Boost Charger

The FreeWire Boost Charger is a powerful battery-integrated DC charger for EVs. Easily connecting to existing electrical infrastructure, it can be set up without costly construction or permitting. With 160 kWh of battery capacity and 120 kW output, the Boost Charger is ready for current and next generation electric vehicles. Recharging with up to 22 kW from the grid, the Boost Charger enables ultrafast charging using the same infrastructure as L2 chargers and up to 40% lower cost of installation versus comparable fast chargers. Deliver high-quality power while significantly reducing costly demand charges utilizing the Boost Charger’s integrated energy storage.

Benefits:

Lower Energy Costs: energy-buffering technology can take advantage of off-peak electricity rates. (requires FreeWire AMPTM subscription)

Easy Setup: recharges from a single-phase or three-phase connection

Powerful: charge EVs at up to 480 miles of range per hour

Efficient: install up to six Boost Chargers with the same grid connection as one conventional charger

Dual Port: equipped with a CHAdeMO and a CCS port, the Boost Charger can charge two EVs simultaneously
