“At Delight, we remain committed to innovation in the hearing sector and constantly challenge the status quo with our products. Today we are introducing the world’s first hearable utilizing Energous’ RF-based WattUp wireless charging to Amazon customers in the U.S., which is a key market for our product,” said Jae Ho Kim, president and CEO of Delight.
The Delight Oasis-RC PSAP features Energous’ WattUp wireless charging technology. With WattUp, users simply place the PSAP on the included charging pad to charge the device, so they no longer have to fiddle with and replace its batteries. The Oasis-RC PSAP amplifies environmental sound for users who experience difficulty hearing in certain environments, such as in the home, workplace, the outdoors or at social events.
“Having a product that features our WattUp technology launch on Amazon is a significant step forward in the launch of Wireless Charging 2.0,” said Stephen R. Rizzone, president and CEO of Energous Corporation. “We see our RF-based WattUp wireless charging technology not only replacing coil-based charging where it’s currently being used, but it will also revolutionize consumer electronics product applications where first generation, coil-based charging has not been widely adopted due to its many limitations.”
“We are excited to see that the wirelessly charged Oasis-RC PSAP is now available in the U.S. market via Amazon. This is truly a next generation product that we believe solves the major pain point hearing aid and PSAP users have historically experienced, which is frequent battery replacement,” said Dooroo Lim, manager at SK Telesys.
