1. A wirelessly chargeable mobile electronic device, comprising:

  • a device magnetic resonator comprising a capacitively-loaded conducting loop configured to receive an oscillating magnetic field from a source magnetic resonator, wherein the device magnetic resonator has an unperturbed device quality factor QD; and

    material positioned to space lossy material from at least a portion of the conducting loop and thereby form a keep-out zone,wherein the keep-out zone enables the device magnetic resonator to have a perturbed device quality factor, QD,perturbed, that is at least 50% of the unperturbed device quality factor QD when the lossy material is positioned immediately outside the keep-out zone.
