Campbell, Calif.– Today, ChargePoint unveiled the world’s most attractive and advanced home EV charging station. ChargePoint Home is a break-through in EV charging, offering speed, convenience and intelligence to give EV drivers the seamless charging experience ChargePoint is known for in the comfort of their own home. One of the most notable features of the charger is its size, and ultra-sleek, durable design – about the size of your average tablet.
“ChargePoint has spent years perfecting commercial charging stations, and with over 20,000 charging spots, we have built the largest EV charging network in the world. With our entrance into the single family home market, we are giving even more people the most advanced tools needed to confidently and conveniently drive an EV,” said ChargePoint CEO Pasquale Romano. “Smart homes, smart phones and smart cars. It makes sense to connect them to create a user-friendly, efficient and complete charging system at home.”
With ChargePoint Home, drivers can charge up to 25 miles per hour and easily manage the charger from their smartphone. Some of the key features include:
ChargePoint Home plugs into a standard 240V outlet and has a universal J1772™ connector that is compatible with all cars and can be installed either indoors or outdoors. ChargePoint Home will be on the market this summer.
Media attending the Consumer Electronics Show can see ChargePoint Home and request interviews at booth #2815 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
