We derive the throughput of an energy-constrained mobile network, where wireless charging vehicles recharge the battery of each mobile node. We find that the throughput is closely related to the ratio between the number of nodes n and the number of wireless charging vehicles m. Through analytic and numerical results, we show that the scaling law of the throughput is Θ(min(1, mn)min(1 mn)), where c is constant (0<c<1).
