How to add wireless charging to your Note 3

Monday 7th October 2013 by William Judd in Android, Mobile Accessories.

It’s getting easier and easier to charge your Qi-enabled smartphone, but most manufacturers aren’t including the technology in their phones. To combat this, we’ve started a range of Qi internal wireless charging adapters. These slim accessories let you use wireless chargers, without requiring you to change your back cover or use a case. Today, we’re unveiling our Qi Internal Wireless Charging Adapter for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

This is the easiest way to add wireless charging to your Galaxy Note 3. 

All you need to do is remove the back cover of your Note 3, then attach the adapter to the metallic prongs you’ll find next to the battery. The coils of the Qi adapter will sit between the battery and the rear cover, meaning your Note 3 will stay as thin as ever.

Once the Qi adapter is installed, you can use your Note 3 with any number of Qi-compatible wireless chargers. I’d recommend the stylish Qi Wireless Charging Orb (which comes in a number of colours!), or the Qi Universal Charging Plate if you’re on a stricter budget.

There is one downside to this internal Qi adapter, though. The positioning of the adapter interferes with the NFC adapter that’s on the battery, meaning that NFC may not work consistently or at all. Still, considering I’ve used NFC precisely once with my Galaxy S4 in five months (to pair it with my smartwatch), that’s not much of a loss.

    These instructions are WRONG.
    The contacts above the battery are for NFC only, they match up to the contacts in the Samsung S view wireless charging cover and/or the Samsung wireless charging back.
    The contacts to use are the top 2 of the ones on the left side of the battery.
