EV technology developer Voltempo has launched a new charging system called HyperCharging, which it claims can deliver 1,000 kW of power, and can charge up to 24 vehicles at the same time.
HyperCharging technology is designed to serve the needs of service stations and fleets. According to the company, its modular system enables it to be installed faster than other charging systems, with lower installation costs.
Voltempo has installed a demonstration version of the new HyperCharging system at its Technology Design Centre in Birmingham, UK. The first commercial installation will take place in 2022 at a charging hub at the Tyseley Energy Park in Birmingham.
“Earlier this year, we announced a world first when we carried out a public demonstration in which we designed and installed a prototype battery in an electric vehicle and completely charged it in under six minutes,” said Voltempo CEO Michael Boxwell. “Our new HyperCharging system already gives up to 30% faster charging in current electric vehicles through dynamic power management. The demonstration showed that it will be able to charge the next generation of electric vehicles in a similar time that it takes to refuel a conventional, petrol-driven vehicle.”
