Standards are critical to making new technology accessible on a wide scale. For instance, it’s not a good thing if your spiffy new EV charger needs an 11 pin socket, even if it will add 300 miles of range in 30 seconds. The same thinking applies to wireless charging. It’s one thing to be able to charge your EV without needing to plug in. It’s not such a good thing if every company has their own proprietary systems that won’t work with other systems.
Wireless charging is an important component in the transition to a world where electric cars are predominant. High power, high speed chargers may be necessary for those traveling long distances, but for normal daily driving, being able to add some juice to your battery while you are grocery shopping, at the office, or visiting a restaurant could make the difference between being comfortable driving an electric car or being stressed out about getting it home to the charger in your garage.
