Wireless power uses near-field magnetic induction to transfer power from a charging base station to a portable device (an alternate technology from Fujitsu uses magnetic resonance). With magnetic induction, a transmitter coil in the charging pad sends power over distances of a few centimeters to a receiver coil embedded in the device. In the charging base station, a power conversion unit converts electrical power to a wireless power signal. At the receiver, the power pickup unit converts the wireless power signal back to electrical power to charge the device’s battery. The transmitter and receiver communicate with each other to control the charging process. A base station can have more than one transmitter to charge more than one device.
