WattUp: FCC OKs ‘Power At A Distance’ Charging



It’s a scene too many of us have witnessed, and personally experienced: Your tablet, smartphone or laptop computer battery is about to die. Frantically, you look around the airport terminal for a charging station. Half are in use; the other half are broken.

Never fear: You have a plug adapter. But, where is there a plug? Why are their no plugs at the Sky Harbor Airport baggage claim?! Why does this brand new food court at Miami International Airport have no outlets?!

New technology will soon allow you to charge your devices without the need for a connection. You can thank the FCC for giving the green light to an advance that could effectively boost consumption of your radio or TV stations via a hand-held device.
