China offers the largest market for automobiles and there is a strong desire to convert polluting fossil fuel based cars to electric vehicles. Plug in charging for electric vehicles is not scalable, neither is inductive charging due to radiation problems. ELIX’s wireless charging solutions are aimed at solving all of these issues and become a key enabler to the mega electric vehicle trend in China. “Our technology commercialization is happening at a time when the automotive market needs it the most, we offer best in class wireless charging for automobiles and other applications.” Said Rosalie Hou, CEO of ELIX Wireless. “Our engineering center in Shanghai will transform working prototypes to mass producible devices”.
ELIX technology sets itself apart from traditional inductive charging through a number of unique characteristics: the almost total absence of electro-magnetic radiation, making ELIX the safest technology for public and medical charging; a reduced cost per Watt when scaling the chargers to higher power levels, making ELIX the preferred charging mechanism for electric buses and cars; and the high efficiency of its transmission, making ELIX the preferred charging technology for higher power levels. In addition to all these benefits ELIX can charge in various weather conditions while maintaining high efficiency.
