>Nikola Tesla was one of first to employ wireless power, demonstrating it at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. He might be happy that another of his ideas has found an application more than a century later.
Evatran’s Plugless Power uses a proximity power system to charge EV batteries without any physical connection. The driver parks their car. A “parking block” aligns itself with the car’s built-in adapter. The battery charges through induction. No, this doesn’t mean you’re going to get zapped by electricity flying through the air. Tesla’s demonstrations took place over a century ago and were safe even then.
This technology could solve many of the problems associated with EV charging infrastructure – the need to leave the vehicle plugged in and often unattended, electrocution anxieties (still persistent despite being unfounded), and simply forgetting to charge-up. (Anyone with a cell phone knows this problem too well).
Imagine parking lots where, instead of yellow concrete parking stops, there were Plugless Power stations. This technology provides a beautifully simple way to recharge an EV.
