StartEngine FAQ

Q: Do you have any demos we can see of the product actually working? What is the total range and power transmission?

A: Please visit for info about WiGL Demos 1-4.

WiGL recently repeated demo #3 of our transmitter network at Synapse in Tampa, FL. There are also a couple TV and media videos on this page (e.g. Kathy Ireland show or FIU News).

The WiGL team is currently in the planning phase of very specific applications/devices for Demo #4 to meet Department of Defense end user requests.

Q: Is this the same as Energous technology?

A: No – WiGL is currently working with Energous and we consider them a close teammate, even though others may consider them our competitor. Our competi-mates’ business models appear to be making and selling a single transmitter (Tx) paired to one or more receivers (Rx) in an engineering developer kit (DevKits) for other companies build or test.

WiGL is currently working with these companies to build commercial -off-the-shelf (COTS) capabilities to fast track Tx-to-Tx-to-Tx-to-Tx “Networks” of touchless Wireless Power Transfer (tWPT). Meaning rather than a single COTS Tx-to-Rx pair that gets you maybe 3-10 ft of distance, WiGL’s patented technologies are based on connecting COTS Tx’s in an attempt to gain near infinite distance on our tWPT networks. I.e…”want more distance, add another WiGL-enabled Tx”.

We also hold patents that make additional advances in how the WPT industry can smartly use and control tWPT Tx’s.

WiGL is all about gaining tWPT distance by growing the Wireless electrical Grid of Local Area Networks (it’s in the name; “WiGL”).

In short, Energous and others have been pioneers to get more and more power/distance from their “single Tx” to the Rx’s as part of their DevKits. Whereas WiGL is leveraging advances in all available COTS WPT to build tWPT networks of wireless power….to meet end user needs.

In WiGL’s business model, we build specific applications of tWPT for the military and commercial end-users. We don’t currently have nor sell a DevKit.


Q: What is the effect of wireless electrical transmission on human tissue?

A: The FCC limits public exposure of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for devices. For example, Wireless Phones and Devices have a SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

For specific SAR info please visit the FCC Web Site:

WiGL recently published a paper promoting our suggestions for FCC oversight and the future of touchless Wireless Power Transfer (tWPT).


Q: How much wattage is WiGL capable of transmitting?

A: WiGL has demonstrated 2.4GHz at 1W. 

Most recently, we purchased and networked some COTS transmitters that put out 3W in the lower band. And one of our competi-mates has a 5W COTS transmitter.

WiGL’s Demo #4 is building a network of COTS (slightly WiGL enabled) and WiGL in-house transmitters tuned to 850-950MHz and 2.4GHz…all at 1W.

Q: When are products expected to hit the shelves?

A: As soon as WiGL is formally files our awarded, funded and executed Department of Defense (DoD) contract with the SEC…we will have a deliverables plan with dates and will be in a better position to answer when Military and Civilian WiGL capabilities will be ready. The proposed applications of WiGL for DoD devices have a direct correlation to commercial devices.

Q: The overview of your invention does not address the most important concerns of wireless energy transmission. Transmitting large amounts of power wirelessly is easy. It is a totally different thing when you claim to power refrigerators and TVs. Nobody wants to live near power towers. Yet you are proposing power transmitters all over the city?

A1. WiGL does NOT claim: “to power refrigerators and TV”. WiGL is proposing exactly the opposite. WiGL envisions using refrigerators and TVs (etc) as “transmitters” on the WiGL Network to recharge smaller devices’ receivers. Meaning, higher power devices that are plugged into the wall (the AC Grid)… can be repurposed to send/ transmit wireless power to smaller mobile devices. This is similar to how IoT is changing how we now add WiFi to toasters, microwaves, TVs, washers, garage doors, etc (stuff on the Grid). WiGL isn’t planning to power large high power devices…we are seeking to leverage grid-connected devices to build the touchless wireless transmitter network(s) of tomorrow.

A2. WiGL isn’t exactly “proposing power transmitters all over the city”. WiGL envisions repurposing existing electrical grid infrastructure that already radiates power; how many electrical sources are already in your City (that provide no IoT electrical power value to the end user)? WiGL hopes to marry our growing need for IoT technologies to existing systems on the power grid…by making your city’s electrical infrastructure smarter. WiGL wants to make existing products that already radiate energy…more effective/efficient for our 21st century IoT needs.

A3. So far our COTS and in-house demos have not “increased that power by orders of magnitude … to wirelessly transmit.” To date, WiGL and our partners have used 850-950 MHz (radio) or 2.4GHz (WiFi) at 1W. Well within FCC limits for radio/cellphone/WiFi transmissions. Some of our competi-mates who provided the WiGL-enabled COTS transmitters also sell transmitters radiating at 3-5W. Each of these COTS providers has FCC approvals. And there is growing science behind using 5G as the wireless energy source. 


Q: From the last round raised, what did the company do with the funds? Are there actual commercial products made that’s not a prototype. I only see the budget prototype of the product, which look a lot like high schoolers made them.

A1. The funds from the first round were used to move from prototypes to MVPs…and secure revenue generating contracts. Yes, our manufacturing partners and competi-mates have completed “some” of those MVPs and provided the transmitters and receiver products we mentioned in the Reg CF. There is a picture of one new MVP transmitter (product) on the page above. WiGL elected not to share images of the network or newest modifications to the WiGL or WiGL-enabled MVP receivers until we seek additional patents to protect new discoveries.

Many “products” make up a Wireless electrical grid of local area networks (WiGL). Meaning, some of the products used to make that full network are being provided by our competi-mates. And as we’ve shared, some of those products already exist. You or I can order these products online today.

The prototypes WiGL is demo’ing are truly prototypes. Yes they could look better, but they are not the MVPs. These are simply demo’ing that the tech works!

And at our demos, engineers want to see the internal subsystems and parts. They do not trust a closed pretty container is sending wireless power across the networks we propose…unless they see the boards and wiring for themselves. So sadly, the demo kits are not “Best buy or Walmart” quality.

Publishing in Scientific Reports has been both a gift and a curse. The article helped the engineering community to finally understood what WiGL was doing, but it also explained WiGL to other businesses who wanted to get into the wireless power space. Overnight, the whole far-field industry shifted to talking about “networking”.

So the images and demos you see on our websites are the older/known prototypes that we are comfortable sharing. Once we complete the network and patent the individual products for DoD (read as stuff from the Reg CF), we will be ready to share those approved images. But we have a responsibility to protect shareholder’s equity and WiGL’s trade secrets from competitors’ … we’re trying not to share too much too soon.

Wireless Charging vs. Wired Charging: Which One is Better?

In the last few years, wireless charging has become more and more popular. It’s quickly entering the public consciousness as the way of the future much like WIFI and Bluetooth before it. However, many business owners and consumers still have their doubts about whether a world powered entirely by wireless charging is where we’re heading or if it’s just a passing fad.


Here we lay out why we believe wireless charging will eventually take over from wired charging.


Wireless Charging: The Advantages


You’ll never have to fiddle with cords or cables again

We can all relate to the nuisance of having to fiddle around with charging cables whenever we must plug our devices in. They get tangled up, they’re too short, and they often break with surprising speed. Whenever you head out, you must remember to carry both a cable and a USB converter port, not to mention the difficulty of then finding an outlet to plug them into. All small things, but they add up to a lot of wasted time that could be better used elsewhere.


With wireless charging, all of that becomes a thing of the past. Just drop your device down on the charging pad and get on with the rest of your day. The advantages become even greater with far-field wireless charging. Once it becomes more common in homes and businesses, you’ll be able to charge your device seamlessly from anywhere while still using it.


Your device won’t suffer as much wear and tear

Constantly plugging our devices in and out is well known to cause a lot of wear and tear. A lot of times, the charging port is the first thing to fail in a device, requiring either a trip to the repair shop (assuming that’s possible) or a full replacement.


With wireless charging, that’s no longer an issue. Since your device can now charge without the need for being plugged into anything you can expect its lifespan to increase dramatically. As an added bonus, the lack of any charging port also makes designing entirely waterproof and dustproof devices even easier.


You can charge multiple devices at once

Anyone who owns several different devices (laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.) knows the difficulties of keeping them all charged at once. Each device usually requires its own separate cable and converter port that must all be carried with you when on the move. It’s even more of a nuisance when you’re at work or a public place where there’s a waiting line of people who also want to charge their devices.


Wireless charging immediately removes many of these difficulties. In the case of a charging pad, that’s all you’ll need to carry when you’re out and about. So long as all your devices comply with the Qi wireless charging standard, a single charging pad can be your one-size-fits-all solution. For far-field wireless charging, you won’t even need the pad or an outlet to plug it into. Everyone within range of the network can connect and charge their devices all at once.


It’s far safer for you, your device, and your data

It’s quite rare, but with wired charging, there’s always a small chance that you can get a little electrical shock when plugging or unplugging your device. This is usually due to either a malfunctioning outlet or a damaged charging cable. Wireless charging eliminates this possibility entirely.


Conventionally charging your device in a public place also comes with a few dangers. There’s always a chance someone could steal it when you’re not looking. Then there’s the risk of using a public USB charger, which may be secretly downloading your data. You need never fear any of this again once you switch to wireless charging.


Wireless charging is just so much neater

It’s a minor advantage, but one that shouldn’t be overlooked. Charging cables, especially when there are more than a dozen of them plugged into an outlet extender, can look very unsightly and messy. Plus, there’s often the risk of tripping over them. Most of us like to keep our workstations and homes as clean and orderly as possible, which usually equals a constant battle with cable management.


As you can expect, wireless charging makes this not an issue. Your home and workplace will look far more aesthetically pleasing and you’ll never have to devote time to cable management again.


Wired Charging: The Advantages


It’s faster and more efficient than wireless charging (for now)

It’s a fair criticism that wireless charging technology is not as fast as conventional wired charging. Depending on the brand, wireless charging can take up to twice as long to charge a device from 0% to 100% as a wired connection would. It’s an issue that wireless charging developers are working on overcoming. While progress has been made, it may still be a few years until wireless charging speeds are at a comparable level to wired charging.


There’s no risk of it overheating your device and damaging the battery

There’s an ongoing debate about whether wireless charging can cause your device to overheat to the point that it damages the battery. Electrical wastage is an issue with wireless charging and some of that wastage can be converted to heat. This can reduce the lifespan of your device’s battery if the overheating is severe enough.


However, it’s worth pointing out that the extent of this issue may be related to geographic location. The higher temperature the climate, the less of an issue this tends to be. As with charging speeds, it’s an issue that wireless charging developers are working on.


It’s less expensive and more common to use

Wireless charging pads do cost a bit more than conventional cables. That said, the higher cost of a charging pad may be offset by not having to replace it as regularly as a charging cable. Also, while wireless charging is slowly becoming more common, it’s not nearly as ubiquitous as it needs to be. Until more businesses switch over to providing charging pads or far-field wireless charging for their staff and customers, we won’t see as many people making use of it.


Final Thoughts

As with a lot of things, there are pros and cons to both approaches. Wireless charging is still a relatively new technology (in practice if not in theory), and further work is needed to overcome some of the hurdles with it. But if the speed of the development in this technology over the last decade is anything to go by, we can be confident it will overcome and eventually surpass those challenges. Given another 5-10 years, it may become the standard by which we charge not only our personal devices but every single IoT device out there.

6 Myths About Wireless Charging

Despite becoming increasingly common in consumer devices over the last decade, wireless charging still has a lot of naysayers. As with every technological advance, doubts persist about its effectiveness and safety. So much so that many consumers remain skeptical and averse to making the switch to it. In this article, we aim to separate the fact from the fiction and give you the true lowdown on wireless charging technology. Below are the six most common myths about wireless charging.


Myth 1. Wireless Charging is Slow

It is true that when wireless charging first became a practical reality it was relatively slow and couldn’t match the speeds of a standard USB charging cable. However, significant progress in wireless charging technology has seen their output rise steadily over the last few years. Most computer USB ports supply 5V of electricity with a maximum current of 0.5A. This leads to an overall power output of no more than 2.5 Watts.

When WiGL unveiled its first working prototype of wireless charging in 2018, it had a power supply of 1.4V and an output of 0.5 Watts. Currently, work is being done on a 2022 prototype that will have a power supply of 5V and an output of 1-3 Watts. Given more time, leveraging 5G tech, we can expect wireless charging to surpass its wired counterparts in charging speed.


Myth 2. Wireless Charging Isn’t Completely Wireless

There is a bit of understandable confusion as to what people mean when they say wireless charging. Numerous companies have begun manufacturing and providing what they call “wireless charging stations”. However, detractors have been keen to point out that these devices are not truly wireless. In a way, they’re perfectly correct. Charging stands or mats that require you to place your device down still use wires. The charging stand or matt must still be plugged into an outlet. The wireless part is more to do with your device, which doesn’t need to be plugged into anything when placed down, making the whole thing much more convenient.

WiGL has taken a step beyond this and is seeking to create true wireless charging technology regardless of motion. Working much the same as WIFI or 5G, you can charge your device through a meshed network of transmitters across a dedicated area. No need to place your device down or stop using it while it’s charging.


Myth 3. Wireless Charging is Dangerous

Any new advance in technology raises questions about its safety. In practice, wireless charging is no less safe than traditional wired charging. Strict standards on design and thermal regulation mean that there is no risk of any damage to yourself or your charging device. Both WiGL’s partners and its charging transmitters have met FCC and UL certification standards for WIFI. This makes it just as safe as using regular WIFI.


Myth 4. Wireless Charging is Bad for Your Phone Battery

Persistent rumors continue cropping up that wireless charging isn’t good for your phone battery and may be causing irreparable damage to it. The truth of the matter is that wireless charging might actually be far better for your phone’s battery health than standard charging. For a start, it means no more wear-and-tear on your device from constantly plugging it in and out. Then there’s the fact that smartphone batteries today are much better off when “topped up” as needed, instead of being plugged in at 0% until they reach 100%. There’s also no fear of damage from overcharging.


Myth 5. Most Devices Aren’t Compatible for Wireless Charging

Since wireless charging first arrived on the scene there has been a move by developers to find a standard for it. This is the Qi standard and it’s found in most devices today. However, older devices, even when Qi-enabled, can’t be wirelessly charged because they don’t have a built-in receiver. Fortunately, this can be easily rectified by attaching a third-party receiver to the back of your device. As wireless charging becomes more prevalent, built-in receivers will become as standard a feature as WIFI or Bluetooth. In fact, it’s already found in 80% of smartphones sold on the market today.


Myth 6.  Wireless Charging will Only Get Displaced by a New Technology

With the speed of technological advancement over the last few decades, this is an understandable concern. Almost every new gizmo gets denounced as a passing fad that will either fail to be widely adopted or get replaced for a newer more efficient technology. But we contend that this is a fear you need not have for wireless charging. Apple was one of the first proponents of its use and development. Since they began implementing Qi compatibility on all their devices, the odds of wireless charging being nothing more than a fad have dropped to almost zero. Whatever its detractors have to say, wireless charging is clearly here to stay and will only get more popular with each passing year.


Final Thoughts

As should be plain from above, the many myths tied to wireless charging have little truth to them. As more developers and consumers get on board with this technology, the use of traditional charging cables may disappear entirely. Gone will be the days of messy piles of cables in office corners and gone will be the need to ever plug your device into a charging cable again.

How Does Wireless Charging Work?

In the last few years, wireless charging has seen huge leaps in development and application. Yet many people are still unaware that this kind of technology even exist, much less how it actually works. Even more would be surprised to know that it’s existed for about 100 years when electricity pioneer Nicola Tesla demonstrated magnetic resonant coupling, which is the transmission of electricity through the air by creating a magnetic field between two circuits. Unfortunately, for most of that time, it was a technology with very few practical applications beyond a few electric toothbrush models.


But that’s all changing now. Recent inroads in development have opened up a vast array of applications for this technology in areas such as healthcare, automotive, manufacturing, retail, and private use. All geared towards removing the need for cables to everything from smartphones and laptops to kitchen appliances and cars.


Below, we explain what wireless charging is, how it works, and everything else you need to know about it.


How Wireless Charging Works

Wireless charging comes in three main types. These are radio, inductive, and resonance.


Radio Charging

This type works best on devices that have small batteries and utilize very little power. For instance, wireless keyboards, mice, smartphones, hearing aids, watches, and certain medical devices. Most of these devices already use radio waves to send and receive wireless signals, making it easy to adapt them for wireless charging. It works by using a transmitter that is connected to a socket to generate radio waves. So long as the receiver is configured to the same frequency as the radio transmitter you can charge the device’s battery.


Inductive Charging

Inductive charging is typically used on medium-sized devices, such as tablets, MP3 players, and larger smartphones. It functions by using an adaptor that contains contact points attached to the back of the device. When a device requires charging, you simply have to place it on a wireless or conductive charging pad that is plugged into an electrical socket. Not exactly 100% wireless, but it does cut down on the number of wires typically needed.


Resonance Charging

Vastly different from the previous two types, resonance charging can be used on devices that require significant amounts of power. This includes things like desktop computers, electric cars, vacuum cleaners, and even robots. It works by using a copper wire that is attached to the device which is also attached to another copper wire connected to a power source. When both coils are configured to the same electromagnetic frequency, the device can be charged.


It’s worth noting that both inductive and resonance charging operate on the same principles of physics, a time-varying magnetic field that induces a current in a closed loop of wire. A slight downside to resonance charging is that its working distance depends on the size of the coil. Larger coils can increase the distance but are still within limits.


Some Background on Wireless Charging

While Nicola Tesla is often cited as the pioneer of wireless charging, the principles of it actually go back to the 1800s when Michael Faraday discovered the concept of magnetic induction. He found that when a circuit has a current being transmitted through it, it generates a current in another nearby circuit. This works through the S magnetic field of the transmitter which then moves through the air to generate a current in the copper wire of the receiver. Thus, charging the device.


It’s for safety reasons that the current must be converted from an electrical to a magnetic one. If it wasn’t converted, there would be a risk of an electrical shock for anyone standing close by. No such risk exists for magnetic induction. It wasn’t until the use of advanced mobile phones exploded in the mid-2000s that a use for magnetic induction was found. Previously, phones in the 1990s could last a long time on one charge due to how simple they were. With the rise of smartphones, their higher power usage has necessitated the need for easier charging, which explains why wireless charging has gone through such a huge revolution in the last two decades.


More work still needs to be done but already we’re seeing a lot of industries incorporating this technology, including law enforcement, security, and hospitality. As consumers get used to the concept and more advances are made, we’re likely to see huge changes in the years ahead.


Where WiGL Comes In

Working at the forefront of this exciting technology is WiGL (pronounced “wiggle”). Our patented technologies seek to link our competitor’s technologies together into a meshed network of wireless transmitters. It works just like WiFi; you simply pick a wireless power network like you would a WiFi provider. WiGL then converts any wall outlet, vehicle charger, or power source into a smart electric power antenna that transmits power to your device using either WiFi or 5G. By sending power on demand to your devices, you can keep them charged on the go wherever they are needed.


WiGL is seeking to do away with the need for messy cords and wires in the workplace and home. With dozens of applications from drones and medical devices to first responders and military units, wireless charging through WiGL is aiming to change the world.


Final Thoughts

Wireless charging is an industry worth keeping an eye on. While there still remains a number of challenges to overcome, such as increasing charging speed and distance, huge leaps in the last few years indicate that more are just around the corner. Governments, businesses, and private consumers are all sure to see the benefits and demand greater flexibility in the future. Overall, the industry is only just getting started and it will be exciting to see where it takes us in the coming years.
