FLO partners on advanced wireless charging methods

FLO is working with WiTricity to test wireless EV charging technology at its engineering lab.

FLO, a North American electric vehicle (EV) charging company and a smart charging solutions provider, is working with industry companies, WiTricity and Hubject, to test and advance both wireless charging and Plug & Charge technology.

FLO says it is working with WiTricity to test wireless EV charging technology at its engineering lab and notes that FLO is testing options for stations to charge vehicles without cables using the WiTricity Halo EV charging system.

Additionally, the company notes that it is working with Hubject to enable Plug & Charge across its new generation product portfolio for all compatible EVs on the road. Plug & Charge allows EV drivers to plug in and begin charging without using an app, RFID card or separate method of payment. Hubject and FLO will work on encryption technology to ensure all transactions are both seamless and secure.
