I look forward to being able to power a basic LCD-screened calculator from this instead of an in-built solar cell. Surely the world's energy woes are solved!

EDIT: Doesn't 5G require a tracked paired device to aim at?

Don't you look forward to your IOT calculator tracking your accounting and sending it back to China? >:D
