IR power delivery is great, but is it safe?

Yes!

Wi-Charge UL certificationWi-Charge earned international, U.S. and Canadian UL and Class 1 laser safety certification, meaning that it is safe under all foreseeable conditions of use. With these certifications the Wi-Charge system is now the only market-ready, long-range wireless charging solution that safely delivers meaningful power to smart devices at room-sized distances while meeting all global regulatory and safety requirements.

The Wi-Charge system meets all the regulatory requirements for global introduction into the market in most regions, including the U.S., Europe, China, South Korea and Japan. Manufacturers that embed Wi-Charge modules can leverage Wi-Charge’s safety certification and achieve a simple and streamlined regulatory approval process without having to undergo separate laser certification for their products. Through the Powered by Wi-Charge program, Wi-Charge assists in all the relevant filings.

Wi-Charge uses point-to-point delivery so that 100% of the optical energy from the transmitter reaches the receiver. This means that unlike other approaches to wireless power 0% reaches people, pets, plants or other objects.

Wi-Charge uses infrared light. Living organisms have been thriving with IR light for millions of years. Approximately 50% of the sun’s energy reaching earth is IR, and IR is the method that nature chose to deliver wireless power

SafetyMapIn summary, Wi-Charge provides a unique combination of safety and power. We believe that

  • Safety without power is useless.
  • Power without safety is dangerous.
  • Power AND safety is Wi-Charge.
