Size doesn’t matter, what matters the most is technology. Emergence of slates is a living example of it. Now, LG has added another fold on this regard. The Korean company has introduced the world’s smallest wireless charger. This useful product has been introduced at the currently going on second technology extravaganza, ‘Mobile World Congress’ in Barcelona, Spain.
The device is called WCP-300 and measures only 6.cm in diameter. According to LG, it has been designed with portability in mind. Its charging zone is 1.7 times wider that LG’s previous generation wireless chargers. Best part of the device is that it’s compatible with a standard 5-pin micro USB charger.
WCP-300 plays with the electromagnetic induction technology and is Qi certified by the Wireless Power Consortium. The electromagnetic induction generates a magnetic field which in turn generates electric current and charges the battery in your device placed on the charging pad. Both the much hyped device LG Spectrum 2 and Nexus 4 are featured with native wireless charging support.
We must inform you here that Qi, which is called the “chee” interface standard has been developed by the Wireless Consortium. It can provide electrical power transfer over distances up to 44mm/1.6 inches. That means, devices very close to a Qi power charger can regain their energy wirelessly. But those must be Qi-compatible.
This tiny charger that’s even smaller than a tea cup has a great usage for the devices like Optimus G Pro, Vu II and LTE II Smartphones. But, if your device is wireless charging compatible, then you can have the product. The built-in support of wireless charging is considered as one of the key factors for the growth of wireless charging industry. LG also think similar ways to support its upcoming Smartphones. However, the smallest charger is definitely going to drag attentions.
The device is expected to be available for sales in the homeland of the company soon, with a price tag of about 65,000 won (roughly $60 / 46 Euro), though nothing has been mentioned about its release.
