After all, there's really no point in having all that extra equipment if you have to charge it, right? But when we actually got a chance to try it out in the wild, we were a little less skeptical.
The dream is a reality: Non-wireless charging.
Big news is that. Non-wireless charging is becoming a reality. Fisker is releasing their first commercial project with the new technology in October, albeit through a customer in Europe. But by 2011, it'll be available in limited quantities in the States, as long as you know someone.
This battery pack is just part of Fisker's bigger plan for electric cars: They're planning to sell an entire lineup of cars — including, of course, a luxury electric car at some point. The battery pack is just one piece of the puzzle in this (still nascent) plan.
The non-wireless battery pack concept.
The Fisker non-wireless charger does run off of a regular, old charge cord — but with a twist. The cord has a small base so that it can fit into the battery pack, and there's an electric motor that then spins on the main cord you feed it. It seems to work quite nicely. You get the feeling that non-wireless charging is more like standard charging, but without the need to have a power outlet nearby.
There's a reason that Fisker is planning to sell a limited number of non-wireless chargers in the States: they're not very convenient. You'd need to set up a whole charging station. In practice, we'd 0b46394aab
