CHARGE+ZONE to launch two new models of Type 2 AC chargers in September 2021

Vadodara based EV Charging solutions company CHARGE+ZONE is set to launch two new Type 2 AC Chargers next month. The start-up is targeting residential and commercial complexes, corporate campuses and real estate properties for these upcoming OCPP enabled chargers.

About the chargers

The chargers are compatible with the currently available and upcoming electric cars in India such as Tata Tigor EV, Tata Nexon EV, MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona Electric. The two chargers are named AC Type 2 Max (Video Wall) Charger and AC Type 2 Mini (8″ Digital Screen) Chargers respectively. Both are floor mounted and designed to offer protection from over temperature, over/under voltage, short circuit and surge protection. The chargers will allow user authentication through QR code, RFID and OTP.

Here’s a quick look at the main specifications:

The video wall charger is a dual gun Type 2 AC charger that provides a power output of up to 7.7 kW. The charger is unique in the sense that it is the first product in the Indian market that allows for still and video media to play on the touchscreen. The other digital screen charger is again a dual gun charger that will allow 2 vehicles to charge simultaneously with a max power output of 7.7 kW.

Kartikey Hariyani, CEO of CHARGE+ZONE, feels that the video wall charger will help alleviate some of the concerns about the viability of EV charging infrastructure given the current volume of electric cars in the country and also enable the charging station owners to integrate more revenue streams such as advertising into the business. CHARGE+ZONE team also said that they have been receiving significant interest from many stakeholders and have set a sales target of 1,000 units within the year 2021.
