About Energous Corporation
Energous Corporation is developing WattUp™, a wire-free charging technology that will transform the way people charge and power their electronic devices at home, in the office, in the car and beyond. WattUp is a revolutionary, patent- and trademark-pending solution that delivers intelligent, scalable power via the same radio bands as a Wi-Fi router. WattUp differs from current wire-free charging systems in that it delivers meaningful, useable power, at a distance, while allowing users to roam while charging. The result is a true wire-free experience that saves users from having to remember to plug in their devices or place them on a mat. Energous will initially license WattUp to the mobile accessory and wearable markets, with an eye toward expanding to other markets over time. For more information, please visit www.energous.com.
