Engineers for quite some time trying to create such a charger that will allow people to once and for all get rid of the wires and the constant need to be near an outlet. Given how much in our lives all kinds of gadgets and electronic devices, we somehow have to regularly recharge them in order to stay updated on the latest news, and not part with your favorite music. New battery charger WattUp developed under the startup Energous that allows you to recharge through the air several gadgets at a distance of over 4 meters.

Also need support devices standard charging Wireless Charging 2.0. To date, the maximum radius of the charger reaches 4.5 meters (the most effectively it works at a distance up to 1 meter). It is not excluded that Energous will eventually be able to improve this figure. The Archos will demonstrate the consumer electronics show, CES 2018, which will begin January 9, 2018.
