Poco is known for creating value for money phones, and with the Poco X3 GT, they have done just that. It might not be the most powerful phone in the market right now, but at its asking price and given its specs and features, it’s hard to complain about it. We’re talking about a nice and large full screen 6.6-inch display, an octa-core chipset, and a triple camera setup.
It’s pretty much everything you might need in a smartphone these days, minus all the frills. That being said, it does lack something and that is wireless charging. For some, this isn’t an issue since wired charging is typically a lot faster and you don’t need to purchase additional accessories, but if you can appreciate the convenience that wireless charging has to offer, then fret not.
This is because with a couple of accessories that you can buy off Amazon cheaply, you’ll be able to give the Poco X3 GT wireless charging capabilities easily.
What you will need:
- A wireless charging adapter
- A wireless charger
Wireless charging adapter
As the Poco X3 GT does not come with built-in wireless charging, you’ll need a device known as a wireless charging adapter. This is similar to how you can buy 3.5mm jack adapters that connect to your phone’s USB-C port, so in a way this is similar.
This accessory then plugs into the phone’s USB-C port and transfers energy from the charging mat to your phone, charging it, using pretty much the same wireless charging tech you might find in other smartphones that have it built-in.
These adapters are generally pretty thin which means that you can slide it inside of your phone’s case and no one will be the wiser. The only “problem” is that it occupies your USB-C port so you will have to remove it if you need the port for wired charging or if you need to transfer data from your phone to your computer and vice versa.

Now that you’ve gotten a wireless charging adapter, you’ll need a wireless charger. If you already have one at home that’s Qi compatible, then you should be able to use it just fine, if not here are some of our recommendations.

That being said, we should put a caveat and say that don’t expect the speedy charging speeds we’ve seen from other manufacturers. While your Poco X3 GT will have no troubles charging over wireless using the solutions we mention above, you probably won’t be able to hit those 30W charging speeds other handsets might support.
Sure, it might be slower, but if you value the convenience of wireless charging and are willing to accept the slower speeds, then we suppose this won’t be much of an issue.
