Wireless charging, Isn’t it a cool concept? Well it really is and RCA Airnergy is a device that brings this concept into real life. It is a Wi-Fi powered charging USB device that makes use of the nearby Wi-Fi signals to charge your gadgets.
This Wireless charging concept is not a brand new one, it has been already implemented, but the energy conversion efficiency in those implementations was not sufficient enough to make this concept a reality. But RCA Airnergy is quite a promising one.
Introduced in CES 2010, RCA Airnergy charger charged a BlackBerry from 30% to 100% in about 90 minutes, simply by using the nearby Wi-Fi signals as a sorce of power.

1: Airnergy has a battery inside it, so you can easily carry it around in the Wi-Fi environment, and it’ll charge itself.
2: No need to hunt for electric sockets, RCA Airnergy charges on the go.
3: One thing that’s really exciting is that this USB charger will be available this summer and that too just for $40.
