About Char.gy

Char.gy manufactures and operates lamppost-mounted, on-street residential electric vehicle charge points. Because there is no need to dig up the pavement – the charge points’ electricity supply is from the lamppost feed – installation is faster than with a conventional unit.

The company’s units use a Type 2 inlet, and charging at up to 7.7 kWh is possible where infrastructure allows. There are currently 3 Char.gy points on Zap-Map, with 3 connectors available for network customers.
