Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Validates Performance of WattUp Wire-Free Charging From Energous Corporation

Leader in Global Product Safety Testing Confirms Award-Winning Wireless Charging Technology Meets Power Delivery and Transmission Expectations

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/09/15 -- Energous Corporation ("Energous®" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: WATT), the developer of WattUp™, a revolutionary wire-free charging technology for mobile and IoT devices that provides "over-the-air" power at a distance, today announced the results of an industry-first, independent performance evaluation completed by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL). The UL testing, which was conducted at their labs, evaluated the performance of the award-winning WattUp technology and validated receive power at various distances, simultaneous multiple device receive capability as well as mobility.

"We are pleased to have the leading independent testing facility confirm that WattUp exceeded performance expectations for delivering power within various charging ranges," said Stephen R. Rizzone, CEO of Energous. "As the leader in the emerging Uncoupled Power market, we have set the bar and validated the performance of Energous' award-winning WattUp wireless charging solution. These results independently document the rapid progress of our product development efforts that are expected to enable us to release products to the consumer through our licensing partnerships in late 2016, early 2017."


  • 4W delivered within 0-5 feet
  • 2W delivered within 5-10 feet
  • 1W delivered within 10-15 feet


The UL testing conducted in their lab measured the amount of actual power delivered to a device at varying distances from a single WattUp transmitter. The test noted below measures actual power received by a device.


 Distance Power Received at the Receiver
 0-5 feet 5.55W
 5-10 feet 3.74W
 10-15 feet 1.06W


UL tested a single transmitter sending power simultaneously to multiple receivers at a distance of five feet yielding the following results:

 Device  Power
 Receiver 1  5.44W
 Receiver 2  6.66W


UL testing facilities did not have a robotic arm capable of simulating motion. To validate mobility, a single WattUp transmitter located, acquired and transmitted power sequentially in near-real-time to four WattUp receivers spread 30 degrees apart, equidistant at 8.5 feet. Actual power delivered in sequence is as follows:

 Device  Power
 Receiver 1                2.36W  
 Receiver 2                2.02W
 Receiver 3                2.08W
 Receiver 4                2.04W

UL (www.UL.com) is a global independent safety science company with more than a century of expertise in testing and innovating safety solutions. For more information on the results and to view the full downloadable report, please see www.energous.com/report.
