FCC Approves First Distance Wireless Charging System

Shares of Energous ( WATT ) jumped late Tuesday after the company said federal regulators have approved its wireless charging technology to power smartphones, fitness trackers and other devices over the air and from a distance. The transmitter converts electricity to radio frequencies, which are then beamed into devices that have a corresponding receiver.

While phones would seem like an obvious target for charging-at-a-distance technology, a number of devices could potentially benefit from such a feature, including tablets, smartwatches, wireless mice and keyboards and just about anything that needs a charge to stay powered up.

You can charge your Samsung phone even if the transmitter is manufactured by Apple or Sony, What else any company can do for you? But rather than require the use of a wireless charging pad, the iPhone would recharge wirelessly at a considerable distance.

It's been a while since we last heard anything about Energous. Energous hasn't yet specified the wireless standard involved in the process.

In a major step forward for charging technology, the FCC has certified the first at-a-distance wireless charging system. FCC approval, recently granted to startup Energous, marks an important milestone on the path toward getting this tech in a phone you actually use.

Van Dijk 'delighted and honoured' to join Liverpool
Van Dijk, who has never hidden his admiration for Liverpool , said in a statement he was "delighted and honoured" to sign. Dembele has been linked with clubs in the Premier League, Ligue 1 and Serie A in advance of the January window opening.

Energous released a video demonstrating this WattUp mechanism. WattUp is also capable of charging multiple devices at once. It's a big leap for the electronics industry to include wireless charging in most common mobile devices, smart appliances, and other gadgets.

This specific system is manufactured similarly to that of normal Wifi which means the transmitter is no way linked to the functioning of the charging system.

"Older wireless charging technologies have received limited adoption over the past 15 years, and are confined to contact-based charging only".

Currently, Energous doesn't have any retail product, but the company may show off the new technology at the CES 2018 event in Las Vegas.
