LG Innotek unveils new wireless quick-charger for smartphones
The charging system promises to charge from 0 to 50 percent in 30 minutes with a power transmission of up to 15 Watts.

LG subsidiary LG Innotek is the technology group responsible for developing innovative products in the fields of automotive, displays, semiconductors, LEDs, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile. The company has announced through a press release that its latest wireless charging station can charge smartphones faster and more efficiently than existing wireless chargers.

New 15 Watt LG wireless charging module

The manufacturer claims to have upped the power transfer of its wireless transmitter to 15 W and with a launch date before the end of the year. LG promises a more optimized wireless charging system than its competitors.

LG Quick Charge to charge up to 50 percent in 30 minutes

According to LG, its upcoming wireless charger can charge a completely discharged battery pack to 50 percent capacity in just 30 minutes. Unfortunately, the manufacturer makes no mention of the capacity of the actual battery or other details, so the claim is very questionable under real-world circumstances. For reference, the LG G4 and G5 carry 3000 mAh and 2800 mAh battery packs, respectively. The wireless charger will be in compliance with other wireless specifications to avoid interference with other devices. LG plans on expanding its 15 W transmitter beyond smartphones for use in the office or personal vehicle.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
