FCC Approves the First Wireless Charging System



No more hassle of plugging in your mobile device to a charger or keeping it on the charging station. The new wireless charging technology approved by the Federal Communication Commission will charge your mobile from three feet away.

The WattUp Mid Field transmitter invented by San Jose-based startup, Energos, received the first FCC certification for its power-at-distance charging technology.

The WattUp charging device can charge multiple devices simultaneously and offers charging services for devices ranging from phone, tablets, keyboard, and earbuds, as long as they are outfitted with the appropriate receiver. The charging device technology is manufacturer agnostic, which means you can still charge your Samsung phone even If the transmitter is made by Nokia or Apple.

According to Martin Cooper, an Energous Board of Directors member, said the WattUp “represents an incredibly positive lifestyle change. This ground-breaking technology allows users to automatically charge their WattUp-enabled devices without having to remove them from their wrist or pocket, plug them in or place them on a mat to charge, freeing them from ever having to think about charging their devices again.”

Energos is planning to exhibit the technology at CES 2018, in Las Vegas from 09th -12th Jan’2018. However the company does not have any retail outlet yet.
