Wireless charging has become a premium feature and found in high-end phones only nowadays. Long back I used this feature in Palm Pre 2 which was a mid-range smartphone. It’s quite surprising that even the LG Stylo series is not Qi-Enabled.
In this post, we are going to learn how to enable wireless charging on LG K30. By now you must have understood that K30 lacks wireless charging as even LG Stylo 5 is missing this feature.
However, the good news is that its quite easy to enable wireless charging on LG K30. Let’s Learn how to do that –
How to enable Wireless Charging on LG K30
1. Get an LG K30 Wireless Charger Receiver
While shopping for a Wireless receiver for K30 make sure its charging port is Micro USB Type-A. LG K30 has a Type-A micro USB charging port with narrow-side up.
Nillkin Qi Wireless Charger Receiver
Ths receiver goes into the micro USB port of K30. It comes with a flap that goes to the back of the phone. To keep it in place you should use a case. The phones which are Qi-enabled have this receiver built-in.
For the best result, I would suggest Nillkin Wireless Charger Receiver for LG K30. It comes for around $12.99. It has got a very thin flap with a sticker. Once you paste the flap on the back, you can use the phone without a case.
Another Qi Wireless Charger Receiver
There is one more Qi receiver with a very good rating and a similar price. You can have this as well instead of Nillkin receiver.

Pros & Cons – LG K30 Wireless Charging
- Very Easy to Setup.
- Hassle-Free Wireless Charging.
- Slow Charging. (Charging rate matches with a 1 Amp Charger)
- The phone gets little hot while charging
- Makes some hissing noise
A wireless charger can never match the speed of a wired charger. If you give more importance to convenience over the charging speed than wireless charging can work well for you. Otherwise, the wired charger is a better option.
