No, it has to be less efficient...wireless radiates in many directions (even if you use resonance like in this case), you have to be a right place with teh reight surrounding for an optimum energy transfer...it is more effcient with wrires for sure, the only question is by how much...Kris

Qualcomm does not provide much engineering detail but seems to indicate that wireless charging can be much the same as conductive charging but with the benefit of not having to connect up the car.

See Moving Beyond Oil on the Aesop Institute website for a 5 minute electric car charging system under development at Hydro Quebec. Combine these technologies and we will have a whole new ball game!

Interesting idea of wireless charging...how efficient that charging is though? how long would it take to charge a battery?...and if you sit in car do you get to be charged too? ;-)...Kris
