Relay employs wireless power to bring innovation to its remarkably simple device
As individual relationships with technology continue to begin at increasingly younger ages, Republic Wireless sought to answer a question that many parents have: How can I communicate and keep tabs on my child — without exposing them to the potential dangers of a smartphone? And so, Relay was born.
Today, Relay+ is a screenless, push-to-talk communication device that has expanded beyond family use to facilities management, food services, golf courses, hospitality, healthcare, large venues, construction and more. It even solves challenging communication issues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Four years after launching Relay, the team sought to further simplify the device, while improving its durability and performance. After initially working with their semiconductor partner, IDT, Relay was referred to NuCurrent to implement a custom wireless power design that could achieve both objectives.
Today, the Relay push-to-talk device has garnered mass attention from outlets such as PCMag, Forbes, and, Reviewed as a remarkable alternative to smartphones for children, workforces, and those in quarantine.
NuCurrent’s wireless power solution can be found in Relay+ devices available for purchase today.
