With the amount of buzz wireless charging has been getting these days, you would think it’s a new invention. But in reality, technology for wireless charging has been in existence since the 80’s, 1981 to be exact. Nevertheless, it can’t be discounted that today’s industry has contributed a lot to that technology’s development. Smartphone manufacturers, such as Samsung, Nokia, and HTC, are leading the way with this one, attempting to offer as much convenience as possible to consumers wanting to juice their gadgets without the hassle of cables. The question in the minds of many now is whether wireless charging technology will develop enough to take over the whole industry.
Smartphones and their chargers are inseparable. Most heavy smartphone users know that from experience. If you use your smartphone at nearly any chance you get, you’ve probably run into more than your fair share of battery shortage. A low battery usually means a desperate search or an active lookout for a wall outlet where you can charge your phone back to full state, hopefully avoiding any disruptions in communications. Wireless chargers eliminate the need to do any searching and the presence of a cable. And LG’s version of the wireless charger, the WCP-300, bundles convenience with ultimate portability as the “world’s smallest.”
The LG WCP-300, showcased by the company during the World Mobile Congress 2013, has rights to the claim as the world’s smallest wireless charger.
