Mopar's industry-first in-vehicle wireless charging technology for portable devices is among six finalists for the second annual AOL Autos Technology of the Year award. The award honors the manufacturers who have raised the bar the highest in the world of automotive technology, specifically in the categories of active safety, connectivity, telematics or fuel economy.
After reviewing more than 40 nominations, the expert team of judges from AOL Autos, Autoblog, Engadget TechCrunch and others, revealed the Mopar device as one of the six finalists on Nov. 19 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Mopar's wireless charging technology works with iPhone, Blackberry, MP3 Players and Droid-based devices and currently is available for the 2013 Dodge Dart and comes standard on the Mopar '13.
Mopar's system consists of an easy access, seamlessly integrated power bin, measuring 8.27 inches by 9.5 inches by 3.25 inches, that is installed just below the center stack and in front of the center console. The bin has a built-in charging grid that is activated when customers place their battery-powered devices on it. The unit begins to charge when the vehicle is started. A phone case, specifically designed for a variety of smartphones, is required and included with the feature.
Mopar's in-vehicle wireless charging is available for $199.99, plus installation (part number 82213216).
More information on Mopar's wireless charger and accessories is available at www.mopar.com/wirelesscharging.
The in-vehicle wireless charging technology is being showcased on the Mopar Chrysler 300S concept vehicle being displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Consumers are invited to vote for Mopar's in-vehicle wireless charging technology at Autos.AOL.com/Award until Dec. 6. The result of the consumer vote will equal the weight of one judge on the panel.
