Can iPhone 4S be charged wirelessly? Yes! An ambitious tinkerer has found a hardware modification that will allow iPhone 4S charge over the air. The idea of wireless charging devices was first shown successfully by a team at MIT in 2007. There were a few commercial devices based on the technology over the last few years. But, the technology has not gained much popularity. It is still the enthusiasts who practice the trade. And, now an enthusiast brings another tweak to make your iPhone 4S charge wirelessly.


A Hardware Mod Allows iPhone 4S To Support Wireless Charging, Image Credit : Screenshot From Video

A team from MIT’s Department of Physics, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (ISN) had dream to create such device or technology that could transfer power to cell phones, household robots, mp3 players, laptop computers and other portable electronic devices without being connected to any power wire. Tanveer Islam who is from Essex, England ans is a doctor by profession could be inspired from that team. He is the guy who is behind this creative hack. This hack has been applied to the Nokia 800 before. Tanveer successfully applied the same technique to the iPhone 4S. He uploaded a video on YouTube and explained how to modify your iPhone that will gain the power to charge itself without being connected with power cable.

Before you begin, the mod requires a prebuilt wireless charger such as the Powermat, basic soldering skills, a spare charger port assembly, a thin wire gauge, and an iPhone 4S.

The process involves soldering wires from the charging port to specific pins on the spare charger port assembly. Then the wires are connected to the USB points on the wireless receiver. The wireless charging circuit apparently adds an extra millimeter of thickness to your iPhone (according to the video). After that, you’ll have to remove a metal plate from the back glass of the 4S original cover. Remember, just like Nokia Lumia 800, this will also void your warranty.

As soon as you reattach the cover of your iPhone, you’re all set. Now, you can charge your iPhone 4S without being connected with any charger or wire. See the tutorial video below.

Try it at your own risk. Your phone may got damaged during the process.
