I bought one last pad that someone else confirmed works and hopefully that will be the answer.

Are you sure that the qi stickers are good? I thing that qi charging is no different than most things in life, you get what you pay for.

Think So
I believe the stickers are good, I bought this one from Amazon -- http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Charg...words=lg+g3+qi

I also got a cheaper one from Ebay, they both do the same thing. I am tempted to try an official case if the next charger still doesn't work.

Final charger, same issue, it does the power cycle issue where it will charge for 10 seconds, stop charging, and then start charging again. I wonder if only people with the Amazon/Ebay stickers have this issue. I have tried two stickers and 3 different cheap chargers with the same outcome.

This is the last one I tried--

I kind of agree, that you should invest in a quality charger. I also have the Tylt Vu and can attest that it just works. Doesn't matter how you place it, it just always begins charging, for me anyway. However if I did not get it at a discount, I don't think I would have bought it. $70 is a bit steep for this. I was able to get one at $35 from T-Mobile as they had them on clearance. Another option is the Itian A6. This is basically a knock off of the Tylt but works just as well at have the price. Ships from China, so you need to wait about a week to two weeks for it to arrive. Last option is the Choetech Stadium charger. This also works well. I had this one as well but returned it. It works, but was not happy with the size. The G3 is much larger than the charging pad so it could easily be knocked off. This is the only reason I returned it. Had no issue with it charging. Good luck.

I got this one from Amazon. It worked briefly, and then stopped. I'm going to send it back.

This one seems to be working better, but we'll see how long it lasts.

I don't need wireless charging enough at work or at home to spend $40 or $50 or more on a charging pad. I would like to have wireless charging in the car, but have yet to fine a Qi equipped car mount that meets my other requirements. I'm going to work on a DIY version. If it works, I'll post a how-to here on XDA.

G3 has a big battery, 3000mAh and needs 1.8A+ mains/car charger to charge properly. Then, the QI standard suffers from significant transformation losses, comapred to cable charging. So, if the mains/car charger provides 1.8A, lets say 0.5A get lost in the cable, heat, etc, and if you use QI, you loose 1A (the field drops drastically with each millimeter of distance)

If the car/mains adapter used to power the QI provides low current, than the QI provides weaker charging field on its turn. Logically, G3 may be set to warn you if provided field is weaker then necessary and there is some chance that this concurring message pops up and slow or no charging happens.

So, my current charging setup (not a G3 device):

Home: stock 1.2A mains charger with stock cable - used directly works veeery fast.
Used with $10 noname chinese QI works slower, but not as slow as a standard USB port charging.
Car: Hama car charger 2.1A + 50cm thick, gold-plated cable - charges faster than stock adapter+cable.
Outdoor: ADATA PV100 power bank, 2.1A output, 5cm low resistance cable - charges faster than stock mains charger+cable.
