Bosch has released two new electric vehicle chargers – the EV300 Level 2 EV Charging Station and EV3000 DC Fast Charger.
The EV300 and EV3000 are fully UL and cUL compliant. Bosch says the chargers provide vehicle owners with the opportunity to adjust charging settings to their liking. The EV300 charges up to four times faster than a standard plug outlet while the EV3000 charges up to four times faster than a standard Level 2 charging station, the company says.
Bosch describes the EV300 as an affordable compact indoor/outdoor EV charger featuring a 16-ft. cable. The company says this charger is constructed to provide a low-maintenance charging alternative. No app is required to charge. Instead, owners can pre-set times and length of charging in the vehicle and the EV300 informs battery status through a blinking light.
The EV3000 provides DC charging for a faster charge than standard AC charging stations. With the SAE J1772 CCS connector, the EV3000 is compatible with most battery electric vehicles in North America, the company says. It can charge a typical passenger vehicle anywhere between 20-80% in an hour. EV3000 exceeds IP 55 standards allowing safe charging indoors or outdoors in many types of weather, including rain, snow and sleet, Bosch says.
