Qi is a great protocol for devices with larger batteries/that consume watts of power. It reduces wasted power by no longer transmitting when the device is fully charged, this is great for say, phones that take a while to charge and you may forget about. But for an implant with a tiny power source that charges at a rate of…
Depends on what you're trying to do, but the pads of the NFC chip worked out well for me. If you want to solder to another part of the coil, you'll need to scrape off some of the enamel coating from the wire.
Hey @Cassox, would you have any problems with me running with the idea of the glow in the dark implant charged with imbedded LEDs? I'm not trying to steal anyone's ideas, just think it's a great concept that I'd like to explore.
Quick update. I tore open one of those NFC key-fobs, used a bit of acetone to persuade the coil out, and soldered an LED directly onto the pads of the NFC chip. The chip adds some extra functionality and I left it in the circuit because it converts the AC to DC, meaning that the LED won't blink like the nail lights you're…
Something like this might work out a bit better. The LED could be placed on the bottom or side depending on which orientation charges the pigment the best.
Those look great! How's the range on the RFID LEDs? Would the implant need to be placed with the tag side against skin?
I wouldn't mind helping test one of these new magnet designs. Although I'd like to find a few alternative implant locations first. I rock climb frequently and while I haven't had any problems with the xNT in webbing between my index and thumb, I would like to avoid implants in my hands. The forearm seems easy enough to get…
