Abstract
Agiltron proposes to fabricate a new type of portable inductively wireless battery charger station to relieve the logistic footprint and operation complexity of the wired power connection for charging battery-operated devices in the battlefield management. The wireless battery charger station will allow power transfers greater than 5 meters from the charging source with efficiency more than 50%. Multiple receivers can simultaneously draw up to 81 W each, total system with potential power of 800 W for 10 or more receivers. The wireless battery charger stations are compact with a small portable footprint, with a maximum length less than 0.6m. Power can transfer through many common materials like tent canvas and plywood. The system is low cost, robust and easy to maintenance.
