Wireless Technology Everyone Can Use

At Mica Energies, we believe the era of wall chargers and wired charging is over. If our devices are meant to be mobile, then they shouldn’t have to rely solely on wall charging. Our world is going wireless in every facet, so why shouldn’t the way we charge our devices?



Mica Energies is attempting to innovate Radio Frequency (RF) harvesting technology so consumers can be able to wirelessly charge their mobile devices at any time regardless of their geographical location. Our smart wireless power technology can charge batteries through a unique antenna technology that can be adaptable to all electronics which use rechargeable batteries. 


Mica Energies has successfully built a prototype of the Mica RF-Harvesting technology and is pre-revenue.


The Problem


Wired charging is holding back the true potential for mobile devices

Let’s face it, charging your mobile devices is tedious. Wall chargers are easy to misplace, not to mention they take the mobility out of our mobile devices. Even with the advent of magsafe chargers, users still have to put their devices down while they charge.



Unfortunately, despite living in a wireless time, nearly all of our mobile devices require wires for charging. Low battery anxiety dictates the pace at which millions of people live their lives. Rather than focusing on your work or device, many people constantly deal with the worry of a dying battery or a lack of a nearby electrical outlet. 


Most modern day consumers are far too busy to be shackled by a wall charger, and consumer electronic companies need to align their products with that need.

The Solution


Harnessing the power of radio frequency to power your devices

We believe Mica Energies is developing a groundbreaking method to charge your electronic devices from a distance. What was once considered science fiction is now our reality. By using a Far-Field Communications (FFC) approach, our technology can extract radio frequencies from multiple existing sources, even cell towers, in order to charge users’ mobile devices.

*The above image is a stock photo. The Mica Chip and other Mica Energies technologies are in the prototype phase and are not currently available on the market.


To achieve this monumental feat, we created the Mica Chip, a high-performance antenna and rectifying circuit. By tapping into the massive amount of ambient energy in our ether, the Mica Chip can pull from multiple energy sources and passively charge a user’s mobile device. Each Mica Chip can contain a miniaturized circuit using the following system design:


*The product described above is a prototype circuit diagram. The Mica Chip and other Mica Energies technologies are in the prototype phase and are not currently available on the market.


We anticipate that the Mica Chip will be able to work on any device that has a rechargeable battery. With our technology, customers will be able to go about their day without having to worry about the battery life of their electronic devices.


*The above video showcases a prototype of the Mica Chip. The Mica Chip and other Mica Energies technologies are in the prototype phase and are not currently available on the market.


Mica Energies plans to fabricate and sell the Mica Chip, potentially licensing the technology to manufacturers (OEMs) who may be able to integrate it into new technology applications such as next-gen cell phone and laptop models.


*The Mica Chip and other Mica Energies technologies are in the prototype phase and are not currently available on the market.

The Market


The Mica Chip can cross multiple industry verticals

What sets Mica Energies apart from our competitors is the scale at which we plan to execute our product. While there are firms that are developing prototype chargers for Near-Field Charging, we endeavor to take this concept to the highest degree. With the Mica Chip, users can potentially be able to benefit from wireless charging no matter their location. We believe it’s technology built for the open world.



In 2022, the sum for the global smartphone, tablet, and laptop markets is well over half a trillion dollars* - and those are just the three most popular mobile devices on the market. Once adopted, we truly believe Mica Energies has the potential to revolutionize consumer electronics.

Our Traction


Prototype developed and patent pending

While we are in the nascent stage as a company, Mica Energies has successfully built a prototype of our Mica RF-Harvesting Chip, which we believe proves our claim that energy can be harvested at a far greater distance compared to comparable companies. 


We are also in the process of securing a patent for our technology and charging methods. As we grow and receive more funding, we will be able to harness this technology in a more refined manner.


Why Invest


Mica Energies is charged to do the impossible

We believe Mica Energies isn’t just an investment opportunity, it’s a way to disrupt the status quo. We believe we have the tech, team, and tenacity to elevate consumer electronics in a way few companies ever have. 


Join us on our journey to revolutionize charging and invest in Mica Energies today.

MILITARY APPLICATIONS USING PASSIVE WIRELESS CHARGING

MILITARY APPLICATIONS USING PASSIVE WIRELESS CHARGING

Passive RF harvesting without transmitters, using available emf sources to charge devices that require recharging, in the field, air, and ground will one day be an option for the US Military and Government agencies that require stealth in their operations. Mica Energies passive rf harvesting technology could be that solution.

 

August 4, 1945

The Thing, also known as The Great Seal Bug, was a passive covert listening device, developed in the Soviet Union, and planted in the residence of the US Ambassador in Moscow, hidden inside a wooden carving of the Great Seal of the United States. It is called a passive device as it does not have its own power source. Instead, it is activated by a strong electromagnetic signal from outside.

Unknown to the Americans however, the carving contained an RF radio bug of a novel design, in that it did not have its own power source and was not connected via wires. Instead, the device was illuminated by a strong radio signal from the outside, which powered and activated it. It gave the bug an unlimited life and provided the Soviets with the best possible intelligence.

Passive Charging: The Technological Next Step in the Evolution of Wireless Charging

Since energy harvesting circuits are designed to operate with small voltages and currents, they rely on state-of-the-art electrical technology for obtaining high efficiency.

Emf fields are both heterogeneous and homogenous in nature, thus their absolute recommended use as a charging source.

The density of telecom towers, as well as transmission power levels at each tower, varies from region to region.

 Urban and semi-urban regions with higher population densities (and thus often a higher density of towers) have the highest levels of ambient RF energy in the frequencies of interest from 5hz to 10ghz.

The outdoor sources of ELF-EMFs exposure with the greatest spatial coverage are high-voltage overhead power lines, which are used for the transmission and distribution of electricity.

  • Underground cables are also used to deliver electric power.
  • natural electromagnetic fields by the sun): 200 V/m
  • power mains (not close to power lines): 100 V/m
  • power mains (close to power lines): 10,000 V/m
  • electric trains and trams: 300 V/m
  • TV and computer screens: 10 V/m
  • TV and radio transmitters: 6 V/m
  • mobile phone base stations: 6 V/m
  • radars: 9 V/m
  • microwave ovens: 14 V/m

Passive rf harvesting places no burden on the power grid, or any other source. 

If your device fails, you can simply return it for a replacement. 

It is very doubtful that the various telecom providers will have shutdowns to their respective networks, thus keeping an abundant supply of potential wireless energy for the consumer to harvest on their respective devices.

You can move freely without the concern of locating any dedicated transmitters.

No FCC involvement.

Military applications using a passive rf harvesting system is endless.

 Each aircraft, vessel, and field equipment generate an emf field that can be passively harvested.

Drones could stay airborne while passively harvesting energy from the ISM bands from ground to space.

Passive rf harvesting could be used by global agencies that require stealth.

Space suits with batteries and Satellites could also benefit from a passive rf harvesting system especially in space and especially from the “dark” side of planet earth.

All things considered

10 days ago

All things considered

 

Batteries are a particularly important part of our daily lives. They are the only means of reliable energy storage that most of us are accustomed to. 

They give our devices the abilities to operate independently from dedicated power sources.

 Batteries will be with us for quite some time. 

Battery technology is ever changing and will offer better results as more materials are explored that offer better retention, like Graphene. 

 Finite electrical battery life has encouraged us to produce innovative ideas and technologies to drive wireless mobile devices for an infinite period using a passive rf harvesting system.

Transmitters require a dedicated power source and maintenance. 

Installing transmitters in a football stadium with an average size of at least 1 million sq ft would most likely be a few thousand transmitters that need to be positioned and aligned to cover the large surface area. 

Who will pay for that, the ticket holders?

Smart Cities is a goal for the future of civilization.

 Transmitters to charge rechargeable devices is a consideration, but who will pay for that convenience and maintenance?

 You are looking at thousands of transmitters being installed and maintained to trickle charge devices.

 Someone will have to pay for this convenience, and it will not be the city. 

The end user most likely will. 

Let us not forget the POLITICS as well!

Office buildings having dedicated transmitters installed for rechanging rechargeable devices will also have the same considerations as all others. 

How much will it cost per transmitters, how much total power will be consumed, who will maintain the transmitters, how much, and who will pay for it?

 The end user?

It may be too expensive overall for convenience versus just using an inductive charger or simply plug into the grid.

 The choice is for the consumer to make.

Homes that have already been built and wired will have to accommodate any transmitters installed.

Installing transmitters for rf harvesting will no doubt have a cost attached to it and most importantly maintenance costs.

Even as other company’s evaluate internal resources, evaluate the most promising RF harvesting, wireless energy technologies, their adaptability to future planned revenue and market share growth, we agree that caution is the “watchword".

Caution because introducing upheavals in the global product revenue distribution model that's predictable MUST be accompanied with an alternative business model and technology for revenue that is evolutionary, defensible, and scalable for increasing long term stockholder value.

LOOKING BEYOND OUR CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

about 1 month ago

The team at Mica Energies Corporation wants to explain how investors can typically experience a return on investment (ROI).

We have seen that many companies do not concern themselves with the benefit of shareholders once an investment has been made. A return on investment is never guaranteed; however, while Mica Energies Corporation appreciates investment, we believe it should not stop there. The company’s desire is for investors to, at a minimum, receive his/her investment back.

The company cannot make any promises as to future events, especially the creation of implied / explicit expectations. We desire to point out that with any company, there are general ways in which its Board of Directors at their sole discretion, can consider certain actions.

1.  DIVIDENDS

The Mica Energies Series B stock offered by investment through StartEngine, is eligible for future dividends as declared by the Board of Directors at its sole discretion, noting that none are currently planned and no promises of such are extended. Many companies establish dividends once earnings begin, but it is not promised nor obligated unless specifically declared by its Board of Directors, at its sole discretion.

2.  STOCK BUYBACKS

Any company Board of Directors may, at its sole discretion, establish a stock buyback program. Mica Energies has no such plans currently, and none are anticipated.

3.  MERGER & ACQUISITION / BUYOUT

This is a standard business event applicable to any company. Should another firm become interested in Mica Energies and extend an offer to merge with or acquire the company, the Boards of Directors of both companies along with respective shareholders, would vote to either reject or accept the offer. There are no current or anticipated offers to Mica Energies for such actions.

*The above scenarios are presented as information only with regards to standard business actions that any company might encounter, for each investor to consider as part of overall due diligence.


With best regards,

We believe women approach their careers in a self-reflective way and value factors such as meaning, purpose, connection with co-workers and work-life integration.

PASSIVE RF HARVESTING: NO TRANSMITTERS REQUIRED

about 1 month ago






Mica Energies goal is to develop the “Mica Chip” technology as a premier methodology to harvest RF energy efficiently and effectively from the environment.

 Our Engineering team at Mica Energies is designing a pre-production device capable of demonstrating the ability to passively extract RF energy from the environment of various energy transmission sources. These sources can be cellular towers supporting wireless networks (AT&T, Verizon, et al.) operating at 2G/3G/4G/5G bands, in addition to ISM bands.

 

Several firms have presented prototypes based upon extraction of energy using Near-Field Charging, yet none have delivered a commercialized product that can be utilized in an open environment to support mobility in smartphones.

 

 Mica Energies believes that Passive Far-Field Charging is a solution that will be able to re-charge batteries of any device that has rechargeable batteries installed from energy sources at much greater distances, not hindered by constraints of proximity and line-of-sight at certain angles, nor the additional output of energy just to harvest it.

 

The Mica Chip is intended to utilize existing energy and does not require additional energy to be broadcast via emitters or other devices.

ENERGY STORAGE AND USAGE METHODOLOGY

about 1 month ago


Mica Energies Lab Notes:

Storing and using the harvested energy is one of the most important aspects of an energy harvester.

Once the energy has been conditioned using the appropriate circuitry, it can either be used by the load directly or it can be stored.

Using the ambient RF harvested directly is incredibly challenging since the power output from the harvester is not constant and varies proportionally as the input power, secondly, the harvested power is usually less than the required power and thus the harvester may fail to power the load directly.

Storing the ambient RF harvested energy is the most practical and most used approach used to power loads.

The ambient RF harvested energy can be directly stored in a lithium-ion battery which will then supply the power to the load, or we recommend storing that energy in a capacitor (super) which then discharges through to the lithium-ion battery.

The value of the capacitance influences the life of the lithium-ion battery, smaller values will result in quicker but shorter charging pulses while a larger value will result in slower but longer charging pulses.

A charging circuit will have to be used in this approach.

Supercapacitors also known as ultracapacitors differ from a regular capacitor in that it has extremely high capacitance.

Traditional capacitors store energy by means of static charge while a supercapacitor stores energy by means of static charge and chemical reactions.

Capacitors can be either electrostatic, electrolytic or supercapacitor, supercapacitors have high frequent charge and discharge cycles at high current and short duration, they operate at voltage range of 2.5-2.7V.

Despite having high capacitance, these capacitors cannot be used to power devices directly due to the non-linear nature of its output, they are therefore commonly used to recharge batteries.

A charge controller can let an energy-harvesting system capture all the available energy quickly with minimal loss to a super cap, while energy from the charged super cap is delivered to the charge controller.

The charge controller function can take place with a sleeping micro if it has comparators that can wake up the micro when a threshold is reached.

The time required to charge a typical supercapacitor is about 10 seconds, the charging characteristics is like that of a normal battery and is primarily affected by the charging circuit.

The supercapacitor has little tendency to go into overcharge and therefore does not require full-charge detection.

Nomophobia

"The following passage is from the Wikipedia page on Nomophobia:"

The use of mobile phones has increased substantially since 2005, especially in European and Asian countries. Nomophobia is usually considered a behavioral addiction; it shares many characteristics with drug addiction. The connection of mobile phones to the Internet is one of the causes of nomophobia. The symptoms of addiction may be the result of a need for comfort due to factors such as increased anxiety, poor self-esteem, insecure attachment, or emotional instability. Some people overuse mobile phones to gain comfort in emotional relationships.[6]

Although nomophobia does not appear in the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), it has been proposed as a "specific phobia," based on definitions given in the DSM-IV.[7][dubious – discuss] According to Bianchi and Philips (2005) psychological factors are involved in the overuse of a mobile phone.[8] These could include low self-esteem (when individuals looking for reassurance use the mobile phone in inappropriate ways) and extroverted personality (when naturally social individuals use the mobile phone to excess). It is also highly possible that nomophobic symptoms may be caused by other underlying and preexisting mental disorders, with likely candidates including social phobia or social anxiety disorder, social anxiety,[9] and panic disorder.[10]

The term, an abbreviation for "no-mobile-phone phobia,"[11] was coined during a 2008 study by the UK Post Office who commissioned YouGov, a UK-based research organization, to evaluate anxieties experienced by mobile phone users. The study found that nearly 53% of mobile phone users in Britain tend to be anxious when they "lose their mobile phone, run out of battery or credit, or have no network coverage". The study, sampling 2,163 people, found that about 58% of men and 47% of women had the phobia, and an additional 9% feel stressed when their mobile phones are off. 55% of those surveyed cited keeping in touch with friends or family as the main reason that they got anxious when they could not use their mobile phones.[2][12] The study compared stress levels induced by the average case of nomophobia to be on-par with those of "wedding day jitters" and trips to the dentist.[13]

More than one in two nomophobes never switch off their mobile phones.[14]

It's a New Day in Technology

No Brag, Just Fact!

about 2 months ago

Thank you for your time and consideration investing in Mica Energies Corporation.

The “mobile device” is a consumer staple, an integral part of both personal and commercial existence. This device has evolved into a dynamic computational mechanism capable of basic communications to complex computing with digital display.

As each device is enhanced by new features along with computing power for rich-content applications, the power demands are growing upon the battery that is at the core of the device usefulness. Each device is sold with a power cord for recharging the battery to continue its operation. At a certain point, once the battery capacity has drained down, the device has a built-in safety feature to shutdown to avoid damage to components.

Mica Energies addresses the issue of a device battery that drains to the point of either shutdown or recharge by the owner. Sold as a device of “mobility,” during periods of recharge, this mobility is lost (not available). The subscriber might have access to power by plugging in the device, but in many cases external power access is not available. Depending upon how the device is being used, a shutdown might be just an inconvenience up to a matter of extreme personal safety or business loss. Anytime the Smartphone cannot be used to summon help, regardless of location, then a drained battery is of paramount importance. 

To provide a solution, Mica Energies is developing a “Far-Field Communications 

(FFC)” approach to extracting RF energy from the surrounding environment.

  From observations, our competitors are proposing “solutions” using “Near-Field Communications (NFC)” that can recharge the battery yet requires immobile positioning for lengthy periods of time, effectively negating the intended mobility of the device, and mandates the purchase of emitter devices to place additional energy into the environment for NFC RF harvesting.

Wireless Carriers operate 24x7 communications via cell towers. This is an expense item for which there is no matching revenue to offset. Mica Energies proposes to develop an App that can activate the charging circuit, providing complete carrier control over the accessibility of cell phone tower RF energy harvesting from a subscriber device.

Within the USA, there are conservatively millions of active subscribers, and no existing technology to effectively self-charge a device. Again conservative, potential revenue from a monthly recurring RF Harvesting fee, $ 2.99 for example, could produce a recurring monthly revenue stream of $ 29,000,000+ given a 10 million subscriber election per month. Each telecom provider would determine actual pricing.

Actual monthly results would be determined by the subscriber election of a case or future purchase of a new phone with imbedded charging circuitry coupled with charging activation through the carrier. Additional revenue would be realized upon the subscriber purchase of a charging case for current Smartphones, the new Smartphones / Tablets when available. It is hoped that Self-charging devices will become the catalyst to a mobile society.

We at Mica Energies Corporation hope that our technology will provide a far-reaching competitive edge for IoT Dashboard devices, the consumer, Smartphones and Tablet manufactures.


E- harvesting 101

about 2 months ago

*The schematic shown is prototype not yet available to the general market.


For frequencies harvested we are designing a Mica Energies custom rectifier circuit and custom antennae optimized for maximum gain.

Each Mica Energies resonant frequency harvester will be coupled to cumulatively recharge a rechargeable battery or super capacitor.

We also are designing an automatic linear tuning circuit to maximize power gain.

We designed a broadband antenna with a resonant section that may utilize custom materials designed to augment the interaction between any errant RF energy and the resonant elements thereby enhancing the absorption of RF energy and improving the resultant rectified DC current.

Extremely specific Meta materials are used to augment RF absorption at various frequencies.



E- harvesting top level design

about 2 months ago

The objective of the Mica Chip is to demonstrate that sufficient energy can be harvested from ambient radiation, to be able to provide a charge to an external device with a minimum voltage level of 4.7 volts.  The charge time will depend on the amount of ambient radiation, the losses in the circuit, and the charge capacity of the device being charged.

Once antenna simulation data is available, efficiency estimations at different frequencies across the entire bandwidth of the antenna will be available. This will provide data to help select the bands of interest to harvest within the entire range of the Broadband Antenna Design.

Using our Broadband antenna design offers the opportunity to develop innovative new broadband circuitry in order to harvest energy across the full bandwidth of our Broadband Antenna Design efficiently.

Mica Energies Rf system's goal is to be able to charge at about 5-6 mV per second, resulting in about N hour charging time from 0.2 V to 4.7V .

Electromagnetics forms the foundation of modern electrical and electronic systems that see the technologies we enjoy and take for granted today. It has been used to transfer information and power in our daily lives. Many efforts and much progress have been made to improve power transfer efficiency, reduce system size, and include more functionality; our goal is to cut the last wires in electrical and electronic devices and systems if all possible.

With a dynamic technology and enthusiastic leadership team devoted to expanding the current Rf harvesting capabilities outside the lines, Mica Energies is reaching out to drive the efforts to new levels.

We have all heard that brilliant ideas by some of the brightest individuals were at one time considered “outside the norm” before becoming the next established way of doing things. 

At Mica Energies, stretching our minds to that magnificent location is our daily goal and driving force. 

By stretching our ideas and concepts we come upon fabulous opportunities that would never have been discovered had we not looked outside the lines.

Our strength is in developing and following a vision from concept through construction, to the delight of the end-user. 

Upon completion of the working Pre-Production prototype, Mica Energies proposes to finalize product functional and design specifications, file for additional patents on the technology developed, move into full product development and manufacturing stage, and seek marketing of the technology for full production and product launch to the commercial via OEM’s and military markets.
