Australian-based Tritium has signed an exclusive US contract with ChargePoint to install Tritium’s Veefil DC fast charging stations. The shapely Veefil has a power output of 50 kW, and is available with both SAE Combo and CHAdeMO connectors.
The Veefil is designed not only to look cool, but to be light and compact. Its polycarbonate and aluminum construction gives it what the company says is the smallest footprint and lowest weight (364 lbs) of any 50 kW DC charger, allowing it to fit neatly at the end of a standard parking bay. A liquid cooling system is designed to make it robust over a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions.
“ChargePoint approached us because it was attracted by both the design and unique technology of the Veefil, plus the fact that it is extremely simple for the EV owner to use,” explains Tritium’s CEO, David Finn. “We were looking for a strong partner in the US which had excellent distribution and an established network throughout the country.”
“These stations can be used by any EV equipped with fast charging and will be installed in convenient locations where drivers need them most,” said Pasquale Romano, ChargePoint CEO.
