Here are some points of clarification about our electric car charging station and the Tesla charging station.
• The Charger is not the thing you plug into the wall, that’s a Connector. (This is what is on our poles) The Charger is on-board the car. The Connector sends Alternating Current (AC) into the Charger. The Charger then converts the power to Direct Current (DC) and sends it to the battery. You can configure your car with the Single Charger or Dual Chargers. If people are questioning why they are only charging at 40 amps, they need to reconfigure their cars to the Dual Charge Mode through the touchscreen. Dual Chargers allow twice the conversion capacity as the Single Charger when the power is available. Think of a charger like a faucet. Just like filling a bucket, you can only fill as fast as the water can flow through the faucet. To fill the bucket faster, you need a bigger faucet
• Our Wall (Pole) Connectors are installed on a 240 volt, 100 amp circuit and can be supplied with up to twice the amperage as an outlet. At maximum amperage, it provides two times more power than the Single Charger can process. This is where Dual Chargers come into play, doubling the charging capacity to 20 kW to match the output of the Wall Connector.
• In Dual Charging Mode, our chargers can provide 58 miles of range per hour of charge- if the car is set up correctly by the owner.
