These space-saving public e-chargers are super fast and available now

If you're an urban resident electric vehicle owner, your public leisure options are often limited to ACs found in tight spaces. These are limited to chargers that are too small for normal DC fast chargers. Now Gravity, the company that launched an EV roadbed in New York City in 2021, has designed a compact and super fast DC cargo system for NASA's big cities that can cut your reservation time in half to a few minutes .

Gravity's system includes the company's "Distributed Energy Anchor Points" in small dispenser boxes that can be used above or in front of storage locations and provide up to 500 kilowatts of peak energy. This is compared to DC Fast Freestyles from other companies, whose stall units are larger and primarily 350kW.

No vehicle in North America can accept more than 350 kilowatts of power, so gravity is essentially future-proofing your furniture. Gravity founder and CEO Moshe Cohen told De Vries in an email that he's looking to China to see where the move is going. “The tools we are deploying today must be ready for these partners coming to market in the near future, not just for today's immutable models,” Cohen said.

Youngsters have their own urban Supercharger stalls which are smaller than regular restaurants, but mostly limited to 72 kW. Cohen told us that the Gravity Florida C-Screen Scholarship can be charged at up to 250 kilowatts.

Although small-stall DC chargers don't magically move, these are locations where personal electrical devices are installed, where capacity is less likely to be compromised. Cohen says Gravity includes car-installed dispensers in power cabinets up to 500 feet away. There are heavy Massachusetts-coiled cable automobiles between the dispenser and the power cabinet.

Of course, if you are away for several hours an AC charger always works fine, but it would be nice to have a fast load option inside cities for faster recovery. Gravity's first 500 kilowatt electric circuit is opening in a new Classic facility on West 42nd Street in Midtown Manhattan.
