Plugless Power for Your Electric Vehicle – Nanalyze

In a previous article we highlighted Witricity, a very innovative company looking to truly disrupt the nature of powering and charging battery powered devices with wireless charging products. One other company that has made such wireless charging products available today to electric vehicle owners is Evatran (or Plugless Power).

Virginia based Evatran was founded in 2010 and was initially started as a subsidiary of MTC Transformers, a company which manufactures the large electrical transformers you see on telephone poles. The company is mostly referred to by the name of its lead product, Plugless Power. So far the company has raised $2.5 million in private investments from three funding rounds and $4 million in Department of Energy grants. The company has a number of partnerships that include Google, Hertz Rent-A-Car. Duke Energy, and the State of Virginia.

A vehicle adaptor which is custom designed for each electric vehicle is permanently installed underneath the vehicle. Afterwards, the vehicle can simply be parked over the parking pad when not in use and the batteries will automatically be charged as seen below:
