It promises 93% energy transfer, similar to wired charging.

Current phone wireless technology requires the device to be in contact with the charger, and properly oriented. This is so onerous with my Galaxy S10 phone, that I do not use it.
WiTricity's tech eliminates these issues. It is so flexible that batteries could be recharged while sitting at a stop light, or taxi batteries while in the cue. Supposedly 🤔.

Wireless tech would eliminate the complexities associated with physically connecting a charger to the charging port. This would facilitate automous vehicles.

I'm just putting wireless car charging on the radar.
