Dcbel home fast charger

Post by spod »

Just ran across this unit, it can handle 15kW of PV input, and charge your EV at up to 15kW at home over AC or DC, with DC bidirectional capability (depending on vehicle I expect) for backing up your house from your EV etc, https://www.dcbel.energy/our-products/#whydcbel

Anyone heard anything about this other than the press release/website?

Oh, and forgot, it can theoretically charge two EVs at once.

US$7k is actually pretty cheap considering it is a 15kW dual EVSE with bidirectional capability, 15kW grid-connect solar inverter, UPS etc, it pretty much does everything.

No, single phase 240V, or split phase 120 to get the 240V, it's all in the datasheet.
