I have gotten a slightly more powerful version (as in the video) but the main problem is that the coil's inductive resistence is high enough that no matter how much current I make avaliable, the current used is still usually below a few amps. The secondary coil is just a few miliamps.
Mr. Duffy, it is up to YOU to discover that breakthrough for fast charging. I hope you do; you could be the person who finally gets all-electric vehicles into the mainstream. Nothing we've seen to date has done a good job of this.
Thanks. The wireless charger and coils I used delivered about 12V, so you could charge almost anything. The current, however, is pretty low, so it takes a long time to charge batteries. If you have any improvements to the power output capability or efficency of the design, I'd love to see them.
I agree, DRGONZO. It was certainly exciting to see this young man present his project and to see the next generation of engineers at work. I particular appreciated his desire to be innovative by looking for ways to improve the project.
Although plastics make up only about 11% of all US municipal solid waste, many are actually more energy-dense than coal. Converting these non-recycled plastics into energy with existing technologies could reduce US coal consumption, as well as boost domestic energy reserves, says a new study.
