Probably nothing since it doesn't have an inductor in it (i.e., a coil).

Did anyone ever receive a Plugless wireless charger? What is the status of this company?

Wireless charging would be great for me. I live in a condo. I don't know if the Board of Trustees will ever approve a charging station on a post near my parking spot and they certainly won't let me run a thick extension cord across the lawn and sidewalk. If the charging coil could be flush with the pavement (to allow unobstructed snow plowing) it might be unobtrusive enough to pass muster.

Of course, that means the coil in the car could have to be lowered for charging. An advantage to that is, as the coil is lowered it could also move horizontally to improve alignment and efficiency.

Hawaii passed a law that prevents condo boards and apartment complex owners from blocking the installation of an EV charging circuit if sufficient electrical capacity exists and the condo or apartment resident gets all necessary government, condo board, or apartment owner approvals, pays for the installation and maintenance of the circuit, and holds the condo association or apartment owner harmless should damage result. You might check whether your state has a similar law.

Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like Massachusetts doesn't have such protections BUT BOSTON DOES:

On January 2, 2019, the Governor signed into law a Home Rule Petition for the City of Boston establishing the “right to charge” for condominium unit owners. The new law allows Boston condominium unit owners to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations on or near their parking spaces, subject to reasonable restrictions which the condominium association may impose. The new law will take effect February 1, 2019.
That provides some good precedent, at least.
