Tesla, an electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer founded by Elon Musk, has introduced the Wireless Charging Platform, a wireless charging pad that costs about Rs 25,000 ($300), although customers won’t get it until after February 2023. The business claims that the Wireless Charging Platform gives 15W of “rapid charging power” per device for up to three devices simultaneously and was inspired by the angular shape and metallic appearance of Cybertruck, which is also yet to be unveiled.
In-depth details about Elon Musk’s Tesla introduces a wireless charger for an unbelievable Rs 25,000:
The total power rating for charging is 65W, matching the OnePlus Warp Charge 65 Power Adapter. However, the latter costs Rs 1,999 and only allows consumers to charge one Qi-compatible gadget.
What makes the Tesla Wireless Charging Platform so unique, then? Tesla is proud of both its construction quality and its ability to charge devices. According to the product’s description, the wireless charger has a modern appearance and is made of “quality Alcantara (suede-like microfibre) surface” and “aluminum casing.” Users can lay the charger flat or at an angle for easier viewing thanks to a detachable magnetic stand.
To top it off, Tesla claims that its unique FreePower technology is supported by the Wireless Charging Platform wireless charger, allowing it to charge Qi-compatible items like phones or earbuds placed anywhere on its surface without exact alignment. It should go without saying that for the main unit to function properly, it must be linked to a power supply. The wireless charging station can concurrently accept two smartphones and the charging case for TWS earphones, according to the user handbook. Users can position their smartphones any way they like, but they must set the entire phone’s surface on the pad.
Fans of Tesla and some potential purchasers, though, might be concerned about two things. First and foremost, it would be the delivery as Tesla has a poor track record of delivering goods on schedule. After being unveiled over two years ago, it has yet to introduce the highly anticipated electric Cybertruck. The corporation postponed it until 2023. This year has been such a supply chain disaster, and it is not done, tweeted Tesla CEO Musk, who also now owns Twitter, in November.
Price comes in second. Even the most ardent supporters of Tesla or Musk would hesitate before shelling out $300 for a wireless charger—the price of a respectable midrange smartphone in India (without wireless charging). Some sources compare Apple’s AirPower and the Tesla Wireless Charging Platform. The former was created to simultaneously charge three Apple products: the iPhone, Watch, and AirPods. Although the price was officially disclosed, numerous tipsters anticipated it would cost $250. (roughly Rs 20,700).
In any case, Tesla’s Wireless Charging Platform might not be popular, but it might just be a publicity stunt for their next product. Similar tactics were used in the past by Apple, which introduced the Mac Pro Wheels Kit at a hefty price of Rs 69,900.
