More And More The Future Of Home Charging Is Looking Wireless These Days

Audi has put together the ultimate in “one upping the neighbor” commercials.

We won’t spoil the ad promo shot for the company heading into CES this week in Las Vegas, but you can look forward to seeing the new/in-production Audi A3 e-Tron, some autonomous driving, some sleek wrist-tech and some inductive charging to boot.

…and dogs.

Cool!
For those who have a garage! Can’t have this system outside exposed to the elements so i’ll stick with my Plugless System for now, almost as cool.

Is this wireless charging? It looks like the mat is raising up to touch the car?

Yes it’s wireless charging. But it is raising up to minimize the distance between the coils since the inudced field is reduced by the square of the distance.

You could compare it to your tootbrush where plastic of the charger meets plastic of the tootbrush even though it’s still inductive wireless charging.

If it is mechanically raised you may as well raise plain contacts and go for 100% yield.
