Wireless charging may finally have a shot at going mainstream in 2013, and we’ve recently seen companies like Samsung begin to more publicly embrace the technology with the creation of their own wireless chargers. The latest one to be announced comes to us from LG, and it is one tiny little thing – LG calls it the smallest in the world.
LG’s model WCP-300 looks like a flattened hockey puck; imagine taking the comparatively bulky Nexus 4 charger and just chopping off the bottom. You’re left with a charger that looks more like a coaster than anything else, and should fit in right at home on your desk without stealing a lot of real estate nor particularly looking much like a gadget. It measures a hair under seven centimeters in diameter
This guy is Qi-compliant, so it will work just as well on the Nexus 4, new LG models like the Optimus G Pro, or phones from other manufacturers that support the same standard.
