1. A method for transferring power to a receptor mobile device from a donor mobile device having a battery, comprising;

  • configuring a donor wireless power transfer mechanism on the donor mobile device using a wireless transmit application;

    configuring a receptor wireless power transfer mechanism on the receptor mobile device using a wireless receive application;

    transferring power from donor mobile device to the receptor mobile device using the donor wireless power transfer mechanism and the receptor wireless power transfer mechanism; and

    receiving and converting received power into electric current using the receptor wireless power transfer mechanism;

    wherein the donor wireless power transfer mechanism includes a primary coil and donor circuit elements and the receptor wireless power transfer mechanism includes a secondary coil, receptor circuit elements and a capacitor such that the donor circuit elements provide electric current to the primary coil producing a magnetic field that generates an electric current in the secondary coil and the receptor circuit elements thereby transferring power from donor mobile device to the receptor mobile device, the capacitor storing electric charge that increases battery life when the capacitor is discharged.
