Unplug the world with Bumblebee.

Position-tolerant wireless charging solutions for electric scooters, autonomous systems, and portable devices.

The only solution that delivers the ease of use people expect from wireless charging.

Bumblebee’s wireless charging technology solves all the limitations of existing inductive charging solutions, giving you:

  • 3X the distance
  • 3X the tolerance to misalignment
  • 5X lighter footprint

A successful spin-out of Imperial College London, Bumblebee outperforms competing solutions on all key metrics — unleashing a wireless charging experience so seamless, it feels like magic.

From Imperial College to your doorstep.

Until now, inductive charging has been held back by limited adoption and underwhelming solutions. Past offerings were either bulky, inconvenient, or barely more than contactless charging.

Introducing Bumblebee, born in 2021 from £5m in research funding at Imperial’s cutting-edge Wireless Power Lab.

Our mission? To create a wireless charging solution people actually want to use — one that’s easy to integrate, offers unparalleled freedom of positioning, caters to any power requirement, and works with an array of vehicle types, all while charging multiple devices from a single pad.
