Building next-generation, wireless-charging technology to improve human health and address climate change.

As the planet becomes increasingly electrified, there’s an urgent need for next-generation technology to power all of our devices quickly and safely. But today, most wireless charging is slow, inefficient, and expensive.

Grayson Zulauf and his team at Resonant Link are building the wireless chargers of the future. The first application? Improving human health. Their technology allows devices such as pacemakers, insulin pumps, and implantable defibrillators to be charged wirelessly, eliminating the need for invasive, battery-replacement surgeries. Resonant Link’s chargers offer five times higher performance than conventional wireless power for faster charging and greater efficiency, and leverage new semiconductor materials that are significantly less wasteful than silicon, and can be manufactured without copper, lowering costs. Soon, Zulauf hopes, the technology will be charging our electric cars more quickly and efficiently, improving the feasibility of a wide-scale shift to electric vehicles.

“In so many realms, wireless charging offers a way to break free, enabling solutions that are more productive, cleaner, easier to use, and healthier for people and the planet,” Zulauf says.
