The article discusses the subject of wireless power supply for battery packs in electric buses. It presents the disadvantages and advantages of such a way to power the vehicle and charge the batteries. An attempt is made at analysing the economic legitimacy of use of this type of energy transfer method. The analysis is based on the annual course of the bus at the level of 70 000 km with the used battery pack whose capacity reaches 250 kWh. The assumed life of the system comprised of 2000 charging cycles. The characteristics of energy and losses was drawn up based on the entire life.
