"yes electric cars could mostly be found on US and EU roads. It might take a while for the technology to reach the other countries."

Shehan, it's there in other countries too. Some of the countries, which I know are Thailand, Singapore, India, Japan, Taiwan, Honk Kong, Malaysia etc.

@DbWilson – these wireless charges consume more power than the wired charges as they lose power when its transmitted from one device to another.

@jhankwitz – yes I too fell that this might not be an easy task as we might have to face situations where the charger does not detect the vehicle etc. However these devices require frequent testing and servicing to function properly.

@a.saji – Most car manufacturers are looking forward to come up with the green car concept. I know Nissan came up with a model named Nissan Leaf.

@Jmiller – I too wonder if this electric wave impacts our human body. As we know our body sends an electric pulse to keep every component running smooth, unless this uses another frequency which does not affect the human body.

@Jmiller – Most countries adopt to technology slowly, so this will take few months or even years to see these devices used in countries outside US, UK, Japan etc.

@Jmiller – To what I have heard so far, the vehicle needs to be directly above the charger to transmit power from the device to the charging unit fixed to the vehicle.

@NadineJ- yes if your kids are hungry you would want to feed them somehow. I think economic growth and employment rates play an important role.

@jmiller – yes I too would love to have a wireless charging device at home, but the only question is affordability. Can we afford it?
