Phone case converts RF signals into DC power


Our phones emit large amounts of energy in the form of RF signals like WiFi, 4G, 3G and Bluetooth. When a phone is transmitting, only a small fraction of the phone’s signal actually reaches the receiver (Cell tower, WiFi router), while the majority of the signal is wasted to the air.

Nikola Technology efficiently converts RF signals like W-Fi, Bluetooth, and LTE into DC power using its proprietary energy harvesting circuit. The result is usable energy that can provide power to mobile devices wirelessly. The case gives users battery life extension and also sleek protection.
