LG shows off 'world's smallest' wireless charger Today at the Mobile World Congress convention, LG unveiled the "world's smallest" wireless charger, clocking in at just 6.9-cm in diameter.
The device will use the Qi standard seen on rival chargers, and it also uses "electromagnetic induction technology, meaning users will be required to place their mobile device directly on the wireless charger itself in order to replenish the battery," says TH.

Dubbed the WCP-300, the new charger is compatible with standard 5-pin micro-USB chargers, and the company says the LG Nexus 4 and the LG Spectrum 2 can use the charger right out of the box.

"Wireless charging is the holy grail of smartphone user convenience," noted 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."

There was no word on availability or price.
