Wireless charging technology is like smartwatches as though they provide convenience, they have been adopted at a slower pace that previously expected. One of the biggest drawbacks with wireless charging technology is its slow nature when compared to wired versions. LG is looking to solve this problem with the company’s new wireless charging pads which it says can charges up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
This is odd to some degree considering that LG doesn’t have a phone in its current lineup that supports wireless charging but the new Quick Wireless Charging Pad is coming to North America, Europe, and Australia in mid-October.
One of biggest takeaways with the charger is its compliant with the Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi standard, additionally, it is also expected to be the first commercially available Qi charger capable of supplying 15 watts to a smartphone rather than just 5 watts.
It should be noted for safety purposes that increasing power levels in batteries rapidly could result in overheating but the company has fitted the Quick Wireless Charging Pad with heat sensors which can monitor and detect increasing temperatures of a smartphone and shut off the charger if the phone gets too warm beyond specified levels.
There is no word yet on how much LG’s Quick Wireless Charging Pads will cost when they are launched in October.
