WattUp is an incredible wireless charging technology that is capable of transmitting power to mobile devices using the same radio bands as WiFi routers, without the use of cables or even charging mats. The technology was developed by California-based Energous, and is set to be incorporated into a range of household appliances from China-based Haier.

Energous and Haier signed a joint development agreement that will see the two companies working together to install WattUp technology in household appliances. These appliances can then be used to wirelessly charged people's mobile devices as they move about their home.

Devices equipped with the WattUp wireless charging technology can transmit 4 Watts of power over a radius of 4.5 meters.
