I wonder if the 70% efficiency is at 6 meters or close to the unit. If it is at 6 meters then that is quite impressive.

I wonder how it targets the signal at the device to produce that efficiency. 2.45GHz is at the upper end of Wi-Fi (channel 8 / 9), so if they can do this for wireless charging, in theory it could be done for Wi-Fi signals also, so multiple devices can operate without sharing the bandwidth as each would have its own RF beam.

On the other hand, the 70% efficiency does make me wonder where the losses are. For example, if this is due to 30% of the energy flying past the device, I don’t think I would want to be holding it up to my ear, considering microwave ovens also operate at 2.45GHz. :eek:

Tesla lives…

I’m a bit wary of the whole concept of wireless charging…:bigsmile:

Does that include Pacemakers???


#7

Maybe it can heat your tv-dinner while charging your phone?


#8

If higher power versions are made available such as for charging laptops, it would not surprise me if they could be hacked into sending energy to keep food warm on a table, assuming the beam direction can be accurately aimed without being able to “lock” on to a target that doesn’t reply.

Then again, such a device would be a disaster if it’s maliciously hacked, where sending beams of energy at random directions would potentially fry non-compatible electronics or even start fires.

Exactly!!:iagree:
For every normal use,there’s also an ABUSE opportunity…:bigsmile:

I think this story is amazing!

I wonder what it does to your brain though. :bigsmile:

Hey Wombler , Maybe you can be the first to try it . :wink:
But I doubt it .
Just hold your cell on the opposite side of your head with the wireless charger on the other side.

I liked olyteddy’s Tesla comment.
For those that don’t know Tesla proposed wireless transmission of “High Voltage” current across distances . He said he had this worked out.
Also he was supposed to have a “Death Ray” built on the same principal for shooting down enemy air craft .
If you have heard about the USS Eldridge of the movie Philadelphia Experiment & disclaimed by the US Navy . Tesla coils were supposedly what were used in the experiment.

I think I’ve had my brain fried enough recently. :bigsmile:

I’ve heard the Tesla story before and about USS Eldridge. Good stories but I think they’re stretching the truth more than a bit. :wink:
