubber case that incorporates wireless charging, or one that can fit over the shell or a way to mod the shell to fit in a normal rubber case, etc, etc.
    Pretty stupid on Nokia's part if you ask me. I would have bought the charging pad and charging case LONG AGO is they'd have made it protective in the slightest.
    The only charging case I've found is the standard one (in yellow) from the Microsoft Store for $25.00
    This is the rubber case I've been using "black1"

    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    I use that one with mixed success. It has saved me on a couple of hip high drops (case come off, absorbs shock I guess), one time the pin (1/2) on inside cover broke had to return it to amazon (I paid more a year ago I believe then you did)
    I agree there should be a better solution and would welcome suggestions also.

    there was a thread here where someone had dismantled the Nokia wireless charger and put in one with more protection. maybe you could try that.

    Thanks. I think I will try that.
    Does anyone know what the charger is for the DT-900 pad is?
    http://www.amazon.com/Nokia-DT-900-W...pUvbUpU2774056

    I have the plate and the wire but not the plug (I can probably get it from the person who gave me the plate but if cheaply bought I could do that too)

    Thanks!

    Looks like an old Nokia charging port connector (2.5mm), but I will have to test this later on with a Nokia charger from my old brickphone. I agree with potatopower in having a look at what people did in that thread - I used a bunch of different methods to hack my own solution, which seemed a lot more difficult than most other people's (that said, I'm not particularly able in DIY :P)

    Just an update, the plug is just slightly bigger than an old Nokia charging connector. Darn.
