The internet has been swamped by news that we have a new kind of free electricity, nano-crystal technology, and that we will be able to recharge electric batteries any place all the time.  You could recharge your electric care battery anywhere!

The claim is that WattUp Mid Field transmitter refills batteries from 3 feet away. This technology involves the transmission of energy without wires or cables from a power source to a consuming device. It comprises a charging station (or transmitter) that transmits the energy, and a receiver (integrated inside a device) that receives the energy and charges the battery.  Allied Market Research

This technology is not exactly the same as Nikola Tesla's free energy system, although Tesla may have been messing around with it in the early1900s. Instead of three feet, Tesla was able to get electricity long distances from the air to drive his electric motor care for many miles in the Buffalo, New York area, for several weeks.  These are two different types of free electricity transmission. 

Length = 1.5 mns.

Tarantola: FCC approves wireless charging

FCC approved a first wireless 'power-at-a-distance' charging system. San Jose-based startup, Energous, announced on February 20, 2018, that it has received the first such FCC certification for power-at-a-distance wireless charging with its WattUp Mid Field transmitter. The transmitter converts electricity into radio frequencies, then beams the energy to nearby devices outfitted with a corresponding receiver. This differs from the resonant induction method that the Pi wireless charging system relies upon and offers a greater range than the Belkin and Mophie chargers that require physical contact with the device. Tarantola: FCC permission

Common Sense summary: Although nano-crystal technology may be real, its application is uncertain and different from the wireless transmitter box.  There is a lot of hype among marketers trying to sell a booklet about nano-crystal technology and investing in supposedly wireless charging of electrical equipment.  Johnson: Nanocrystal technology hype 2018 One of these marketers is Michael Robinson who makes wild unsubstantiated claims about the profit to be made by prospective investors in his Nova-X Report titled Nano-Crystal Electricity. He keeps the technology secret in his report. Although this wireless technology has been approved by FCC, it will not be available to the general public for at least another year, if then!  This observation does not conclude that wireless recharging of batteries will not happen. Apple and other companies selling electronic gadgets have not bought, as yet, into this wireless technology in a complete fashion.  So there are a lot of pitfalls to be cleared. 

Furthermore, What the FCC just approved with the operation of the transmitter really doesn’t indicate an endorsement of the effectiveness, usability or efficiency of the transmission box device. Home - person safety is not mentioned.  Even if this new wireless technology worked and you used many transmitter boxes in the house [one for the refrigerator, one for each lamp, the computer, the cell-phone and so on], you could end up microwaving your house.  If this were to happen, you would have a real health issue and this is not even mentioned in the hype reports, media nor the FCC.
