    I'm curious if the circuitry is there so that it's not constantly drawing 10W each.

    So if I’m seeing this right you have a sheet covering 2 DIY 3 coils. I think it’s pretty cool. I personally think this power source combined with a 3D print would be gold.

    Yeah, the underside of the green boards for those coils hosts a full array of control chips. As far as I know, no Qi charger is just always on.
