If you're a Lumia 800 owner who also happens to have a Touchstone wireless charging dock laying around, you might just want to check out this mod. DIYer Oli Gill has managed to get the two to play nicely with one another, though the process of adding wireless charging to your Windows Phone is rather complex — Gill himself admits that it took around 12 hours just to figure out how everything will work. You'll need to feel quite comfortable with taking apart the phone and charger, and the process even involves removing some of the metal from the phone's case to prevent interference with charger's coil. Unfortunately, there aren't any detailed instructions on how to complete the mod, but if you're feeling brave you can consult the video below before trying it yourself.
