LG Announces World's Smallest Wireless Charging Pad

LG announced what it claims to be the world's smallest wireless charging pad, the WCP-300. The hockey puck-shaped pad, with a diameter of 6.98 cm (2.75-inch) appears to be an ABS body tightly wrapping a standard Qi induction coil, which makes the pad compatible with pretty much every Qi-charging device in the market; which includes LG-made devices such as the Google Nexus 4, the Optimus G Pro, Optimus Vu: II, and Optimus LTE 2. Slated for a little later this year, and available in piano black and pearl white body color options, the WCP-300 is expected to start selling in Korea first, priced at 65,000 KRW (US $60).
