I used my old Samsung charger, the one that came with my NVIDIA Shield Tablet, and the one that came with the G3, all with the same effect. Thing is, I was using the same cable with all three adapters. When I switched to the cable that came with my G3 + the G3 adapter, it started working.

Yeah, I've been surprised at just how much different the cable makes. I've got some thin cables that work fine plugged directly into the phone, but not when used with a Qi charger.


My actual question is: When charging the phone, I get the orange LED glow. While I'm charging it wirelessly, the LED seems to be pulsing softly. It doesn't ever turn off but it does seem to be cycling between dim and bright. Is that normal?

While it's charging (wirelessly), open up the battery screen, and make sure it displays Charging (wirelessly) continuously. With one charger I tried, and with some poor cables, mine cycles repeatedly between charging and discharging.

How much time does the phone take to get fully charged with thoses chargers ?

I've never actually timed it, but I think it charges fast enough up to about 90%. Then it seems to take a lot longer to get that last 10%.

The max output of a Qi charging system is about 1 amp, so in theory it would take about 3 hours to bring a discharged G3 battery to near full charge.

Could you please send me a picture of positioning and such when you're using that charging pad? I have the same one and have been completely unable to get it to work without getting the slow charging warning.

I've got it plugged into a Samsung 2A wall wart at the minute, but have also tried one of the 2.4A lines on my iXCC 4-port charger, which has had even worse results - it keeps turning off and turning back on, leading to new "slow charging" beeps and warnings..

I'm also curious - does yours "shut off" when it finishes charging? No trickle charging? Mine does, and it causes me problems with my Titanium Backup schedules.

I'm starting to get frustrated and thinking about returning it.

I got the proper LG G3 wireless charger the other day and am using it with the cable and charger that came with the phone.

The screen keeps going to sleep then waking up again every 10 seconds or so when im trying to sleep. So back to normal charging for me unless someone can shed any light on this problem?
