So I have this Qi Reciever for my phone that I don’t use very often, and I just realized that I can possibly use this to charge my kickass gt2b mod. Pics:
Oh yeah I should mention the enclosure is the madmunkey v1 from @FLATLINEcustoms
awesome idea and I think it can work. I want that munkey so bad!
Don’t solder it straight to the lipo inside. It needs to go into a charging circuit then to the battery. So you need to solder the positive and negative to the positive and negative of the USB input in parallel.
there is a tiny BMS attached to the battery, would I be finde soldering to it?
just do it like @seanpain4 suggested. Parallel to the incoming USB wires and you are all set.
@link5505 this is so awesome! Hope it works for you!
@Maxid did you see the MadMunkey thread yet?

Nice work Mason!
now add qi charging to your board!
too inefficient to work
great idea! This coupled with the battery LED monitor would be great to check battery status at a glance and easily charge it. I’m a huge fan of QI chargers (on several of my phones and tablets).
I got this coming in the mail, I have a small cutout for the LEDS in the front side so it should be nice and easy
exactly. only sucky part is $5 shipping for a 2.50 item.
yeah but oh well
ok so none of this really works after all. The 4 LED battery indicator didn’t work from the get go, and I’ve had this controller on the charging pad for a week now and it still isn’t fully charged. In fact, I think it just died! Whenever I put the controller on the pad I get LEDs on to indicate that I am charging, but whenever I take it off, it won’t turn on. I have the controller super glued together, so taking this apart will not be fun.
Any suggestions? I have microusb connectors lying around somewhere, but I’m not 100% sure where the positive and negative pins are.
If you have one connected, can’t you use a multimeter to find the +/- pins? Maybe desolder it first.
This guy is a savage
