Haha, literally a couple of Touchstones. Are the coils from Pre backplates? Have you tried with the TouchPad Touchstone?

Yes, the coils are from Pre/Pre+/Pre2 backplates.

The TouchPad touchstone won't work - see https://plus.google.com/101739011161...ts/7VnRoFm9cT5 for details.

I thought you used 2 coils for more input. But your touchpad touchstone / phone touchstone hybrid mod uses only one stone. Do you need two of those kinds to charge the nexus seven or are the two coils just for orientation options while charging?
Anyway, nicely done.
