Coulomb ChargePoint unit provides 30 minute Electric Car Charging
Wouldn't it be amazing if you could take your electric car on a really long drive, say across the U.S.? Well it seems battery charging technology is moving in the direction where this may soon be possible. A new ChargePoint unit that Coulomb Technologies is developing with Aker Wade Power Technologies will provide fast Level 3 charging. This means that they will draw power from dedicated 480-volt, 125-amp circuits and will be able to deliver a full charge in possibly a half hour. Pretty impressive. However, this fast charging doesn't come without a drawback - such high powered, fast charging can have an impact on safety, battery life, reliability and durability.
