    When we are all thinking about how to be moe energy efficient I am concerned that people think we need to charge cars by a less efficient means. Does anyone think that wirelessly charging will not have additional charging losses?

    The article doesn't even get its units right, when it says:

    " The system can transmit up to 3,300 watts per hour and takes four to six hours to fully charge the vehicle."

    There is no such (useful) unit as watts per hour. There are watt-hours per hour -- which is just the same thing as watts.

    Units went out the window when they said power instead of energy.
