Wireless charging technology by Delphi

Smartphone, iPod, laptop computer, DVD player for the kids, aftermarket sat-nav;€“ the 21st century car can easily become a twisted mass of knotted cables. The reason is all these consumer devices need power. But what if you could keep their batteries full without the need for them to be plugged in?

Automotive supplier Delphi has come up with the answer and was showcasing it at CES. Wireless charging technology can transfer electric power over short distances without any physical contact. So the kids can have an iPad attached to the back of the front seat headrest to watch a film, and there'€™s charging technology hidden in the foam padding. Or you just drop your mobile phone into the cubby hole by the gearstick and think no more about it.
