    Dieter was totally bragging about the Touchstone mod he did on his Galaxy Nexus on this weeks Verge mobile podcast. It's pretty cool, solderless.

    For curious minds

    I just saw this thread. Pretty cool! I wonder when inductive charging will actually come built in to other devices? I mean, int he webOS world, it's so 17 seconds ago...which is cool to have something related to webOS that is NOT in the coming months!

    I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!

    I noticed that many use the copper conductive tape to route the coil to the back of the phone. I am having a hard time finding this locally, and prefer not to pay $20 for 36yds of this stuff if I only need 6". Does anyone know if the same could be done with a industrial strength (i mean really heavy duty) aluminum foil instead...that I have on hand from another project i was doing.

    Is there any side effects, reasons, resistance/conductive differences that stick out? I know copper is better and conducting electricity, but for the 5V and less than 1A we need for this, do that really matter?

    Nokia (red phone) --> Denso TouchPoint TP2200 --> Samsung SPH-N400 --> (Palm VII) --> Sanyo 5150 --> Palm Treo 650 --> Palm Pre --> Sprint FrankenPre 2 --> (HP TouchPad)/(HP Pre 3 - Wifi) --> Galaxy Nexus (with TS mod and hopes of Open webOS!)

    Depending, heat could be an issue. It is annoying that there isn't an easy way to get "just enough."

    Not to resurrect a thread, but I wanted to mention something regarding the copper tape.

    Having done this mod, the best place to get "just enough" copper tape is a guitar shop.

    They use this kind of tape to shield amps etc. Call a few local guitar shops and ask nicely, they'll toss you a foot of tape for free. Just tell them you're doing a project that needs a LITTLE bit of copper adhesive tape and you can't find it -anywhere- without buying 20 feet of the stuff. They'll have mercy. Seeing as you'll probably need 5-10 guitar picks anyway to get the back off the nexus, it's a perfect solution - let em know you're coming in for some picks too .
