    As someone in the wireless industry. I'll tell you, it's made out of aluminum because the tech is so inefficient it needs adequate heat sinking due to the losses of the overlapping coils.
    It's not because they wanted to make it quality feeling. That is just a result of the engineering bandaid.

      Right? Personally I also think marketing these as "wireless" chargers is a BS gimmick.
      Sure, you're not plugging a charger directly into the device but the charger itself still needs to be plugged in!
      But what really gets me is that unlike traditional chargers, you can't even really use your devices while they're charging on these things!

  • Strangely Ironic

    No way Tesla manufactured that; you can't see the gaps from a mile away. At least it gives credit to who actually made the tech unlike the revolutionary batteries they claimed to create that were just existing Panasonic cells lmao.

      @Ahsan Khan There's still unanswered questions. What's the charging speed? Does it get slower when you put more devices on the pad? Does it get hot? I know he said that he could change up to three devices but didn't bother showing it actually happening.

    Man if they marketed this right they could sell. I could see maybe a 3 year replacement program and easily acceible parts to buy for 10 years after launch. Yes it's 300 and that's ridiculous but if it's supported and can do 3 devices this could hold up in the long run if they put an once of effort in and good marketing

  • AdequateQuality

    There's about 30 wireless coils in the charger so you're essentially spending $10/coil which makes sense for the price. On top of that, you have a premium feeling and looking product (I imagine so)

    • AdequateQuality
      AdequateQuality 3 days ago

      @Prashnaveet Prasad The crucial aspect here isn’t the number of wireless chargers, but it has to do with Tesla’s sophisticated power management and convenience. With individual wireless chargers, you can gladly put a single device on top of the coil and do that for all other products but that’s tedious and doesn’t offer a compact 3-in-1 solution when you can instead place your device anywhere on the Tesla pad. That’s what’s different.

    In order to not have to plug in a cable to charge, you need to plug a cable into the charger. We were working on this exact product back in 2011 at Philips: one charger mat for your bathroom devices (toothbrushes etc) and that never made it to market. I’m sure Tesla will make it a massive success 12 years later at a bargain price…. 🙈

    Best wireless charging is one that can be used but not seen; so the closest in my eye is the ones mounted under a desk or bedside table and work through it. Way cleaner aesthetic and more practical should you have indicators where to place your wireless charging campatible device. Still, I crave for a wireless OTA charging solution.
