We all rely heavily on our mobile devices to keep us connected and informed at all times, in all places. One of the biggest hindrances of our portable technology is making sure our smartphones, laptops, tablets and other devices are charged when we need them to be. Enter Energous Corporation and their safe, wire-free charging technology, WattUp. This cutting-edge technology will change the way households in Menlo Park and companies in Sunnyvale manage their electronic devices.
The San Jose-based company has developed its radio-frequency (RF) based WattUp technology that provides “the freedom to roam where you want to” while ensuring your devices remain charged. The award-winning wire-free charging technology is poised to alter the way both people and industries charge their battery-powered devices. A revolutionary, intelligent and scalable solution based on radio frequencies, WattUp is patent-pending and is gaining significant notice by investors and companies the likes of Apple.
How it works
The WattUp Power Router transmits highly targeted pockets of energy through numerous minute antenna arrays and control chips.
