    With Apple owning exclusive rights to the MagSafe power connector, it's amazing how they have not decided to place the connector on their iPhones so I decided to create my own mod that uses it!

    I have a Galaxy Note II, ZeroLemon 9,300 mAh battery and ZeroLemon rugged case. I decided to mod a spare MagSafe power connector into the case and wire it to the wireless charging port in the back of the phone.

    I 3d printed an ABS faceplate for the charging port using an UP Plus 2 3d printer.

    I've also uploaded the .stl file of the MagSafe faceplate to thingiverse below:

    This mod does not void the warrranty on my phone.

    I removed the back magnet and only used the four corner magnets. I superglued the magnets to the connector.

    While waiting for the superglue to dry, I took the MagSafe power adapter cord and soldered it to a 5v USB charger.

    Wiring time.
    For connector 1-2-3-4-5
    I wired 1 and 5 to ground, then 2 and 4 to power.

    The completed project. As always it charges the phone bi-directional.
