At the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2013 at Barcelona, LG has unveiled a new wireless charger which it claims is the smallest of all such devices available across the world.
The newly introduced wireless charger from LG gets its model number dubbed as WCP-300. It appears to be a standard table coaster in design and its dimensions measure at 6.9cm in diameter. But, despite its small size, it possesses a charging surface which is 1.7 times wider than the previous generation wireless charger available from the manufacturer.
The WCP-300 offers top class charging capabilities coupled with portability at the same time. Drawing its power through a 5-pin micro USB connection, this mobile accessory is certified by the Wireless Power Consortium. It will be compatible with any smart device that offers support to the Consortium standard.
This LG wireless charger works with any 5-pin micro USB charger and also exhibits Qi wireless charging feature.
South Korea will be the first market to witness the arrival of the WCP-300 wireless charger with the release of the accessory scheduled this week. However, it is expected to hit the store shelves of the global markets soon. It is expected to be priced around $60.
Before the commencement of the Mobile World Congress, LG was speculated to showcase some Optimus smartphones at the event and of course it did that. The introduction of the wireless charger seems to be a boon for the smartphones users.
