Charger developer ChargePoint (Campbell, CA) has launched a flexible home EV charger that can deliver up to 50A for the North American market. 

The Home Flex allows drivers to charge any EV up to 9 times faster than a standard wall plug, delivering up to 37 miles of electric driving range per hour. Adjustable current in the charger supports the needs of any EV and can be matched to any home’s electrical supply today and into the future. 

“ChargePoint Home Flex transforms the home charging experience, providing an unmatched combination of power and flexibility never before made available on the market. With adjustable charging speeds, smart features and a thoughtful, safe and reliable design, ChargePoint Home Flex will revolutionize the home charging market and put the power into the hands of the drivers, where it belongs,” said Colleen Jansen, Chief Marketing Officer at ChargePoint.

Home Flex uses the universal J1772 connector so it can charge any EV on the road today and it has the flexibility to charge at the right speed for drivers. Through the ChargePoint mobile app, drivers can select the right amperage and charging speed from 16 up to 50 A. Unlike other home chargers, Flex’s adjustable current allows drivers to save money on electrical upgrades by choosing the charging speed that works with their home’s electrical supply today while having the flexibility to support increased electrical supply in the future.

The charger can be installed indoors or out and is available as a plug-in station supporting NEMA 14-50 or 6-50 plugs. It can also be hardwired by an electrician.
