Nokia Lumia 920 wireless car charger mod (video)

While the Nokia Lumia 920 charging plate and stand is cool, what many people really want is a wireless car charger, and in the absence of an official accessory many are tempted to roll their own.

In the above video we have a standard Nokia charging plate glued to a Arkon Garmin vent mount and connected to a cigarette lighter fuse socket.

The phone is held to the charger using neodymium magnets taped to a case and the charging plate.

The solution is relatively neat, but not for the first time I wished the Nokia Lumia 920 had the same type of magnet system as the Palm TouchStone.

I myself have converted the box my wireless charging plate came in into a small bed for my phone which stops it from getting pushed off the couch onto the floor all the time, with some double-sided tape keeping the box in place.

Ultimately Nokia could generate a good revenue stream by selling us more wireless charging accessories, but until then I think a lot of home-baked solutions will be created.
