Companies like Poco are known for their cheap and value for money phones. It’s actually a good thing that they make phones like these as it makes smartphones more accessible to the masses. Sure, it might not pack the fanciest of hardware, but generally speaking they’re usually more than capable of getting the job done.
The trade off here is that in order to keep costs down and to make the phones affordable, Poco had to omit certain features from the phone. One of the features that did not make the cut was wireless charging, but there is some good news on that front.
If you don’t mind spending a little bit of money, you can actually buy some third-party accessories that will give the Poco F3 phone wireless charging capabilities, and here’s how.
How to give wireless charging to the Poco F3
In order to give your Poco F3 wireless charging, you will need a wireless charging adapter. This adapter basically adds a wireless charging coil externally to your phone, kind of like how a power bank is essentially an external battery pack.
There are a couple of wireless charging adapters that you might be interested in checking out, one of which is from Nillkin and the other is from Olixar. While the Poco F3 is not specifically listed as being supported, they do connect through USB-C so there is a good chance it could work.
- Once you’ve gotten your wireless charging adapter, unpack it
- Plug it into the USB-C port of the Poco F3
- Place your phone on top of a wireless charging mat and you’re all set
Do note that depending on the adapter, some of which will support being placed inside of a case which kind of makes the wireless charging more “permanent”, but this means that the USB-C port will always be occupied. If not, then you’ll have to plug it in and out whenever you need to wirelessly charge your device.
Now like we said, in addition to the adapter, you will also need a charging mat or pad. There are several that we have listed below that are pretty affordable and won’t break the bank, so take a look if you’re interested.
