I agree - the research presented demonstrated power transfer over a very short distance. It shows technical promise, but it is a long way from practical application.

@Taimoor: Yes it will consume some time but surely there are possibilities in the future if the need arises.

@tirlapur: I think the long distance phenomena is very far-fetched. There are several issues involved in using this technology for long distance power transfer. I don't see it evolving from short distance to long distance any time soon.

" true. I think it will take time for this technology to mature. I am sure in future we will be able to use this technology to transmit power for longer distances."

Tirlapur, no doubt about that. It may take some more time to get matured either by improvement in technology or maybe get replaced by a better one.

It will gradually improve over certain versions/years. Just imagine about the transition of mobile phone technology from our old big basic handset to latest Smartphone over a period of 15 years.

@Jacob, true. I think it will take time for this technology to mature. I am sure in future we will be able to use this technology to transmit power for longer distances.

@Carolyn, thanks for the post. This technology will definitely improve the power transfer efficiency. I am curious to know if there is any distance limit and can we use this technology to transmit power for longer distance ?

"Yes technology is improving but not 100% perfect and I feel it will not be at any point since the requirements / needs / wants of the customers / users do rise every time.   "

Nimantha, for any technology, it's not possible for one-shot developments to attain perfection. It will gradually improve over certain versions/years. Just imagine about the transition of mobile phone technology from our old big basic handset to latest Smartphone over a period of 15 years.

"Is this new technology applicable for wireless charging of mobile phones or all mobile devices in general? If it is applicable for all mobile ( moving devices) then EVs are the ideal candidates to use this technology."

Prabhakar, it can be used for charging all devices provided; the equipment has to be equipped with a wifi charging module (controller circuit).

"Do you think its possible ? I feel since there is more draining while using wifi the charging will not make a big impact at all."

Nimantha, very much possible. Recently I had read an article in design news about similar wifi charging technology for an EV, which can be used with in a closed campus.
