InstaVolt upgrades its EV charge points to reduce charging times
Over 200 of the British firm’s existing docks are to be upgraded from 50kW to 125kW
Charge point network InstaVolt has announced an upgrade program for over 200 of its existing chargers, which will see charge speeds increased from 50kW to 125kW - significantly reducing charging times for EV drivers.
The upgrades will be carried out over the next six weeks and will be finished by the end of March 2023.
Once the program is complete, InstaVolt claims it will have the largest ultra-rapid network in the UK, with more chargers capable of delivering charging speeds of 100kW or higher than any other public network.
Customers can track the progress of its upgrades to its ChargePoint CPE250 chargers via InstaVolt's social media channels or through the InstaVolt app or digital EV platforms such as Zap-Map.
Adrian Keen, CEO of InstaVolt, said that the upgrades will reduce charging times and allow drivers to get back on the road sooner, subject to their car being capable of accepting charging speeds of more than 50kW.
The upgrades are part of InstaVolt's commitment to growing the UK's charging infrastructure and improving the reliability and customer experience for EV owners.
The company has also recently expanded its network by adding additional chargers to existing high footfall locations to support drivers as the number of EVs on the road continues to grow.
The move comes as the British firm aims to provide up to 10,000 rapid chargers across the UK by 2023.
