Imagine a world where your device never needs to be plugged in to charge but is powered from free, unused energy that is in the air around us.
Freevolt™ is a brand new innovative technology that provides power for Low Energy Internet of Things (LE-IoT) devices. Its a patented*, pioneering technology that harvests radio frequency (RF) energy from wireless and broadcast networks such as 2G, 3G, 4G, WiFi & Digital TV.
The Energy Opportunity
Freevolt ambient RF energy harvesting is the way low energy IoT devices will be powered in the future. Freevolt technology can extend device lifetime by constantly trickle charging the battery and removing the need for battery swaps or plug-in charging.
The first commercial application of our revolutionary new Freevolt technology is the CleanSpace™ Tag, a personal air quality pollution sensor. It uses energy from wireless signals, such as WiFi and Mobile Phone Networks, to charge the Tag. It will never have to be plugged in to charge or change its batteries for its lifetime - a world first from Drayson Technologies.

The highly efficient Freevolt rectifying antenna and associated circuitry is able to harvest small amounts of power from existing transmission networks, such as Wi-Fi, digital TV and cellular - 2G, 3G, 4G - into usable electricity. Freevolt reuses this unused energy without interfering with the data connectivity and without requiring any increase in transmission power.
Drayson Technologies is the first to commercialisation of multi-band ambient RF energy harvesting and is changing the way product companies will design and engineer Low Energy Internet of Things devices.
The CleanSpace™ Tag gives members of the CleanSpace™ Movement actionable, personal, air quality data (specifically carbon monoxide) and by crowd sourcing that data, provides a highly effective air quality network.
Air pollution is a growing concern, especially in our major cities and its impact on an individual’s health is a well-documented issue. The CleanSpace™ Tag will help create a crowd sourced network of people keen to make a difference and help us lead healthier lives.
Some of the early applications for Freevolt are listed below. However there are many more and, like any good technology, it will be the creativity and innovation of the international developer community that will truly realise Freevolt’s potential.
Freevolt enables a variety of sensor applications including air quality monitoring, temperature measurements, vibration, motion & smoke detection.
