With wireless charging slowly making its way to mobile phones, maybe it’s time that electric vehicles get a healthy dose of wireless charging too, and that might come in the form of Evatran’s Plugless Power Station. This system works by installing an adapter about the size of a shoebox into the car, which will be able to charge the battery when the car is close enough to the power station’s parking block, though the distance required is a very unforgiving two inches only, so you might want to make sure your driving skills are up to scratch. Aside from the inconvenience, the Evatran Plugless Power Station currently operates at 80% efficiency, though it hopes to achieve 90% efficiency on launch, which is slated to be by April 2011 and should be priced around $800.
