LG announces world’s smallest wireless charger ‘WCP-300’

Wireless charging will soon be present in almost all flagship smartphones and it makes sense that the manufacturers to start focussing on wireless chargers. After a beautiful Nexus 4 wireless charger, LG has now announced the so-called world’s smallest wireless charger – WCP-300 today.

Certification ensures that the WCP-300 is compatible with all smartphones that support the Qi standard,” LG noted in a press release.

WCP-300 will support Nexus 4, LG Spectrum 2, Optimus G Pro, vu II and LTE II smartphones among others.

The charger will arrive this week in South Korea for 65,000 won (roughly $60). It also scheduled to be released in other markets in the coming weeks.
