  1. Wireless charging! Sounds great, and as easy as my toothbrush…..
    But now what will happen to all those permanent charging stanchions, dotting the Chinese landscape?
    Is it ultimately a doomed infrastructure?
    And doesn’t wireless charging take longer, and consume more electricity?

  2. Yes, wireless charging does sound very attractive. But as we all know, for now the wireless charging technology is not very efficient, in wireless technology there is a lot of loss of energy. And about the permanent charging stations, those are not going anywhere soon, major reason is the efficiency and also the maintenance which can keep the cost down. Just like the smartphone industry, even though there are top level high spec phones with wireless but still many prefer wired. So, wireless technology is still new, it will go through many development, there is also need for battery improvement. But far in the future, there is a possibility of wireless taking over, but for that we would just have to wait.
