HTC EVO 4G Inductive Charging Mod Built with Palm Touchstone

Someone has managed to modify a Palm Touchstone wireless charger and Palm Pre back plate and make the necessary parts inside function in the HTC EVO 4G. The system allows the EVO 4G to charge by just resting the phone on the Touchstone charger.

The system was made by purchasing the necessary parts from Amazon. This includes the Palm Touchstone kit and back cover for $46. With a bit of hacking done on the back cover for the Pre the necessary parts were removed and put inside the EVO 4G and connected up in a way that allows it to charge wirelessly.

A Q&A with the guy responsible for hacking up the Touchstone and getting it to work on the EVO 4G can be found at Good and Evo.
