Without the burden of physical power cables, wireless power technologies using magnetic coupling transfer power from a few milliwatts to hundreds of kilowatts with transfer distances from a few millimeters to hundreds of millimeters. It makes our lives certainly more convenient, comfortable and productive than any previous generation. In the future, wireless power technologies would be completely integrated into our daily life supplying power to our personal electronic devices, wearable/implantable electronics, home appliances and electric vehicles.
