Thanks Paul and Martin for the link. As far as I know only Fraunhofer is exploring the vertical pads (aka license plate charging). All others are looking at under the car charging - mainly for EMF/safety reasons. Nice to see such high percentage of efficiency though - 95%! Cheers, Peter On

How about getting the air-conditioner from a wrecked Leaf? On our (non-wrecked) 2012 Leaf, the A/C uses hardly any juice as compared to its hot-water electric resistance heating system, which will use either 1500 or 3000 watts, depending on how much you ask it to do. I think the A/C probably
