First Power-At-A-Distance Wireless Charging System Has Been Approved By FCC

Right now, it is quite legit to argue that wireless charging is not really wireless because you still need to place your device physically on top of a charging mat to fuel it up. But, it seems that things are likely to be changed from now on, as FCC has recently given approval for the first power-at-a-distance wireless charging system, which is an innovation of Energous. So yes, we are getting closer to witness the true wireless charging very soon.

Energous, a San Jose-based startup, revealed on Tuesday that it has officially received the FCC certification for power-at-a-distance wireless charging with its WattUp Mid Field transmitter. The transmitter works pretty effectively, it first converts electricity into a radio frequency, then sends the energy to nearby devices connected to a corresponding receiver.

For now, the company doesn’t have any device ready for the customers, but it has some serious plans to show off this much-needed technology at CES 2018, which will take place in a couple of weeks. So, we will have more to say about it then.
