After reading through this thread, a couple people made mention of a possible back cover that replaces our stock one and enables wireless charging on the U.S. LG G3. As someone who has 2 wireless Qi chargers laying around collecting dust, I was very excited to get wireless charging capabilities on my G3 like I had on my Nexus 5. So I immediately placed my order.

For Only $38 shipped, it was definitely worth a shot. I ordered it from HERE (eBay) on August 2nd. It finally arrived today (August 21st) and I immediately unwrapped it and got it installed.

I'm happy to say that it works flawlessly with both the Tylt Vue Wireless Charger and LG WCP-700 Wireless Charging Pad.

I tested it both without a case and with a TPU case so I can confirm it will work just fine with a case just like the Nexus 5 did. For those curious, the new wireless back is the exact same dimensions as the stock one and clips right into the phone just the same.

Overall: It's perfect and works exactly as intended. I recommend this to anyone wanting to get wireless charging enabled on their G3.

Now on for some pics...

Does it randomly disconnect and reconnect? Both of my Nokia dt910 do that. I have a cheap pad from amazon coming to test.

I wanted 4 wireless chargers so I went cheap, I know not the smartest thing. lol I guess I got knock offs and they charge and disconnect. I've tried different cables but no worky. My NFC works so I guess my sticker I bought in the main accessory section should be good right? I really like that Tylt charger just don't want to sped that much since I want 4.

It doesn't randomly disconnect with either charger. The Tylt Vue is flawless. The LG charger gives me the "charging slowly" message but from what I have seen it charges just as fast so to me that's a non-issue. But again, neither charger randomly disconnects.

Got mine this afternoon too. Wireless charging is flawless with my nexus 4 orb, not so much with my nexus 5 one though. Slides too much on the glass. Haven't tried to see if NFC is working yet. Not to say it won't, but I do want to make sure.

Do you get bulging around the volume rocker?

I have tried NFC now and it works fine. Only issue is that the cover isn't fully flush on the bottom of the phone. It sits a hair higher than the phone frame. Barely noticeable, but present.

I have absolutely no bulging around the volume rocker. It's completely flush all the way around.

I just took my TPU case off and inspected the edges of the back plate and can confirm that I don't have this issue. It sits 100% flush with the edge of the phone. It looks no different than the stock back plate on the phone.
