Picture of Wireless Power Charger!
Wirelessly power your iDevices!

Wow, I'm really surprised at how many views this is getting! Thank you everyone for reading!

I recently made a boost converter (for those unfamiliar with them, they effectively boost the voltage up to a useable amount) to make a USB Ipod charger using 2 AA batteries.

Now that that was done and over, tested tried and true, I decided I wanted to make something a little more snazzy!



Behold, the wireless ipod charger!

Uses all 12 volts of 6 (2 in parallel for each cell) lithium batteries!

Draws under 3 amps all the time!

Perfect for kids parties!

Now in 5 new flavors!

I've searched around on this website, and noticed that almost all of the instructables on here with wireless power seem to lack a proper explanation about how to build one; Or, when they did build one, they used an inefficient method of doing so...

This transmitter works fantastic, and can run on pretty much any voltage above 12 volts, and below 24! It's also extremely efficient (little power lost) and, it generates almost no interference. (one wireless power instructable used a square wave in the primary; Square waves have a lot of harmonics, and can cause havoc on computer systems, radios, and other sensitive electronics)

I've come to solve all of these problems!

ajha9 made it!8 months ago

hey thanks I MADE IT and won prize also ,I am still working on improving efficiency and range. HEARTLY THANKS TO INSTRUCTABLE.


bro, may i know how did u check whether your transmitter working??

Can u please tell me which type and the gauge no of wire u have used

Congrats to this success! :)

Please let us know what you changed in your optimising and what the performance-change was.

Hey this is a great Ible! But I cannot read this section. BTW these are the Resistors in the sender schematic.
You gotta click on the little [i] and then the link to the original image link:


It's 18k and 18k on the top side, and 12k and 12k on the bottom side ;-)

why do we require such a high frequency of operation? and what is the diameter of the turns of primary and secondary transmitter?

how will the mosfets get triggered?and what is the operating frequency?and y do we need a high frequency of operation?

i made it and its working.....i got 9v without using the 7805...i just wish i can increase the range of transmission

Can you explain making coil?
I cannot do this.
Please Can you tell me Radius and Turn of coil.'?
Thanks you

Hi, can u help me to troubleshoot my circuit.

ok whats the issue

Hi, my circuit is not working, i have used 2.2uf capacitor mkp similar type. I dont have cro to troubleshoot.

does not it generate emp that harmful to electronics

I dont know why but i cant get it to work. the first Mosfet gets just hot and I dont even get anything to the master coils : /

Hello bro..how did u overcome this problem u faced??

Hello! :) I wanted to ask(I am new to coils) if the 3+3 turn coil is like 6 turns but in the middle a stripped bit, or a 3 turn coil with a stripped bit in the middle? (as it is a bit unclear in the pictures.. perhaps you can even add this to the coil step :D ) Thanks in advance :D

I was very happy to uncover this site. I wanted to thank you for your time just for this fantastic read!!

I definitely enjoyed every little bit of it and I have you saved as a favorite to

see new stuff in your site. <a href=http://softwarespin.com/> hashmi. . . . . . .</a>

does the transmitter have AC to DC converter and DC to AC inverter? what are the uses for MOSFET and ZENER diode? why use ZENER diode instead of ultrafast diode?

can i buy the kit ??? can anybody please tell me its price please

xander005 made it!3 months ago

Hey Guys, I made it! I finally made it, thank you for your information and all the help, i used this for my college project!!

Where is the ferrite toroid in this schematic? Also, where does the second ultra-fast diode go? It's not in the schematic. Lastly, do we need the filter cap or is it not really necessary?

Hello can you give me the steps of the circuit and the value of the components thanks

can you please give me the steps to make this , I'm lost
Hey, whats the range you achieved? Cause my circuit works but the efficiency drops extremely fast to 0% at a distance of 4 inches or so. Do you know what I could have done wrong?

One drawback to wireless chargers is that they don't achieve great distances. I'm not sure what the maximum distance is for this project, but 4 inches sounds about right.

Great project!Thumbs Up! :)

I have just made this circuit and I ran into a problem.When I connected the circuit to the power supply the wires melted. Any ideea on why that happend?

how can in simulate the circuit of transmitter and receiving circuit

AlexanderH38 months ago

about how much does this cost to make total?

Greatlightt9 months ago

a vital information is missing from this project...WHAT IS THE INDUCTANCE VALUE OF THE 3 X 3 CENTER TAP COIL....

you said the coil oscillates at 50khz

Hey,can this charger will work for other phone

I think you can always replace the usb cable? since USB generally tend to be 5V I dont see any reason why you should not be able to?

in which node have to check the square wave output at transmitter.
