They can power directly or charge devices. Until some distance can be achieved, the eCoupled approach merely eliminates the "plug in" step. It doesn't eliminate the constraints of distance to the recharge console. However, it does render a one-size-fits-all aspect for all portable devices. No doubt, it's a fun baby step toward a wireless power future. Those first few steps can be the most enjoyable. No doubt, there will yet be astonishing leaps in the future, including the ability to not be constrained by distance — something Nikola Tesla was working on a century ago. Someday we might catch up to him."
