ShareWatts is a start-up technology company in the TechLaunch Accelerator developing a technology that will enable the wireless transfer of electricity between mobile devices, including cell phones, laptops, and tablets.
What this means is that the next time you are out and your cell phone is running out of power, you will be able to wirelessly transfer power from your laptop or tablet to your cell phone. Or if you don’t have another device with you, you can transfer power from someone else’s mobile device to your cell phone, provided they also have our hardware and agree to the transfer.
Our hardware will allow you to share battery charge wirelessly between mobile devices, while our social application will help you find individuals willing to share battery charge.
At ShareWatts, our mission statement and life mantra are simple: Take Charge.
Dayo is our CEO.
He received his Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering and Master of Business Administration from Washington University in St. Louis. He has worked in fixed income asset management and for several start-up media & entertainment companies.
Keith is our Chief Engineer.
He received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the College of New Jersey, and his MS and Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from John Hopkins University. He has spent the last five years studying photonics, including ultrafast and nonlinear, and has published material on Time Lens and Demultiplexing, Coherent Communications, and Signal Conditioning and Measurement.
Sameer is our Founder and Chief Technology Officer.
He is a Serbian-born and later naturalized American inventor,electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Well, not exactly, but he is the biggest Tesla fan we know.
Using the patented ShareWatts technology, the wireless proof of concept shows power being drawn from the displayed iPad and delivered to the attached function phone wirelessly. But isn’t that a lot of wires for a wireless solution?
Please note that the power transfer is occurring between the inductor coil shown lying on the yellow mat and an identical one below it. The yellow mat is there to show that no contact is necessary between the phones or coils in order for the transfer to occur. The components you currently see allow for expedient engineering of the proof of concept, but will be miniaturized pre-production as with all electronics.
Using the patented ShareWatts technology, the wired proof of concept shows power being drawn from the audio port of the attached Samsung Galaxy phone and delivered through the micro-USB of the attached function phone.
With our wired solution, ShareWatts enables users to share battery power, effectively charging each others’ phones in times of need.
Again using the patented ShareWatts technology, the wired proof of concept shows power being drawn from the audio port of a donor device and delivered through the micro-USB of the attached function phone.
Only this time the donor device isn’t another cell phone, but a Kindle eReader!
With our wired solution, ShareWatts enables users to draw battery power from virtually any device with an audio port and use it to charge another device.
