FreeWire Technologies makes several flexible charging solutions, including Mobi, a battery pack on wheels that can be used to charge EVs away from fixed charging stations; and the Boost Charger, a charging station that uses an integrated battery as a buffer to deliver high power output without stressing the local power supply.
Now FreeWire has partnered with battery supplier Envision AESC, which will provide battery cells and modules for FreeWire’s EV charging and energy products. FreeWire uses Envision modules to create a proprietary battery pack for its portable power solutions.
FreeWire’s Boost Charger is designed to reduce peak power demand, lower charging providers’ electricity bills, allow power dispatch back to the grid, and enable EV charging when grid power is offline. It’s “an integrated infrastructure-light solution that virtually eliminates installation costs and can be deployed quickly at just about any location.”
The Boost Charger incorporates 160 kWh of battery capacity. It acts as a buffer, connecting to low-voltage grid power and outputting 120 kW to EVs. It features a compact footprint, and is designed to be easily redeployed if charging demand doesn’t materialize. If demand increases, new stations can be quickly added to meet customer needs.
FreeWire’s proprietary lithium-ion battery pack is certified to UL1973, and the entire system is certified to UL2202, UL2231-1, UL2231-2, and UL991.
“Given its ten-year track record of safety and reliability, Envision AESC’s battery technology was the perfect choice to incorporate into our industry-leading battery pack,” said Arcady Sosinov, CEO and founder of FreeWire Technologies.
