THE RISE OF WIRELESS POWER

February 24th 2022

10:00AM – 11:00AM ET

Today’s wireless power technologies are failing to deliver what consumers are looking for when we talk about wireless charging.

The most important characteristics for a wireless charging experience are the ability to be able to charge multiple devices of different kinds at the same time and at a distance. A consumer may have a laptop, a mobile phone, and a smartwatch, and they want all of them to be charged simultaneously with true spatial freedom.

Next generation technologies like AirFuel RF and AirFuel Resonant, enabled by emerging research, semiconductor advances, technical standards and regulatory guidance, are finally giving consumers the experience they want and need.

In this webinar, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, President of AirFuel Alliance, will be joined by Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous, to discuss the progress we have made and the opportunities for innovation to achieve our shared dream of a world where we can power up without plugging in.
