Owning electric cars will now be more convenient. There’s no need for electric vehicle owners to plug their cars into wall outlets. A wireless charger for electric cars will be available in the future, as car manufacturers are readying their systems to be compatible with the chargers that will be released in the future. The Society of Automotive Engineers is now supported by a lot of automakers and suppliers to develop the universal charging system, as Freep details:
If you use wireless charging for your phone, you know how quickly having to plug in seems as old-fashioned and laborious as carrying a bucket of well water to your house. People will get used to wireless vehicle charging just as quickly.
“It makes EVs more convenient,” IHSA Markit senior analyst Stephanie Brinley said. “Giving customers more choices will expand the market.”
The system delivers DC current up to 11 kilowatts at the maximum voltage the vehicle can accept over up to 10 inches of space between a pad mounted on the floor to a receiver on the vehicle. Charging efficiency is up to 94%, comparable to wired connections. The SAE is working on higher power levels for future passenger vehicles and heavy-duty applications like mining equipment.
