The round devices pictured below may not look like much, but LG is very proud to have made it, as this is the smallest wireless charger in the world.
Called LG WCP-300, the new charger is Qi-certified, thus being compatible with all handsets which support the Qi standard – including the Google Nexus 4, LG Optimus G Pro, Optimus Vu II, or LG Spectrum 2. The WCP-300 is also compatible with standard 5-pin micro-USB chargers.
The WCP-300 is only 6.9cm in diameter, and yet offers a charging area that’s 1.7 times wider than what you’re getting from previous generation LG wireless chargers.
“Wireless charging is the holy grail of smartphone user convenience. With the WCP-300, LG was able to deliver both portability with top-class charging capabilities in a device no larger than a typical beverage coaster”, declared Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Priced at around $59, the LG WCP-300 will be first available in South Korea – starting this week – in two color versions: black and white. It’s going to be launched in other markets (including the US) shortly after that.
LG is committed to further provide enhanced mobile user experiences by “introducing new smartphones with more advanced wireless charging technologies” around the world.
