1. A wireless power converter comprising:

  • at least one receiving high-Q magnetic resonator configured to capture electrical energy received wirelessly through a first oscillating magnetic field characterized by a first plurality of parameters; and

    at least one transferring high-Q magnetic resonator configured to generate a second oscillating magnetic field characterized by a second plurality of parameters different from the first plurality of parameters;

    wherein the electrical energy from the at least one receiving magnetic resonator is used to energize the at least one transferring magnetic resonator to generate the second oscillating magnetic field;

    wherein the first plurality of parameters includes a first frequency parameter different from a second frequency parameter of the second plurality of parameters.
