LG Tribute Royal is the latest Tribute device. It is an improvement from its predecessor especially with the 18:9 aspect ratio and a bigger display. Still, it leaves a lot to be desired. Tribute Royal lacks fast charging & still uses a Micro USB Port.
With Fast charging, you need to charge your phone less frequently. A phone with USB C is easier to charge with a symmetrical connector. Unlike Micro USB you can connect it in either direction.
Now, as Tribute Royal lacks USB C & Fast Charging, its in a dire need of Wireless Charging. In this post, we are going to learn how to make Tribute Royal Qi-compatible. So, Let’s proceed with the tutorial –
Does LG Tribute Royal have Wireless Charging? / Is LG Tribute Royal Qi-enabled?
As even the newly launched LG Stylo 6 lacks wireless charging, we cannot expect this feature from an entry-level Tribute Royal.
However, if you’re adamant to enable this feature on Tribute Royal, you can do so quite easily –
We only need a qi receiver and charging pad to make tribute royal qi enabled. The above image shows a Wireless Charger Receiver.
We have to insert the receiver’s pin into the Tribute royal’s charging port. The flap goes to the back of the phone.
This is how it looks when attached to the charging port. Now our Tribute royal is qi enabled. We just need to place it on a charging pad.
The back flap can be secured using a thin case.
The Nillkin receiver flap comes with a sticker. But this way your charging port will remain occupied.
The above image shows the charging pad. We have to power it with a wall charger.
It uses a micro USB port. The other end of the micro USB cable goes to the ac adapter. There are many charging pads with USB C port as well.
I used a very cheap charging pad just to experiment. For practical use, you should get a better quality pad.
An orange light indicates it’s powered on.
Now I’ve placed my tribute royal on the charging pad. It says battery fully charged. My phone battery is already at 100% but you can still notice the charging icon. The phone is charging wirelessly.
This the Tribute Royal home screen. You can see it at 100% battery level but still charging.
The orange light turns blue when the phone is getting charged. You can notice the charging pad’s Blue light in the dark.
This is the bottom view of the wireless charging arrangement.
The charging equipment I used is a very cheap one. I found it quite impractical for real-world usage due to its slow charging speed. It also makes a hissing noise while charging.
If you are really serious about qi charging on your tribute royal you should invest in a better pair of receiver and charging pad.
I have shortlisted some of the best selling and highly rated qi receivers and charging pads. You cannot go wrong with any of them.
