Chargemaster has launched Powercharge, a new cost-effective and compact electric vehicle charging point, designed specifically for workplace charging. The new Powercharge unit can provide businesses with a simple solution for open access workplace charging, without the need for keys or RFID cards.

Powercharge, available from just £795 + VAT, can be wall-mounted or floor-standing, in both cases providing two standard Type 2 charging sockets, which are compatible with every electric car and van on the market today.

David Martell, Chief Executive of Chargemaster said, “As the electric vehicle market in the UK continues to grow significantly, we are seeing an increasing number of enlightened businesses realising the need to provide charging points at their workplaces for fleet, staff and visitor vehicles. Powercharge provides a simple, robust and cost-effective charging solution for any business car park.”

The Powercharge unit is available in 7kW (30A) specification as standard, with 3.6kW (16A) available as an option, using a single-phase 230-volt AC electricity supply in either case. As with all Chargemaster charging points, Powercharge is manufactured in the UK.

The slim and strong unit is a design that is exclusive to Chargemaster, made from extruded aluminium and weighing just 11kg. Offering a compact width of 220mm, a depth of 120mm, and a height of either 830mm (wall-mounted) or 1,242mm (floor-standing).

Powercharge is easy and cost-effective to install by any competent and qualified electrician, and protects electric vehicles while they are charging with advanced overload protection and electric current management software.

The new Powercharge unit will appear for the first time on Chargemaster’s stand (C3-402 in Hall 3) at the LCV 2017 event from 6th to 7th September at Millbrook Proving Ground.
