1. An apparatus for wirelessly receiving power from a power transmitter, the apparatus comprising:

  • a processor;

    a communication link, operatively coupled to the processor;

    a memory, operatively coupled to the processor; and

    a receiver operatively coupled to the processor, the receiver configured to wirelessly receive power from three-dimensional pockets of energy formed by power transmission signals from the power transmitter,wherein the processor is configured to determine if an identification value for the apparatus is stored in the memory, and, if no identification value is stored, generate an identification value for the apparatus,and wherein the processor is configured to transmit via the communication link one of (i) the stored identification value and (ii) the generated identification value,and wherein the receiver is configured to begin wirelessly receiving the power after the processor has transmitted the stored or generated identification value via the communication link.
