This study proposes a new resonant magnetic charger comprising circular spiral coils that operate with a strong coupling effect between the transmitter and the receiver. The two spiral coils are fitted with additional copper tapes to serve as resonant transmitter and receiver coils. The magnetic flux distributions are calculated using temporal coupled mode theory. Analysis results show that the proposed system can dramatically improve the efficiency and extend the power transfer distance. Experiments have been carried out in order to verify the performance of the system. In particular, the trends of output voltages when either the operating frequencies or the transfer distances are changing are reported. The system efficiency obtained experimentally is also given. Both calculated and measured results are in good agreement.
