@larrym99: Wireless charging is good, especially because the cables that come with chargers tend to get snapped after a couple of months, and wireless means that we don't have to spend our money buying cables. Secondly, a wireless charging dock in the car would be a great feature.

kW or Kw looks like a human vs machine battle. The auto-correct machine won :-(

Just don't leave your wallet in the car or you may find all your cards erased in the morning.

Useful Wireless Charging Application

I've never been all that excited about wireless charging of cell phones. It seems marginally useful to me, more of a gimmick than a really useful feature. I must admit, however, that I like the idea of a wireless charger for an electric car. That seems like something that would be more appealing than having to remember to hook up a cable every night and remove it the next morning. Granted, this is not a major operation, but I would seriously consider buying it.

Thank you Jessica for your paper.

Just a detail to correct : Qualcomm provides 3.3 kW, 6.6 kW, and 20 kW .
W (uppercase) is the symbol for a watt because it comes from the scientist Watt.

m (lower case)is the symbol of a meter  (noone named Meter invented the meter)

As a child who watched a lot of NASCAR (or, rather, was subjected to too much NASCAR), I'm slightly sad at the prospect of cars charging wirelessly on the track. Watching the pit was one of my favorite parts - at least something happened there besides driving in circles!
