1
00:00:02,389 –> 00:00:07,680
okay so today we’re going to look at a

2
00:00:04,470 –> 00:00:10,110
very simple non hack that you can do

3
00:00:07,680 –> 00:00:14,340
more of more of a pro tip that you can

4
00:00:10,110 –> 00:00:17,940
do to turn a non wirelessly charging

5
00:00:14,340 –> 00:00:19,560
phone into a Qi compliant wireless

6
00:00:17,940 –> 00:00:22,289
charging phone that you can use with

7
00:00:19,560 –> 00:00:26,310
pretty much anything available market

8
00:00:22,289 –> 00:00:31,289
now I have tried this already with a

9
00:00:26,310 –> 00:00:34,980
piece of trash deal right there and of

10
00:00:31,289 –> 00:00:38,430
course it wasn’t she complained so do

11
00:00:34,980 –> 00:00:40,950
not recommend what you should do you

12
00:00:38,430 –> 00:00:44,910
should do the smart way and grab

13
00:00:40,950 –> 00:00:46,140
yourself a party grab this the case in

14
00:00:44,910 –> 00:00:49,050
the case of patriotism

15
00:00:46,140 –> 00:00:52,079
so I got the helmet on case here and you

16
00:00:49,050 –> 00:00:54,870
can see overview of that I’ll put a link

17
00:00:52,079 –> 00:00:57,180
somewhere as you can see the view of the

18
00:00:54,870 –> 00:01:00,270
case it’s a good little case that with

19
00:00:57,180 –> 00:01:04,100
no cream for a protective mouthpiece

20
00:01:00,270 –> 00:01:04,100
fishing form and then sort of a harder

21
00:01:05,810 –> 00:01:10,660
hair

22
00:01:07,560 –> 00:01:13,220
so the Carter classic partnership

23
00:01:10,660 –> 00:01:16,370
it’s nice because it steps look it

24
00:01:13,220 –> 00:01:19,700
allows the phones except last slide

25
00:01:16,370 –> 00:01:23,540
expenses which going to be imperative if

26
00:01:19,700 –> 00:01:25,190
we’re going to get a good connection and

27
00:01:23,540 –> 00:01:27,920
then I got this wireless charger on

28
00:01:25,190 –> 00:01:30,110
Amazon for in a couple bucks it’s not a

29
00:01:27,920 –> 00:01:32,870
big deal decreasing all over the place

30
00:01:30,110 –> 00:01:38,210
make sure you get one that she compliant

31
00:01:32,870 –> 00:01:44,990
as most of them are the long time most

32
00:01:38,210 –> 00:01:48,710
of them so I think this is a super

33
00:01:44,990 –> 00:01:50,540
simple not not even a real hack so we’ve

34
00:01:48,710 –> 00:01:54,470
got our little charging pad as you see

35
00:01:50,540 –> 00:01:57,320
it’s got the key icon air so you do know

36
00:01:54,470 –> 00:01:59,710
that it is Qi compliant or at least we

37
00:01:57,320 –> 00:02:01,790
hope that is Qi compliant you know but

38
00:01:59,710 –> 00:02:05,960
all we got to do is just plug this

39
00:02:01,790 –> 00:02:07,820
little guy here into BA and I’m going to

40
00:02:05,960 –> 00:02:09,950
actually put it I’m actually going to

41
00:02:07,820 –> 00:02:11,150
put the charger down here towards the

42
00:02:09,950 –> 00:02:13,430
bottom not actually going to Center it

43
00:02:11,150 –> 00:02:15,380
up on the phone on this particular model

44
00:02:13,430 –> 00:02:18,140
simply because you’re going to create

45
00:02:15,380 –> 00:02:21,350
there’s a little bit of thickness here

46
00:02:18,140 –> 00:02:24,049
with there’s a little circuit board in

47
00:02:21,350 –> 00:02:25,250
here and of course the antenna that adds

48
00:02:24,049 –> 00:02:27,350
a little bit of thickness so I’m going

49
00:02:25,250 –> 00:02:30,560
to stick it down here where the phone

50
00:02:27,350 –> 00:02:32,840
curves in just so it doesn’t create the

51
00:02:30,560 –> 00:02:34,370
bulge on the back of the phone that

52
00:02:32,840 –> 00:02:36,530
would allow that would make the phone

53
00:02:34,370 –> 00:02:40,970
sit and rock and do all the annoying

54
00:02:36,530 –> 00:02:44,180
things anyway so then so all we’re going

55
00:02:40,970 –> 00:02:48,580
to do is just place that there they’re

56
00:02:44,180 –> 00:02:48,580
going to that

57
00:02:49,140 –> 00:02:54,880
[Music]

58
00:02:50,790 –> 00:03:02,460
over them play nice and or Center down

59
00:02:54,880 –> 00:03:09,300
there on top slide enter squishy parked

60
00:03:02,460 –> 00:03:13,060
over that have an enforce lift the

61
00:03:09,300 –> 00:03:16,330
harder outer shot onto a mic back now we

62
00:03:13,060 –> 00:03:21,160
have a Moto X pure a little extra beep –

63
00:03:16,330 –> 00:03:24,550
that looks perhaps to it but it is it is

64
00:03:21,160 –> 00:03:27,190
flat on the back that’s nice it’s kind

65
00:03:24,550 –> 00:03:30,490
of nice weight – I like I like kind of

66
00:03:27,190 –> 00:03:33,100
this bp4 debuff that’s throwback to the

67
00:03:30,490 –> 00:03:36,730
old track very like – mom you know

68
00:03:33,100 –> 00:03:39,520
pulling up inside your head Zack Morris

69
00:03:36,730 –> 00:03:43,060
phone anyway so I liked a little bit of

70
00:03:39,520 –> 00:03:44,950
weight there it adds a substantial bit

71
00:03:43,060 –> 00:03:46,120
there and when I’m when I’m traveling

72
00:03:44,950 –> 00:03:48,010
when I’ve got this gun mounted it

73
00:03:46,120 –> 00:03:50,540
doesn’t shake quite so much just get a

74
00:03:48,010 –> 00:03:52,849
little more inertia to

75
00:03:50,540 –> 00:03:54,890
so that’s that and it really that is

76
00:03:52,849 –> 00:03:56,540
that is all there is to it is very

77
00:03:54,890 –> 00:03:59,780
simple hack I’ll throw it on the charger

78
00:03:56,540 –> 00:04:03,230
here so you can see what happens so here

79
00:03:59,780 –> 00:04:05,209
we have a G compliant charger that I

80
00:04:03,230 –> 00:04:07,909
picked up at IKEA me has this section

81
00:04:05,209 –> 00:04:11,900
from ten bucks on the way over there I

82
00:04:07,909 –> 00:04:14,959
don’t really care but it works we got to

83
00:04:11,900 –> 00:04:18,650
do is just stick that on there and as

84
00:04:14,959 –> 00:04:21,680
you see it’s now charging I mean that’s

85
00:04:18,650 –> 00:04:23,270
really all you got to do so if you liked

86
00:04:21,680 –> 00:04:26,120

87
00:04:23,270 –> 00:04:27,680

18
00:00:55,970 –> 00:01:05,880
[Music]

19
00:00:57,840 –> 00:01:05,880
clock radio units we have two adapters

20
00:01:05,970 –> 00:01:27,820
AC adapter patient there this is light

21
00:01:18,310 –> 00:01:34,350
adapter the adapter it Saturday the

22
00:01:27,820 –> 00:01:42,700
adapter 110 120 240 240 in Portland –

23
00:01:34,350 –> 00:01:47,940
what – amp to 5 volt pan 6 and center

24
00:01:42,700 –> 00:01:47,940
positive barrel adapter 3 standard stuff

25
00:01:48,600 –> 00:01:58,960
there’s your battery port for two

26
00:01:51,520 –> 00:02:04,420
doublea’s charging pad oats it cut some

27
00:01:58,960 –> 00:02:06,700
nice kind of a rubbery substance here

28
00:02:04,420 –> 00:02:11,170
just to hold your stuff in place little

29
00:02:06,700 –> 00:02:13,660
grippy see I low and off for your alarm

30
00:02:11,170 –> 00:02:17,190
time that alarm stuff squeeze your

31
00:02:13,660 –> 00:02:19,530
dimmer minute

32
00:02:17,190 –> 00:02:21,210
and that’s pretty much all there is to

33
00:02:19,530 –> 00:02:22,500
it there’s no radio function or anything

34
00:02:21,210 –> 00:02:24,450
like that

35
00:02:22,500 –> 00:02:25,860
not that we need that on this model this

36
00:02:24,450 –> 00:02:30,810
is just something that we’re going to

37
00:02:25,860 –> 00:02:34,350
use to charge charge phone and cell time

38
00:02:30,810 –> 00:02:39,420
with we got to plug down you can see

39
00:02:34,350 –> 00:02:42,690
this is pretty bright see if it would

40
00:02:39,420 –> 00:02:46,590
affect the general settings so the

41
00:02:42,690 –> 00:02:53,940
lowest one should be okay for for

42
00:02:46,590 –> 00:03:01,260
nighttime use set the alarm for highest

43
00:02:53,940 –> 00:03:10,950
setting here goes off moving

44
00:03:01,260 –> 00:03:10,950
[Music]

45
00:03:14,470 –> 00:03:23,850
[Music]

46
00:03:20,090 –> 00:03:27,630
love it uh we’ll hook up the phone and

47
00:03:23,850 –> 00:03:28,830
see how it does with charging so what

48
00:03:27,630 –> 00:03:31,890
we’re going to do so we’re just gonna

49
00:03:28,830 –> 00:03:39,750
fit this right off in the back the phone

50
00:03:31,890 –> 00:03:44,570
here look it yeah right there your

51
00:03:39,750 –> 00:03:44,570
father she is fits them nice and snugly

52
00:03:44,660 –> 00:04:00,750
popper into case

53
00:03:48,440 –> 00:04:03,090
sure charging it’s charging there this

54
00:04:00,750 –> 00:04:06,210
is a yeah this is kind of ridiculous

55
00:04:03,090 –> 00:04:12,150
hear how this caught plug them sent

56
00:04:06,210 –> 00:04:19,200
Sunday now Friday and it has game looks

57
00:04:12,150 –> 00:04:21,600
like 11 minutes or so yeah so it’s on

58
00:04:19,200 –> 00:04:24,800
I’m a three minute the day to to in

59
00:04:21,600 –> 00:04:26,040
changes day over five day that’s

60
00:04:24,800 –> 00:04:29,850
ridiculous

61
00:04:26,040 –> 00:04:31,980
bad timing in this plan so if you want

62
00:04:29,850 –> 00:04:35,190
an accurate clock this is not going to

63
00:04:31,980 –> 00:04:36,990
be the one as I was afraid of this was

64
00:04:35,190 –> 00:04:39,030
sort of something that was handed in the

65
00:04:36,990 –> 00:04:42,300
back of my mind the whole time I was

66
00:04:39,030 –> 00:04:46,190
playing with this nowhere on the box

67
00:04:42,300 –> 00:04:48,000
does it say that it is Qi compliant and

68
00:04:46,190 –> 00:04:50,880
that’s the problem

69
00:04:48,000 –> 00:04:52,860
now of course it says

70
00:04:50,880 –> 00:04:54,930
the other you know compatible with

71
00:04:52,860 –> 00:04:56,370
wireless charging in a smartphone other

72
00:04:54,930 –> 00:05:01,100
smartphones like an iphone blah blah

73
00:04:56,370 –> 00:05:03,960
blah maybe adaptors to work with this

74
00:05:01,100 –> 00:05:08,520
unfortunately these adapters are also

75
00:05:03,960 –> 00:05:13,770
not Chi compliant thus they do not work

76
00:05:08,520 –> 00:05:16,200
on any qi chargers they only work on

77
00:05:13,770 –> 00:05:18,380
this charger this particular charger

78
00:05:16,200 –> 00:05:23,250
which pretty much makes them useless

79
00:05:18,380 –> 00:05:25,860
that’s a deal breaker right there so sxe

80
00:05:23,250 –> 00:05:29,730
wireless charging digital alarm clock

81
00:05:25,860 –> 00:05:32,840
stay away from it don’t buy this do not

82
00:05:29,730 –> 00:05:37,710
waste your money on this piece of trash

83
00:05:32,840 –> 00:05:42,830
get yourself a real qi adapter and a

84
00:05:37,710 –> 00:05:42,830
real key compatible charger

85
00:05:43,720 –> 00:05:51,759
