rf charger

I have done several projects in this area. The efficiency is dismal, especially if the source of RF runs all of the time. The only reason we used this method was because they were medical implants with just a few cm or inches distance.

You are much better off using wired computer peripherals and batteries charged in a wall plug in unit.

I am reminded of a colourful express from one of my friends, "burn the house down to cook dinner."
