In the past few weeks we received delightful feedbacks from the winners of the Monthly Giveaway. And more importantly- their projects are awesome. Let’s check them out!
Let’s start with Kevin’s Li Ion USB charger, “It’s 2013. WHY does everything have to be plugged in all the time!? “ Can’t agree more! He wrote a brief introduction of the product after receiving the Wireless Charging Module and then started working on the charger. Here is how the PCB looks like.

And there seems to be little more design problem unsolved before this is made open source. You may keep an eye on Kev’s blog to ensure that you won’t miss any update.
Shea Silverman had a slight little trouble with the voltage when getting his Baked Raspberry Pi setup. He managed to wirelessly power the Pi with his colleague. The following video illustrates their work (and their enthusiasm for Nyan Cat :D).
You can find more details+ the source code through dropping by Shea’s blog.
Last but not the least, we heard from Hendrik about his Kid’s night light recharging project. Apparently the wireless charging module is exactly what he had been looking for to finish the work. Moreover, he made this detailed review on its performance.
Thanks again for the brilliant work! And our next Monthly Giveaway is launching soon!
