ELIX Announces That Its 8000 Watt Wireless Charger Will Be Available Just-in-Time to Support Tesla's Volume Shipments

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - ELIX, Canada's leading developer of wireless charging technology, today announced mass availability of its 8000 Watt wireless charger by the end of 2017, in time to save Tesla 3 owners the hassle of plugging in their cars. Orders for the Tesla 3 have already exceeded 325,000 to date.

ELIX will start taking deposits on the new wireless charger starting May 1. Interested parties can pay a US$388 deposit using the company's website, www.elixwireless.com.

ELIX began shipping its first product last year to various customers in the law enforcement and electrical vehicle industries in Canada, Europe and Asia. The company was started in 2013 by a group of PhDs from Stanford, the University of British Columbia in Canada, and the National University of Ireland. The underlying technology is patent protected.

ELIX technology sets itself apart from traditional inductive charging through a number of unique characteristics: the almost total absence of electro-magnetic radiation, making ELIX the safest technology for public and medical charging; a reduced cost per Watt when scaling the chargers to higher power levels, making ELIX the preferred charging mechanism for electric buses; and the high efficiency of its transmission, making ELIX the preferred charging technology for higher power levels. In addition to all these benefits ELIX can charge in various weather conditions while maintaining high efficiency. ELIX can even transfer electrical power underwater and through various other liquids, such as oil and gasoline.
