Anyone using Wireless Charging with G3?

What charging is working or not working for ya. I got my sticker and installed it inside the back cover. I bought 4 cheap circle wireless chargers on Ebay. Turns out I got knock off ones. I was getting the slow charger screen but the last few times I didn't. It's just the one coil charger which are more picky then the 3 coil ones. How much should it be charging? Not sure if I want to keep messing with or return it. I was just trying to save a buck since I wanted 4 of them

The mA probably needs to be green all the time which it isn't. It just charges and stops. A guy said he got his charger to work with his note 3 charger that is 2a. Probably a waste of time posting here since this place is dead. LoL. I figure as soon as I return these wireless chargers someone will find a fix.

We (Sprint) originally decided that we were not going to carry any Qi or PMA compatible charging cases or accessories for the LG G3. Not in stores and not online. (Those decisions were made WAY above my pay grade so please don't smite the messenger.) However, I've heard recently we may be reconsidering, but no guarantees. Stay tuned, and if that changes I'll post here.

The Nexus wireless charger that Google sells works great on the G3. One of my neighbors has this set up on his T-Mobile G3.

Interesting...For some reason Best Buy and Radio Shack stopped carrying the Qi chargers too. I picked up a Tylt wireless charger on sale at T-Mobile for $35 bucks. Very happy with it.

Once you go wireless you don't go back.

They probably don't want to deal with all the returns with iPhone owners that mistakenly buy Qi instead of Powermat for the 6.

*Speculation, but I can't think of another reason why Starbucks chose Powermat for their stores.

And oh hell yes wireless charging is awesome!

Yeah. I don't get wanting wireless charging to be as fast as plugged because of heat. But people on xda seem to freak if it is just a tad slower.

I didn't realize you can make wireless charging work with past phones I had. I would have done this awhile ago. So much easier putting the phone on the stand then plugging the cable in the dark in bed. lol

Total cost for wireless charging was $50 bucks. I could have saved 6 bucks on the sticker if I ordered it from China. Good thing is wireless charging for my next phone will only be around $10. Sucks the UK G3's come with wireless charging out of box and maybe a stand. Stupid America greed.

Here's the China website that you can get the receiver to allow wireless charging. Have some cheap prices on accessories.

At least if the iPhone 6 rumors of wireless charging are true, the carriers probably won't be able to pull that crap any longer as manufacturers will have to have it standard to compete.
