Getting creative with your Nokia Wireless Charger and a pile of Legos

Every now and again we run across a discussion over in the Windows Phone Central Forums that reminds us how creative our readers can be. WPCentral member TheKinkajou has created a stand for the Nokia Qi Wireless charger out of Legos.

It is the latest of such creations that we have seen over the past year or so in the forums and appears to fit the bill rather nicely.

The core of the stand is your standard Nokia DT-900 charger and while there is more than one way to build such a stand, TheKinkajou is working on getting parts list together for all the Lego pieces used. 

If you have younger kids who dabble with Lego construction or are a Lego aficionado yourself, building a stand should be a more economical option to consider than picking up the Nokia Wireless Charging Stand (DT-910).

Have you discovered a creative way to prop up your Nokia Wireless Charger? If you have or just curious about the Lego builds, head on over to this WPCentral Forums discussion and share your thoughts.

Thanks, Kyle, for the tip!

  • I wonder if he Kragl'ed it....
  • lol
  • Lol
  • Well played.
  • Loved that movie.
  • +920 Everything is awesomeeeeeeeee
  • He used The Piece Of Requirement!
  • That the very first instant looked like a 900 till I saw the WP8 logo
  • The 900 also has metallic buttons on the side. That's something I actually liked in the design...and Zune of course
  • *LEGO. Yeah, I'm one of those guys.
  • LOL. Or is it "lol"?
  • I'm with you... "Legos" is an abomination.
  • +1 the plural of Lego is Lego... uppercase or not doesn't bother me
  • Not to be confused with "Lehgo!"
  • Too much cool here !!
  • It's just Lego - even in plural ;-)
  • But proper in all caps.
  • +1
  • OK.  I'm building one of these when I get home. Genius!
  • Yup, I saw this on the forums, and was amazed by it! :D
  • I still wonder why they don't sell custom kits at the store that could be made real quick and are stylish!
  • Slow news day..?..
  • I wonder if the writers of these articles ever get tired if this comment.....@George_Ponder
  • I wonder that when I see a "Someone in our forums said" news story, but its nice to have more articles to read during the day. Its like a highlight of the day thing.
  • At least its not about android
  • Niice, shame I longer have my K'nex sets lol... gave them away to my nephews and neices.
  • Would love to see a build sheet for this, I have (my son has) lots of Lego, but I can guarantee that if I try it will not come out as good. LOL
  • I cut mine from left over polystyrene from packaging. :)
  • I built one last year, here it is
  • Nice work. It immediately made me think of the end of Star Wars episode III. I picture your Lumia waking up every morning, checking for an elusive update from AT&T.  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
  • lol funny thing is, I used pieces from my lego star wars tie fighter to make it.
  • Since we're talking wireless charging....
    Somebody please recommend accessories (charger, case etc) for my New 925 coming early next week.
  • The Nokia Qi adapter for the phone (Capt. Obvious here) and the DT-900 are what I use and they work perfectly. I've read that the Nokia car stand Qi adapter is crap (they don't even list it on their website anymore) but I've never used it so can't confirm. I'm looking into some third-party Qi car chargers  so hope to have a review in the near future.
  • Ok, Thanks
  • The JBL power up speaker has blutooth and NFC/wirless charging, available from
  • Younger kids tsss.. I'll buy me some Lego to build this, doesn't matter how old I am :D!
  • Everything is awesome !! 
  • Going retro with that Lumia 800.
  • You're kidding right? 800 doesn't have Qi charging..
  • I made mine out of two acrylic stands and some handyman leftovers -- duct tape, rubber pads, a cable clip, and a pair of L-brackets (for a weighted base).
  • I thought about doing that, but didn't like the idea of the wire coming out the top. I bought the Tylt and am happy with it.
  • :D Everything is awesome!!! :)
  •!8914&authkey=!AEPIKdrORsk9f1A&v=3&ithint=photo,.jpg My binder clip charging stand.
  • Just horrible..
  • Interesting, not the best looking thing but, if it works....
  • The plural of LEGO is LEGO! Not Legos.
  • THIS. Many times over. Lego is like grass and sand - it's an entity comprising of many parts yet its plural stays the same. Damn Yanks, bastardising language.
  • grasses and sands are also words though normally used when referring to different types of. Back in the day, I remember the company Lego wanting to refer to their toys as Lego bricks or Lego toys, not Lego's. They didn't want to be like Kleenex (brand) tissues. Whatever. Just be glad you're popular and don't try to nickname yourself or get mad at others for what they call you or your products if it's not meant to be derogatory.
  • The plural of Moose is Meese.
  • Well... "grasses" and "sands" are correct i.e. desert sands, many grasses. "Lego" is more like saying "sheep" i.e. Legos and Sheeps are both incorrect
    I've literally spent hours on there. ;-)  
  • Death toys is what they are.
  • I've built it into the table next to my bed, LED light included:
  • Are there instructions or build list for this?
  • this is boring and uncreative I only had this box of legos: and used it to make this:
  • I like it :)
  • Any plan? I could use my brother-in-law's buckets and make one right now. Love my 900 be a 910 right now...
  • I've made a stand with some old tape cassette cases and cut a hole in one case to fit the charger and the cable runs through underneath. Works great, looks like a load of plastic and glue with a phone on top.
  • Lego is already plural
  • Omg if you hadn't have said that I would have missed where 100 other people have said it before you...
  • I built one of these over a year ago, I use it every single day on my desk at work!
  • I made a Lego wireless charging stand last year, there's a thread we made about it for those interested.
  • I made a LEGO charging stand for my 920 about a week after it was launched. Includes 3-sided enclosure to make sure the 920 is properly positioned with access to the power button, 4-position angled stand with spring-loaded shock absorbers, cable conduit with strain relief. Perfect for charging the 920 or to use it while it charges.
  • For the sake of those of us with grammatical OCD, please singularise "Legos". Here it is from the horses mouth. :)
  • What does it say? for those of us who haven't stooped to twitter.
  • It was the official Lego twitter account saying: LEGO is an abbreviation of the Danish words "leg godt", meaning "play well". b/c its our brand name it shouldnt be pluralized :)
  • Speaking of that DT-900 charger: does anyone know where to get the cable for it? I lost the cable in a freak accident.
  • I made one for my phone as well, a little rough  
  • I really need something to keep my 1520 stable on the wireless charger lol
  • Love this Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • I gota get a 3-D printer...this could be fun !
  • Here's my build.  The kid wouldn't let me break any sets, so I had to use spare parts.  I tried to keep it black/yellow because yellow would be the phone I got if I had to replace the black 1020. -
  • Here's mine. My wife loves it!!16419&authkey=!AO...
