Kempower relieves EV drivers’ queue anxiety by launching a new adaptive voltage charging solution
One of the biggest challenges currently facing the e-mobility sector is EV drivers’ queue anxiety, with long charging times and limited available charging stations sometimes leading to lengthy queues at charging hubs. As a result, EV manufacturers are increasingly developing EVs with 1000V batteries to enable faster charging and reduce queue times. This is a significant step-change from the previous market standard of 500V or less for private EVs.
Kempower has responded to the changing market by developing a new fast-charging solution that optimizes the higher power potential of the new batteries coming onto the market. The new feature increases the company’s dynamic charging options, which allows charging capacity to be shared between EVs at the same charging hub and optimizes charging curves. The new adaptive voltage charging solution further enhances these benefits by enabling chargers to take full advantage of higher-voltage batteries, resulting in even quicker charging times for customers.
Although the solution has been designed to serve EVs with a battery voltage capacity of up to 1000V, it can work with voltages up to 500V. Even though there are not many EVs with 1000V capacity batteries currently on the market, Kempower is ensuring that its solution is futureproofed for further advances in battery technology.
Commenting on the new solution, Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower, said:
“Our customers already love our flexible dynamic charging, so we’re thrilled to be able to enhance their charging experience even further with this new solution. What makes this adaptive voltage charging solution so special is that it is fully sustainable. It works with batteries of up to 1000V – which aren’t even on the market yet – yet also benefits drivers of EVs with batteries below 500V. We’re alleviating queue anxiety for all EV drivers – everybody wins.”
Kempower is presenting the innovative adaptive voltage charging solution at EVS35, the world’s largest EV event, between June 11th – 15th in Oslo. The solution will become a standard feature of all the company’s deliveries from the third quarter of 2022. Furthermore, any existing Kempower charging system can be retrofitted with adaptive voltage charging as part of an upgrade package.
