Electric vehicles are fast becoming an alternative to fuel powered vehicles as they are non-polluting and cost efficient. However, they require a wired charger which needs to be connected to the vehicle while charging. Often this is not quite feasible as your packing space might not have a socket nearby. To overcome such choke points in using electric powered vehicles, Evatran Inc which is a Virginia based technology company has introduced a revolutionary device that can charge your vehicle wireless using the principal of electromagnetic induction. It safe, convenient and hands-free and allows you to charge your vehicle anywhere.
Here’s how it works: The device needs a floor mounted parking pod along with a separate adapter unit in the vehicle. The parking pad uses the electric current to create a magnetic field which is received by the adapter in the vehicle. This is again converted into a current which charges the vehicle. The parking ad is floor mounted and is controlled by a separate power control module. Also included is an indicator which guides the user in aligning the vehicle correctly and displays the charging status. The system automatically gets activated once the vehicle is in the correct slot and shuts off whenit’s fully charged. You also have an option to turn off the charging and move your vehicle after sometime and can also use a normal cord based charger.
It currently supports the Chevrolet Volt ad the Nissan Leaf models. The model is yet to be released and is estimated to cost around $3000 along with installation by their team of professionals. A pre-launch unit was also installed in Google headquarters in March 2011.The device can be installed in your home, office as well as in commercial establishments. It can also be used by fleet owners who would need to regularly charge their vehicles.

People cannot imagine a day or week without cars in this fast pace world where life has been become fast and lagging is not bearable for anyone. For how much you are dedicated to green living, leaving a face pace life with your car is now turning difficult till eco-friendly vehicles all around on the roads. Giving up the driving is also an impractical step for green environment dedicated individuals. With more economic downturns and practical changes in the world, we may have to think that cutting back is profitable policy.
If you leave your car for one day of the week and use an alternative transportation source, your percentage of carbon footprints will be decreased and cost value would be cut down. The world demand for petroleum is around 90 million barrels daily and running cars on the roads causing 70 percent of the monoxide pollution which is big amount to make great difference.
There are so many benefits associated with public transport and walk. You may better understand the health improvements. If we get a chance to go outside and get the better fitness, there would be no other better idea then this to save the money and live green. Riding on a bus or using the bike is also something to enjoy and it’s difficult to travel through bike or foot, you may also ask for carpooling system with your fellow guys. You may get a chance to know one another and create the understanding with fellow guys. Carpooling would inspire the more people to bring cooperation and encourage other people to support us and would not be stressful when you get chance to leave the driving a day.
The second major benefit of not driving your car for a day in week is improvement in your finance. Gas and petroleum prices have moved to the peaks and would increase more. Nations have understood the fact that this resource of energy is also ending with time. In EIA reports, it has been told that new economic cars have also lowered down the gas consumption and have been more fuel efficient vehicles.
Another major benefit you will get is associated with your car insurance. When an insurer finds the fact that you are not driving more, the rates would lower down and this is because per mileage travel and accident risks are also downed. It has been told in many studies that people drive more than what actually they need every day. Expense percentage has increased over last few decades because of increase in population and new generation loving the cars more and more today.
As much now cars have been increased in all the countries, the volume of pollution have been turned double. Trucks and cars consume thousands tons of our petroleum resources and also need other liquid to run the system. A short story to end here is that excessive use of automobile is hazardous for our environment and there would be worst if we don’t control the dilemma today.
