1. A universal system including a base unit for an intelligent inductive power transfer process, the system having a charger or power supply being capable of operating under a plurality of inductive power transfer protocols for communication and control of the inductive power transfer process such that each power transfer protocol allows wireless charging operation between receivers and the base unit, the receivers and the base unit being of different manufacturers but also being capable of adhering to an appropriate universal charging protocol chosen from inductive power transfer protocols that are not interoperable,wherein the base unit and the receivers communicate unidirectionally or bi-directionally with each other prior to charging or powering to determine the appropriate universal charging protocol and then proceed to charge or power mobile devices via the receivers using the appropriate universal charging protocol;

  • wherein the appropriate universal charging protocol defines and establishes one or more of the power transfer frequencies of the charger, a communication method or communication encoding, or data rate and message structure or power requirement; and

    wherein the system allows for ineroperability of different communication protocols that are otherwise inoperable without the system.
