True wireless at-a-distance power charger WattUp gets approved by FCC

True wireless at-a-distance power charger WattUp gets approved by FCC

The company has now got the first approval certificate from FCC (Federal Communications Commission). The prime functioning of this charging system is based on the transmitter that converts electricity into radio frequencies and then beams that energy to the nearby devices which are outfitted with a corresponding receiver. Energous' WattUp is addressing that and has eliminated the need for the device to be in physical contact with the charger. You can stop charging a particular device from the app, and start is charging again without any hassle. Energous said its device was the first to receive approval under Part 18 of the FCC's rules, which allow for higher-power operations than other wireless-charging solutions.

The mechanism doesn't require any physical contact between the two. It can charge a mobile phone fitness tracker, Bluetooth speaker, earbuds, etc. So, if you're using a Sony smartphone with the transmitter made by another manufacturer such as Samsung, it still charges the device.


Matthew Reynolds, associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, said contactless charging is a concept many companies have been striving to develop for quite some time because of the enormous consumer demand. Instead they are planning to showcase this invention at CES 2018 which will go to held from January 9th to January 12th of 2018 at Las Vegas.

Also in February, they promised to ship a finished product by the end of the year 2017, although nothing came out of it. Let's just hope this time the company is not just playing with people's minds here.
