Honda researches high-power electric-car charging, at highway speeds

Even with recent efforts to expand it, electric-car charging infrastructure is nowhere near rivaling the ubiquity of gas stations.

But what if electric cars didn’t need to stop to charge?

That’s essentially what a new Honda research project aims to investigate.

Wireless charging for cars, phones, and everything else electric is coming soon – Vox

Electricity is amazing. You spin a coil of wire through a magnetic field and next thing you know everyone with access to an outlet has clean, quiet, instantaneous, and virtually unlimited power at their fingertips, whenever they need it. Wild.

It does have a couple of drawbacks, though.

Plugless charging for 80 percent of electric cars by end of 2017: Evatran

Wireless charging for electric cars has been talked about almost as long as modern electric cars have been on sale.

The thought of charging an electric car without having to wrestle with a bulky charging cable can certainly be appealing.

So far, though, wireless-charging systems have only been available in limited quantities from a handful of aftermarket companies.
