Connected Kerb, one of the of the UK’s leading providers of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure solutions, has launched a new charging point for EV users without driveways.
The ‘Chameleon’ is a new bollard-style charging point from Connected Kerb, designed and manufactured in the UK. It is one of the lowest impact and smallest dual charger solutions for public on-street charging in the market, and includes the same Connected Kerb technical capabilities the company’s users have come to expect and appreciate from its systems.
Made predominantly from recycled steel, the Chameleon is a blend of visual ‘kerb’ appeal, smart technology and sustainable design. Moreover, standing at under one metre tall, it is accessible for wheelchair users and not subject to planning permission.
“We’re committed to facilitating the widespread transition to electric vehicles for users who cannot charge their vehicle at home,” said Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb.
“Our latest charger design – the Chameleon – is a real game-changer in the EV infrastructure market. To pack so much technology into a small post with a dual socket is no mean feat and the solution is a credit to the product & innovation of the Connected Kerb team.”
The company’s new charger supports future technologies such as 5G, IoT and air quality sensors. It also follows the modular design of all Connected Kerb charging points with enabling infrastructure that contains key components sitting underground. This can be installed before EV demand rises, reducing unused infrastructure and the need for further ground excavation for maintenance.
