1. A method of transmitting power wirelessly, comprising:

  • driving a series resonant antenna at a value near its resonant frequency to produce a magnetic field output, said non radiative antenna formed of a combination of resonant parts, including at least an inductive part formed by a wire loop, and a capacitor part that is separate from a material forming the inductive part; and

    maintaining at least one characteristic of said antenna such that its usable range has a minimum usable distance over which power can be received, which minimum distance is set by a detuning effect when a receiver gets too close to said antenna.
