Australian firm introduces a compact, dual-standard fast charger

Tritium, an Australian manufacturer of EV power electronic systems, has introduced what it calls “the world’s smallest footprint EV fast charger.”

The Veefil is the first release in what the company says will be a new line of charging solutions. It has a power rating of 50 kW, and maximum output current of 125 amps. It takes a supply of three-phase 400-415 volt power, at maximum current of 85 amps. With dimensions of 2000 (H) x 750 (W) x 330 (D) mm, and a weight of 165 kg, the unit is indeed compact [correction: the unit is not designed to be wall-mounted]. It’s designed for indoor and outdoor use.

As the battle of the fast charging standards rages in the US and Europe, EV drivers down under can go either way – Veefil supports CHAdeMO and SAE J1772 Combo, and comes with both plugs.

Tritium Managing Director Dr David Finn said, “The Veefil is extremely attractive to businesses that want to get involved with electric vehicles, but think it’s all too hard. The Veefil’s tiny space requirements, combined with its stylish and sleek design, makes it easy to visualize in front of your business and attracting customers.”
