Feb. 26, 2013 – LG Electronics (LG) today introduced the world’s smallest wireless charger. At only 6.9cm in
diameter, the WCP-300 is designed with portability in mind. Despite its di-minutive size, the charging area is 1.7 times wider than
that of LG’s previous generation wireless charger. The new model is compatible with a standard 5-pin micro-USB charger, providing
the highest level of charging performance and user convenience.
The WCP-300 employs electromagnetic induction technology and is Qi certified by the Wireless Power Consortium.
Electromagnetic induction produces a magnetic field that in turn generates an electric current to charge the batteries in devices
placed on the charging pad. Certification ensures that the WCP-300 is compatible with all smart-phones that support the Qi standard.
“Wireless charging is the holy grail of smartphone user convenience,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics
Mobile Communications Company. “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.”
In the US market, both the LG Spectrum 2 and Nexus 4 feature built-in support for wireless charging right out of the box,
eliminating the need to purchase separate covers. LG believes that built-in support for upcoming smartphones will be the most
critical development in making wireless charging the industry standard going forward.
LG is committed to offering consumers a better mobile user experience by introducing smartphones with more advanced
wireless charging technologies in the global market.
