I notice the pogo pins appear a few mm's shorter on the pro than the original pinephone. Could they not be reaching the back cover and not making a connection?

Good point. I cannot make pins longer but I can move "back cover" closer. I have put soft isolation tape between back cover and tape with connectors. Now pins are reaching it and wireless charging is working. however charging speed is poor. I will have to play with this hack more.

If that works then what pine64 has told me that the cpu draws to much power and the Qi charger cant supply is not correct. This seems like it could be fixed with a small adapter plate maybe I will start working on something as well. Keep me posted on what you come up with.

Interesting find; I managed to get the charger to no longer flash (but light constantly) by putting a few layers of "duct tape" between the pin holder and the back of the case. I'll have to investigate whether charging actually "works" now though.
