Networked Chargers to Be Priced from $499 to $749 This Summer
The networked ChargePoint Home, described as “a smart and beautiful home electric vehicle charger,” is to be available later this summer via Amazon for prices ranging from $499 to $749.
“ChargePoint Home delivers the same seamless charging experience ChargePoint users have come to count on at work and around town – and now it’s conveniently available in a driver’s own garage,” ChargePoint CEO Pasquale Romano said in a release.
“A wifi enabled, networked, EV charging station gives drivers freedom by allowing them to remotely start, schedule and set reminders for charging, all through their mobile app,” he said.
Two Power Levels
The Campbell, Calif.-based company claims its ChargePoint Home to be “the most advanced home EV charger on the market offering speed, convenience and intelligence all in an ultra-sleek and durable design.”
Pricing varies based on power level, installation type and cord length: the 16-amp variant can deliver 12 miles of range per hour while the 32-amp unit can deliver about 25 RPH. Cords are available in 12, 18, and 25 feet. ChargePoint Home can be installed either indoors or outdoors, is available in a plug or hardwired version, and has a universal J1772 connector.
ChargePoint Home is integrated with a driver’s ChargePoint account so users can track their residential, public and workplace charging via a mobile app. Drivers can also view their energy usage and how many miles they’ve added during a charging session depending on their car.
Also this year, ChargePoint announced a Multi-Family Home Service for apartment and condominium EV charging.
