Whats so bad about plugging it in?

At least with a cordwhen it quits working you can replace it. To replace this thing it looks a little more involved.

Sorry, no garage.

I think the newer nexus phones and tablets use the wireless charging technology. That should be further explored before going full scale with vehicles.

Anybody hear of this? Apparently it has been out for two years: Evatran Plugless L2 | Best of What's New | Popular Science

Recharge wirelessly for about $2,500 with only 10% transmission loss.

More like 900% more loss than a cord.

Well it looks like Evatran is gone or has been gone for a while now.

https://www.swvatoday.com/news/bland...26861c1f7.html

Yeah so it turns out plugging in a j1772 isn't really that big a deal and it looks like over half of EV owners who charge at home only use the 120v evse that came with the car.
And see paying a few hundred dollars to get a level 2 charger and the supporting electrical installed for it as a big deal.
