Anyone been able to contact Evatran Plugless Power recently?

Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:22 am

I've been trying for days now to contact them about some major issues with my system and no one is responding. The auto phone attendant just keeps saying that all advisors are currently busy and to leave a message, I've left 3 now. I've also tried emailing them multiple times with no success.

I read that they were recently acquired by some Chinese investors, I wonder if they are even still in business. Their Facebook page has also been removed, usually not a good sign either. My lease is ending soon and I need this equipment removed from my Leaf. I'm seriously about to just drive to their headquarters and demand service at this point.

Interesting, that prompted me to dig a bit more and I found these:

Not sure that happened. See below.

Acquisition of Evatran by China-based company 'off the table' due to regulatory environment
https://www.richmond.com/business/local ... 69e3f.html - from April 2018
Evatran Group hopes 'to have something new to report' soon about future at the maker of wireless charging stations
https://www.richmond.com/business/local ... f8bab.html - from Dec 29, 2018

Sounds like the company barely exists at this point, if at all.

Other than the few folks chiming in here, I've never heard of anyone who physically had such systems installed. I'd seen them at CES (e.g. at the Bosch booth years ago) but that's about it.

https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/evatran-group claims they're closed but who knows how accurate that is and how they determined the company is closed?

Out of curiosity, any news on this front?

I still have yet to meet anyone who has one. People posting about having one of these is exceedingly rare.

If anyone can help me I would be greatly thankful. I need a plugless owners manual. We’re can I find one? Also I just finally set up my plugless system (after being in my garage unused for two years. It powers up but doesn’t seem to charge or even recognize the car. Any suggestions?
