Nexus 5X Teardown Disassembly + Qi Wireless Charging Mod + 3000mah Battery Mod

***Update 2016-Jan-28 - A few customers asked about the 3000mah battery mod. We finally made some time and got it working. See updated pics below.**

For those looking to have us do the qi wireless mod, go here: [Nexus 5x Mod Service](

We just did a quick teardown of the Google Nexus 5X after only receiving it a few hours. The phone definitely does feel very similar to the Nexus 5 having that it was also created by LG. The cover on this thing was pretty easy to take apart by gliding a plastic pick along the edges of the screen. Once that's out everything else seems pretty straight forward in taking about. No worries of hidden wires!

I was quite shocked to find out the Nexus 5X didn't come with Qi Wireless charging when every other nexus device had it previously. Luckily I had a few qi wireless pad receivers lying around and decided to MacGyver it to have it charge. Overall it works, but the charging is obviously slow. Its only been a day since I got it working and haven't fully tested out this wireless charging on different chargers yet. It's definitely something you can't do at home unless you have a microscope and super thin soldering iron. If there is enough interest in this mod I'll consider offering it as modding service. But as for now, consider it as an experimental R&D.
