WhatUpp Wireless Charger, With Range Of Three Feet, Gets FCC Approval

It can provide a charge to WattUp-enabled electronic devices at a distance of up to three feet.
It's been a while since we last heard anything about Energous.
The first wireless charging system - capable of powering devices from a distance of several feet - has gained regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). "The FCC certification of Energous' power-at-a-distance wireless charging transmitter is a major market milestone", said Rizzone in a statement. This would be a significant improvement over the wireless smartphone chargers now available, which require that the handset is in direct contact with the unit - typically a circular pad - making them only slightly more convenient than a wired charger. An affordable wireless-charging option is an attractive proposition for makers of mass-market cell phones.
There's no actual product at the moment, and Energous has only just received FCC approval.
Energous will be displaying WattUP next month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which runs from January 9 to 12.
Wireless charging devices are already available, but have to be in direct contact with the phone or other device they are recharging.
What is, however, exciting is the advent of true room-scale wireless charging, where merely being within 15 feet of the transmitter means your device can start soaking up electrons. It opens up options, outside of just contact-based charging, to Wireless Charging 2.0: an ecosystem where devices can be charged both, via pad and at a distance. You wouldn't need to "plug" anything into the device, but because you still need to hold it in a fixed location, the degree of additional convenience it offers isn't that significant.
People would take advantage of the interoperability and use WhattUp devices the same way they use WiFi. The WattUp power receiver is just 3mm square, Energous says, so can be fitted to nearly any device.
Energous' power-at-a-distance system boasts a greater distance than Pi and is still able to charge multiple devices at once.
