A team of scientists from Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed the world’s most powerful wireless charging for electric vehicles.

Its power is 100 kW (120 W peak) with an efficiency of 96%. The operating principle is the same as in wireless phone chargers.

The difference is that a car charger transfers charge through a 35 cm long coil and does not require a tight connection to the car. The test Hyundai Kona electric car was charged to 50% in 20 minutes. In this case, the gap between the charger and the car is 13 cm long.

This technology is currently under development. For full implementation, cooperation with car manufacturers is necessary so that they install wireless charging on the car at the factory.

Wireless charging for electric vehicles looks promising in the future because it is the only alternative way to charge a car. However, in some cases, wireless charging may take up less space than a traditional wired charging station. [Oak Ridge National Laboratory]
