If you had to pick one application as the ‘holy grail’ of wireless charging, mobile phones would probably be it.
Who hasn’t suffered from ‘low battery anxiety’, or frantically searched for a charging outlet at an airport.
Wi-Charge’s technology is uniquely positioned to charge mobile phones and we have demonstrated this publicly many times. IR technology can deliver watts of power (enough to charge a phone) to a small receiver at room-sized distances, all while keeping within consumer safety certifications.
Having said that, it may be that mobile phone charging might not be the first mass-market application of long-range wireless power. To be truly useful, one would need an abundance of “Wi-Chargers” installed in many public places: coffee shops, airports, office buildings, etc. It may be that applications, where the charged device stays in the one general location, will be adopted quicker.
