Over the years, society has evolved technologically to the point where we become dependent on technology. Today, nearly everybody have smartphone devices. This leads to the popularity of portable chargers since portable devices do not have a constant source of power. Even most portable chargers share the same problem as portable devices, which they both share a finite amount of battery power before needing to recharge at a power outlet. Ultimately, they are just temporary solutions to the problem of the lack of power. However, society assumes the abundance of electric power sources where they view them as an infinite resource. As a result, situations that arise where access to power sources become unavailable, the realization that electricity identifies as a finite resource induces a sense of fear in people. Even for those living in third world countries, the access to electricity is a major improvement in their everyday lives. However, the availability of other power sources exist. Many human-powered generation methods in the past decades have shown indication of advancement. These sources share one common trait; they can generate power. One of these power generating methods is through induction charging.
