    those use ac induction to send the charge everything.. so they won't work in the car without a inverter. and you might need a true-sine inverter, as the squar-wave ones might not work correctly

      While they use AC induction to move the power wirelessly, I think they do AC-DC-AC Induction-DC judging by the wall wart shown here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ImageG...or%20HTC%20HD2

      So you should be able to just go from 12 volts DC to whatever the mat takes in with the right power supply for car use.

          I saw one installed in a car at CES a couple of years ago, so I know it can be done easily.

          I don't think it will conduct through metal, but that is easy enough to test - try it!

              All Evo/Power Mat user agree with me, that charging phone outside of your mat could be a pain. I have lost 1 plug already, thanks to removing it often. When that happen, you have to buy whole new charging door.

              My need was charging phone while either in portrait or landscape mode.

              Parts and Material used:
              Single Power Mat
              JB Weld Kwik (5min Epoxy)
              Liquid Tape (Electrical brush-on tape)
              Old 200W Inverter (Always on)
              Free wire from old cleaner hangers (Thanks to local 2.25 Cleaners
