@Prabhakar_deosthali you are absolutely any attempt of wireless charging will be going to be a white elephant as the efficiency will be really very very less. In the era of power conservation this will not at all affordable by the society. Only electronics is less power hungry as compared to ACs and Lighting loads, but wireless chargers will cease this advantage of electronics!

In the current context, where energy efficiency is paramount and energy harvesting is the buzz word,  this wireless power transmission with only 9% efficiency  ( at 5 meters)looks to be a white elephant.
