There is an increasing need to power mobile devices inside the vehicle. Whether it’s the driver, the passenger sitting alongside the driver, or the kids in the back seat – everyone wants a charge.
Charging cables are not convenient and are also a safety risk. Charging pads require the phone to be neatly placed on them and limit the ability to use the phone.
Beyond mobile devices, sensors (such as back-seat seat-belt sensors) might also need to be powered, and wiring them is expensive.
Will in-car charging go the way of cup holders, where you have some vehicles with a dozen cup holders? Or is there a better way?
Wi-Charge potentially solves this issue. By installing a power transmitter in the vicinity of the dome light, power can be delivered without wires to several areas in the car. While this requires some fine-tuning, it’s an application worth exploring.
