WiTricity, A Tech Company Developing Wireless Electricity


WiTricity is a Massachusetts-based technology company that is developing a wireless electricity system for charging and powering electrical devices that are up to several meters away—anything from smartphones to electric cars (video).

Imagine a future in which wireless electricity makes everyday products more convenient, reliable, and environmentally friendly. Cell phones, game controllers, laptop computers, mobile robots, even electric vehicles capable of re-charging themselves without ever being plugged in. Flat screen TV’s and digital picture frames that hang on the wall—without requiring a wire and plug for power. Industrial systems and medical devices made more reliable by eliminating trouble prone wiring and replaceable batteries. WiTricity Corp. is working to make this future a reality, developing wireless electricity technology that will operate safely and efficiently over distances ranging from centimeters to several meters—and will deliver power ranging from milliwatts to kilowatts.
