WattUp Wire-Free Charging Technology Is What We All Need

wattupEnergous Corporation, or Energous for short, is the one behind WattUp. Got to love the wordplay on this for sure, as WattUp is best described to be a disruptive wire-free charging technology catering for electronic devices, where it will provide power from a distance with complete mobility under full software control. There are invite-only, wireless charging demonstrations that are being held during this year’s edition of CES, so if you haven’t quite done so, you might want to check them out.

The patent-pending WattUp solution will be offered in a couple of representations of future home environments over at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. You will be able to enjoy Registered guests will experience unleashed wire-free charging in the two story apartment suites and see a demonstration of various electronic devices employing the WattUp technology, which has been integrated seamlessly into a common residential setting, providing the ability to charge a multitude of devices free of any wired connection or charging pad.

WattUp delivers intelligent, scalable power via the same radio bands as a Wi-Fi router. It differs from current wireless charging systems in that it delivers meaningful, usable power at a distance, allowing users to roam freely while charging. The technology has also been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home, Portable Power and Embedded Technologies categories.

Stephen R. Rizzone, CEO of Energous Corporation, “As a leading company in the development of true wire-free, uncoupled power with complete mobility, Energous is proud to be demonstrating our technology in model homes of the future. This event at CES 2015 marks a significant achievement for Energous and the industry in showing how wire-free charging can be deployed in everyday living environments. We believe we are the only CES exhibitor to be demonstrating true wire-free charging technology that lets users roam while their devices charge.”
