$10 wireless phone charger

My Nexus 5 came with wireless charging built in but the chargers are expensive. A trip to eBay scored a circuit board ready to go which charges the phone, but it's a bare board.  I designed a printed case that encloses the board nicely.

The board has red and blue charging lights, but I find them way too bright and they're kind of pointless since the phone will tell you if it's charging, so I didn't bother making a way for them to shine outside the case.

The board design is up at youmagine : https://www.youmagine.com/designs/10-wireless-phone-charger
