A new DC fast charger that charges EV to 80% in 15 mins
A DC fast charger from a leading charger provider Tritium, an RT175-S smart charging system powers EVs to an 80 per cent charge in 15 minutes on an average. With ‘plug and charge’ one need not have a membership card, smartphone application or credit card reader to pay for their charge, instead, a charging session can be automatically and securely billed when the plug connects to the vehicles. This advance charging technology makes the charging process easier with improved customer data security. It is the first charger in the US market which can be plugged and charged.
