Nokia has found a way to recharge your cell phone using radio waves. Learn more about their new technology here
Nokia is a Finnish communications and information technology corporation. They do business worldwide and are known for their internet services and cell phones. More recently, they have been working on a more environmentally friendly way to charge cellphones without wasting unnecessary electricity.
Nokia claims that it has created the technology to charge a cell phone using radio waves while that same cell phone is on standby mode. Standby mode is when electronics devices are not in use, but are still on. Similar to when computers hibernate. Even though the phone is not in use, it is still giving off radio waves. The same goes for televisions and computers.
The radio waves that a device gives off are very weak and small and do not hold much power. Nokia has developed the technology to gather all radio waves from miles away and from several devices. The more devices in a larger area means more power. The more power it has, the easier it would be able to charge a phone. This new technology suggests that when their phone is on standby mode, the phone will automatically charge without even being plugged in!
