1. An inductively coupled sequential power transmission system comprising:

  • a primary power source adapted for portable wearing by a user,a garment having an electrically conductive first electrical network mounted therein wherein said first electrical network has an infeed end mountable to, in electrical communication with, said primary power source, and outfeed nodes,a first set of electrically conductive primary coils electrically connected to said outfeed nodes,a first independent accessory having an inductively coupled sequential power transmission sub-system mounted thereon, wherein said sub-system includes a second electrical network having at least one electrically conductive conduit extending from an infeed end to an outfeed end,wherein at least one electrically conductive first intermediary coil is mounted at said infeed end of said second electrical network in electrical communication therewith and wherein at least one electrically conductive second intermediary coil is mounted at said outfeed end of said second electrical network,and wherein when said first independent accessory is in use by the user said at least one electrically conductive first intermediary coil is adjacent at least one primary coil of said first set of electrically conductive primary coils so as to inductively couple said at least one primary coil to said at least one first intermediary coil when the former is energized to thereby energize said at least one electrically conductive second intermediary coil, a second independent accessory having an electrically conductive secondary coil which is adjacent said at least one electrically conductive second intermediary coil when the first and second independent accessories are in use by the user so as to energize said secondary coil when said at least one electrically conductive second intermediary coil is energized, whereby an end use of said second independent accessory is energized by said energizing of said secondary coil.
