FLO introduces new home chargers

FLO said it offers three smart charging flexible options, including FLO Home X3, FLO Home X6 and FLO Home X8.

FLO is introducing a home charger to meet the needs of EVs and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) vehicles from compact crossovers to heavy-duty pickups. The newest FLO Home EV chargers build on 15 years of private, public and commercial charging experience along with EV drivers’ feedback on home charging needs, the company said.

“In EV driver surveys, we found that EV drivers overwhelmingly want a home charger that is durable and backed by a warranty that protects their investment,” Louis Tremblay, FLO president and CEO, said. “With a multitude of home charging options, drivers want to know they have a trusted partner, like the FLO Home charger.”  

According to the company, features of the new FLO Home chargers include:

  • An impact-resistant enclosure that withstands hot and cold temperatures and corrosive climates;
  • A 25 ft. (7.62 m) cable that stays flexible and is built to withstand daily use;
  • Available with a choice of a J3400 connector (also known as NACS or the Tesla connector) and the J1772 connector;
  • Accommodates various homes and garages with multiple wiring, cable management and pedestal options;
  • Embedded heat sensors in both the vehicle-side connector and the dwelling-side plug help detect overheating issues, protecting the charger, vehicle and dwelling;
  • A limited warranty covering five years of residential use/one year of commercial use;
  • Smart charging via Wi-Fi on the FLO app.

FLO said it offers three smart charging flexible options, including FLO Home X3 which includes an industrial-grade thermoplastic enclosure and features a 50A/12kW output; FLO Home X6 which features a heavy-duty aluminum enclosure; and the FLO Home X8, which features 80A/19.2 kW output, the most allowed by a Level 2 charger in North America, along with a detachable holster.

Additionally, FLO Home chargers are supported by FLO’s app and the extended FLO network, the company said. FLO’s app allows a driver to schedule charging sessions and remotely lock or unlock their chargers. When not charging at home, FLO members have access to a network of more than 86,000 public chargers across North America.

The new FLO Home EV chargers go on sale this summer in the FLO store or from FLO’s distribution partners.
