2021-03-30 Energy-harvesting replaces batteries in wireless devices

1) Apparently, a replacement for batteries has been developed, a card that utilizes 5G EMF energy in the environment to power wireless devices. I do not understand it and so asked for information from others. Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy and Libby Kelley provided some info links. (See letters for both).

Energy-harvesting card treats 5G networks as wireless power grid

“A team from Georgia Tech has just announced a world-first: a 3D-printed rectifying antenna the size of a playing card that can harvest electromagnetic energy from 5G signals and use it to power devices, turning 5G networks into wireless power grids….

But 5G communications offer a whole new opportunity. “5G has been designed for blazing fast and low-latency communications,” reads the Georgia Tech team’s latest study, published in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports. “To do so, mm-wave frequencies were adopted and allowed unprecedently high radiated power densities by the FCC. Unknowingly, the architects of 5G have, thereby, created a wireless power grid capable of powering devices at ranges far exceeding the capabilities of any existing technologies.“”


2) Last Monday, Dr. Anthony Miller and Dr. John Frank had a webinar that many of us might have missed. Fortunately, a recording is available. Not to be missed.

“In case you missed our Facebook Live event on Monday, Dr. Devra Davis interviewed two powerhouse scientists, Drs. John W. Frank and Anthony B. Miller, about the science of radiofrequency radiation (RF-EMF), the epidemiological evidence for effects, and the precise technology that should be included in studies on the impacts of 5G….

“The direction of our ignorance is always consistent. It’s always in the false negative direction, meaning we’re falsely reassured by the fact that there’s no evidence (of illness from 5G),” said Frank. “The truth is you wouldn’t expect to see any tumors yet … the longer the exposure has been around … the more and more evidence has accumulated that there’s a problem, particularly for delayed effects like cancers.””

3) It is inevitable that plants are affected by EMF because they are living things. A member sent me this slide show from 2018. The effects will be so much greater from 5G microcells everywhere and the satellites’ radiation covering virtually every inch of the earth.

Hi Sharon,

As far as I can see this is a device using a Rotman Lens (a bit like multiple phased array antennas on steroids) to suck in 5G energy from all directions to give free electricity to its users.

I suspect the 5G operators will not be too happy with this since they will have to ramp up their power to compensate and that’s bad news for all of us.

But if you use it to power your 5G phone, it will reduce the signal available to the phone and make it boost its output power to compensate. So the user will be zapped as never before.

This will not be helped by the fact that the pinna of the outer ear is perfectly designed to capture mm microwaves from many directions and channel them down the ear canal, which will act as a waveguide at these frequencies. When it reaches the inner ear it may cause tinnitus, symptoms of motion sickness (including nausea) and, if you are unlucky, acoustic neuroma and brain cancer. Perhaps it’s not such a clever idea as the inventors claim.

Best wishes

Wireless Power transfer is going to be instrumentally involved in 5G and 6G deployment. The (missing word) circulated a proposed rule last fall that included use of wireless power transfer, a new ELF source, that would be used to power wireless devices. FCC proposed a to use a thermal based-safety threshold to regulate this transmission. Wireless power transfer will enable charging of wireless devices with[out] the need for batteries. It will be used to charge and activate the sensors to be used for the Internet of Things.

Nels Kuster published a paper proposing a Wireless Power Transfer compliance testing methodology at 6.78 MHz in 2015 in IEEE’s Transactions on Power Electronics.
