Add wireless charging to almost any LG G4 without an expensive Quick Circle case for just $15 [Video]

While many flagship smartphones have wireless charging built in as standard, LG opted against it with the G4.

Some Galaxy S8 owners are having trouble with fast wireless charging

The Galaxy S8 may not have the best battery life on a smartphone today, but it makes up for that with just about every charging method available. You’ve got standard and fast charging over USB-C, as well as compatibility with both Qi and PMA wireless charging.

LG smartphone w/ new wireless charging standard reportedly ready to launch, works at up to 7 cm distance

Wireless charging, while not as popular as it once was, is still one of the coolest features you can get on any smartphone.
