You can put the Qi transmitter in lots of things! Make an acrylic charging stand, put it in a cork trivet, or, like we're going to do, stash it in a hardcover book.

Make sure it's a book you don't want to read, as you'll be cutting it up!

Open the front cover and place the transmitter on the first page. Trace around the outline and set the transmitter aside.

Use your favorite metal ruler and a utility or craft knife to cut through many layers of book pages along the outline. Watch your fingers!

The coil should be as close to the cover as possible, but you might want to make the spot for the circuit a bit deeper so the USB connector is completely submerged in pages.


Don't forget to cut a channel for the USB cable!

Make sure the book can close fully, and plug in the USB cable to verify the phone will charge when placed on top.

Next place the phone on the book while its closed, lining up the coils so it's charging. Then trace around the phone with a pen or pencil so you'll know where to put it when you want it to charge!

That's it! Go out there an enjoy your charger!
