AT&T’s LG G3 does support wireless charging, but if you’ve invested in any Qi charging mats, don’t expect them to work. The AT&T version of the device will only work with PMA (Power Matters Alliance) charging pads, which includes offerings from Duracell and a few other companies. AT&T has pretty publicly tried to support PMA charging instead of Qi, so this move makes sense for the company, even though it’s not great for customers.
According to an official response from LG, AT&T did not certify Qi for use in the G3, opting instead for the PMA standard in the device. Since this version of the G3 is completely lacking that particular hardware element, you won’t be able to swap out backs or batteries or anything to get it to work with Qi. That’s pretty unfortunate since a majority of the wireless charging materials being sold do use Qi, not PMA. If you visit Starbucks a lot, there is a silver lining, however; the Duracell power mats that Starbucks is installing in its coffee shops all use the PMA standard, so they should work with this variant of the G3.
Have you tried using any wireless charging accessories with your G3 yet?
