A battered Alpatronix iPhone XS Max wireless charging case emerged from the ground cover at the end of the driveway:
The iPhone was nowhere to be found, so harvesting its organs seemed appropriate:
I assume the four steel disks aligned the coil with the wireless charger.
A few hours of steady tension relieved enough of the sticky tape to release the battery:
Although its bag now sports a few wrinkles:
The alert reader will note the outside of case proudly proclaimed “Capacity: 5000 mAh” while the underside of the battery says “4920 mAh”, but that’s surely close enough for consumer electronics these days.
The battery charges through either the Qi coil or a (mercifully standard Micro-B) USB jack and everything seems to work.
Not sure what I’ll do with a bare lithium cell and its charger, but they ought to come in handy for something around here.
