GE EV Charger Actually Looks Good

Lookie here, Yves Behar of Fuseproject designed GE’s Wattstation –  a smart grid ready Level 2 charging station which means a 240 volt power supply that can be rapidly charged. The modular design makes each station future proof, allowing customers to easily upgrade as more options become available. This allows customers to stay current with the latest technology, while providing the ability for commercial property owners to qualify for LEED points.

On average the WattStation decreases EV charging time from 12-18 hours to as little as 4-8 hours compared to standard charging, assuming a 24 kWh battery and a full-cycle charge. How long before we start seeing these pop up all over cities? I’m so giddy to be alive during this great paradigm shift in transportation.

  • AL says:

    nice, but if they do not close areas or put cameras over there, the thin cables are all subject to vandalism, all intended to your and the others

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program () Portable USB cgrehars like the are very popular. I myself own a and it has been a lifesaver many times.The Duracell Mygrid USB Charger allows you to carry extra power for USB chargeable devices. It comes with attachments for both standard and micro USB charging, but can be adapted for others as long as you have a USB cord.Once I received it I plugged it into my laptop and allowed it to charge; this is why the Mygrid Charging Pad is not necessary for use. After it had charged fully I decided to test it out on my first which had about half of it’s battery life left. After plugging it in I could see the charge indicator on my Kindle light up and I left it for about an hour. When I came back to check on it, the indicator had gone from orange to green; the sign of a full charge success!The next test (again after charging up the Duracell charger) was on my iPhone. Because the iPhone charger is specific to Apple you will need the original white charger cord to use this. This time my phone was near dead when I started the charging and because I was curious about exactly how long this one would take to charge I kept a better eye on it. Normally on the wall charger it takes about 90 minutes for a full charge. At just about 107 minutes my phone registered as fully charged and that was good as the Duracell charger was nearly depleted.Overall I can definitely recommend this, especially knowing that there is no need to invest in the additional Charging Pad. Unless of course you would like to do so for re-charging convenience or use with several chargeable items. Because of it’s compact size, this is a great emergency power supply to carry for your cell phone and it will be appreciated if the need for it arises.

  • Heya! Stunning weblog! I have been a frequent website visitor (very much like addict ) on your website though I had a problem. I’m so not necessarily absolutely sure whether its the right web site to ask, but there are no spam comments. I receive comments frequently. Possibly can you help me? Thanks a lot!
