Cordless Electrical Car Charging: The Future is Here!

Cordless Electrical Car ChargingAlso known as wireless charging or inductive charging, cordless car charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between the charging station and the electric car.

Several manufacturers of electric cars have implemented the technology, including Toyota and Volvo. The charging of the battery of a plug-in hybrid car or a car ran purely by electricity will occur by the car simply parking on top of the charger. This method will cause a transmission of electricity using magnetic resonance occurring from a reaction in magnetic field intensity between a coil placed on the ground underneath the car and a receiving coil built into the bottom of the vehicle.

Wireless car charging technology eliminates the need for the electric or hybrid car to be plugged in and acts as a universal charging station, virtually eliminating the need for multiple car charging plug standards and charging stations.

This technology already exists in many homes and smaller applications (the electric toothbrush for example).

Roughly 15 years have passed since small teams of engineers and a handful of car manufacturers started to tinker with this bold idea.

Further enhancing the experience of wireless charging is a Control Panel device, which can be mounted on the wall opposite to the garage door or on a pedestal mount. For a hassle-free experience, the Control Panel senses your arrival and displays directional arrows for guiding the driver exactly above the charging pad for maximum charging efficiency.

Getting smart about Christmas lights in 2018.

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Halloween came and went, and now, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, once the decorating is finished, that is. One of the most visually pleasing parts of the season is all the festive lights in creative places on neighboring houses. But that type of effect isn't limited to just outdoors; lighting plays a big part in Christmas inside as well. A tree with no lights looks dimly like a big plant in the center of the room. That's until the carefully strung lights shine throughout the magnificent green (and sometimes even white) tree and show off what's adorned on the branches. To make sure you get the most of your festive lighting, this year make a switch if you haven't already too smart lighting with LEDs.

What others say about John's Electric Service

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.
