Charge your mobile phone through the air!

In this day and age, you’d expect battery life to have increased over the years, however it seems to have done the opposite. With the amount of applications been powered by your phone (which isn’t just a phone anymore) it can be a camera, video player, ipod, browser and/or games machine, this takes up plenty of battery throughout the day.

Luckily a Phones 4 U salesman convinced me to buy a Samsung Pixon about 8 months ago boasting about its long battery life. And certainly it does last for a couple of days…if I make no calls, texts, or touch it in the slightest. One word; fail.

I digress.

With the iPhone, battery power is still poor, especially if you have your ipod collection on it and want to use it for all the applications that it advertises. Which you obviously do, otherwise you’d just buy a simple phone.

Many times over the last week, i’ve been out and about on my travels, sending emails and browsing the web as I go. My battery will have drained by the end of the day, normally just at the time I need to make a call or text.

This got me thinking, what if you could charge your mobile phone through the air? Surely someone will have thought about a way to do this. And yes. I was right!


A startup company called Powercast, along with the more than 100 companies that have inked agreements with it, is about to start finding out. Powercast and its first major partner, electronics giant Philips, are set to launch their first device powered by electricity broadcast through the air,”

Once, this has been established, it will be able to charge cell phones, MP3 players, automotive parts, temperature sensors, hearing aids, and medical implants. Imagine that! Anywhere you go, you can do whatever you want as you will never lose battery. Powercast eventually want to expand this to laptops once they have developed their product enough, but for now the futures looking bright. Well brighter at least.
