Lg’s New Wireless Charger Embodies Innovation In Design
Introduced at MWC 2012, LG’s Cradle-Shaped Wireless Charger Maximizes User Convenience with Larger Charging Area and More Flexibility
wireless charger, WCD-800, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012. The WCD-800 is
designed in the shape of a cradle to allow to the phone to be positioned vertically to
make video calls and send text messages or horizontally to view TV programs and HD
movies while charging.
“As smartphones become the defacto medium for consuming multimedia content and
communicating, it is not unusual to find oneself having to recharge a phone a couple
times a day,” said John Lee, President of LG Electronics Saudi Arabia. “It only made sense to turn that charging time into a positive user experience by making the smartphone useful while sitting in the cradle.”
LG’s newest charger also eliminates the inconvenience of the cable that must be
plugged into the smartphone when recharging. With the WCD-800, charging is accomplished by simply placing the phone on the deck of the 75.8mm wide cradle. The charging area is double the size of LG’s previous wireless charger, the WCP-700.
Using electromagnetic induction, the WCD-800 relies on electric currents produced by
the magnetic fields of the electric coils located under the charger. Despite its unrivaled
convenience, the WCD-800 exhibits efficiency and effectiveness equivalent to that of
conventional wired chargers.
LG’s wireless charger is compatible with all devices compliant with the Wireless Power
Consortium (WPC) ’s Qi standard, the global standard for wireless power.
The WCD-800 will be introduced first in Korea followed by North America in the first
half of the year.
