    Does the G have a Qi receiver, or is it just capable of having one installed? Qi-compatible doesn't necessarily say that the receiver is included.

    The MOTO G doesn't come w/QI hardware installed,hence the adapter/pad,which plugs-in to the USB Port & in turn,charges the battery,when placed on a QI Charger.

    I actually installed the abovementioned pad/adapter underneath the cover plate & attempted to charge wirelessly w/no success. :(

    Was just holding out hope that it is perhaps just this one particular pad that doesn't work w/the MOTO G & someone else may have had success w/another pad/adapter.

    Just found this thread over @ XDA-DEVELOPERS,apparently most have had success using this adapter method:

    I've got 2 more charging coils on the way from e-Bay,same as what some in the above link have had success with:

    EDIT:

    Looks like root may be necessary to enable wireless charging.
    Many thanks to XDA-DEVELOPERS member dubidu for the mod/app to enable wireless charging:
