Wireless Charging becomes a deal-breaker once you get used to it. It not truly wireless the charging pad remains connected to an AC adapter. However, you’re saved from connecting the charging cable to the phone’s charging port. Just place your phone on the pad & it starts charging.
This becomes more useful if your phone lacks fast charging and every now and then you need to connect your phone to a charger. Moreover, with the Micro USB port, every time we have to make sure to connect the cable in the right direction. This gets quite frustrating in the dark.
In this post, we are going to find out whether the LG Aristo 3 / 3 Plus support Qi wireless charging or not. We will also look for ways to enable wireless charging on Aristo 3 (Plus).
Does the LG Aristo 3 have Wireless Charging?
LG Aristo is an entry-level series in the MetroPCS / T-Mobile Android smartphones lineup. If even the latest LG Stylo 6 lacks Wireless Charging, we cannot keep our expectations high from a budget phone.
However, the good news is, it’s quite easy to make LG Aristo 3 Qi-compatible using a 3rd party wireless charger.
First of all, we need a wireless charger receiver as shown in the above image.
The above qi receiver is for Android smartphones with Type-A Micro USB Port.
Check out the port type. It’s narrow on the upper side.
We’ve to insert this qi receiver into the LG Aristo 3 micro USB charging port.
The qi receiver is inserted into the charging port. The flap goes to the back.
We can hold the flap in place using a thin phone case. However, this will affect the charging speed. The Nillkin Receiver flap comes with a sticker to paste it on the back of the phone.
Now, we are ready to place our LG Aristo 3 on a wireless charging pad.
The above image shows the charging pad. This a cheap charging pad. I bought this just for testing. You should get a better wireless charger for practical use.
We have to connect the charging pad to an AC adapter / Wall charger. The charging pad can have a Micro USB or USB Type-C port.
You can check out the charging pad specs.
Once it’s powered via the AC adapter, an orange indicator light shows up.
We can now place our Aristo 3 (Plus) on this charging pad.
The charging pad light changes from orange to blue while charging.

I used a very cheap wireless charger just to experiment. It offers very slow charging speed and makes a hissing noise while charging.
If you’re serious about wireless charging on your Aristo 3, I would suggest better equipment for practical use.
