LG is definitely one of the most active companies at this year’s Mobile World Congress, having already shown several new smartphones and announcing it has acquired webOS from HP. It seems LG doesn’t plan to stop there, as it just announced the “world’s smallest” wireless charging device. The WCP-300 is a little black pad, just 6.9cm in diameter. It’s compatible with a standard 5-pin micro-USB charger, and complies with the Qi standards of the Wireless Power Consortium. As for the devices that support it, there are two available in the U.S. market: the LG Spectrum and the Nexus 4. The freshly showcased LG Optimus G Pro also supports this technology, but we don’t know when it’ll become available in the U.S. Like all companies trying to push wireless charging tech to the market, LG hopes more and more upcoming smartphones will have built-in support for this tech.
