Bosch announces new Level 2 and DC chargers

Automotive supplier Bosch has released two new EV chargers, both fully UL and cUL compliant to ensure safety.

The EV300 Level 2 charging station is “an affordable compact indoor/outdoor EV charger.” It has a short 16-foot cable to reduce clutter and the potential for tangling in areas with limited space, such as a garage. “The simple and flexible layout allows users to easily install the product as a permanent wall-mount plug-in charger,” says Bosch.

No app is required to charge. Instead, owners can pre-set charging times and durations in the vehicle. The EV300 displays battery status with a blinking light.

The EV3000 DC Fast Charger is designed for sites such as workplaces, public parking lots, dealerships and fleet facilities.  It exceeds IP 55 standards, and allows safe charging indoors or outdoors in all weathers.

“As electric vehicles become more prevalent on the road, Bosch is working to create more EV solutions,” said Jeff Hudnut, EV Product Manager at Bosch, “EV drivers want convenience, and the EV300 and EV3000 offer that for both at-home and commercial/public settings. The new chargers provide significantly faster charging that can be done anywhere, increasing convenience without sacrificing safety.”
