BARCELONA, Spain--Hot new handsets weren't the only products LG had up its sleeve at MWC. The phone maker also unveiled a new wireless charger, the LG WCP-300.

About the size and shape of your average bar coaster, the WCP-300 is designed to be simple and straight forward. Once connected to a power outlet (or Micro-USB port), just drop your compatible phone onto the WCP-300's disc-shaped charging pad. A small LED on the charger's edge lights up in green when juice is flowing.

Since the LG WCP-300 relies on the Qi wireless charging standard, it supports numerous smartphones natively such as the LG Nexus 4 , HTC Droid DNA , and Nokia Lumia 920 . In fact, here at MWC I placed my Nexus 4 device onto the gadget (showcased at LG's booth) and was able to begin charging in seconds.

Pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but be sure to check back soon as more details emerge.
