As the post reads, the components which you would need to try this trick are:

  • Palm Touchstone
  • Palm Touchstone Case
  • Heat Shrink
  • Electrical Tape
  • Thin Multicore Wire

The procedure goes on something like this.You are supposed to attach the induction coil from the Touchstone case to the inside of Galaxy Note 2’s back cover. Reattach the battery cover and place your device on the charging dock. If you have followed the steps carefully, your Note 2 should be charging wirelessly. A step-to-step guide is available here.
