Wireless power is one of the new terms that define this century. In the age of mobility, the need for wireless power transfer (WPT) is growing fast. There are several approaches for transferring the electric power wirelessly. In this paper, different methodologies for WPT are investigated as well as advantages, disadvantages and possible applications for each one. In addition, health safety and economical aspects of each applicable approach are discussed. A qualitative comparison between main methods has been achieved based on separation distance, transmitting power, cost, efficiency, and safety. Qi wireless power transfer standard is spreading in low power mobile devices up to 5 Watts and showed great potential for charging high power devices in the future.
