Even if it doesn't work on heavy electric loads, it would be marvelous to
not have to connect cell phones, ipods, and the like, to chargers

Remarkably similar technology has been available for years (first observed
personally in the early 50's) so I doubt IPR claims will survive prior art.

That said I expect there will be questions on energy efficacy, potential
impact on health (one of the reasons it did not go far in the 50's) and the
big one (if you  think theft of service with WiFi is a problem ...) power
theft.
