Definition

Wireless energy transfer or wireless power is the transmission of electrical energy from a power source to an electrical load without interconnecting wires. Wireless transmission is useful in cases where interconnecting wires are inconvenient, hazardous, or impossible. The most common form of wireless power transmission is carried out using direct induction followed by resonant magnetic induction (source: Wikipedia - Wireless Energy Transfer).
