Kempower launches the most user-friendly AC charger on the market

Leading EV charging technology provider, Kempower, brings AC charging to the market. The company launches Kempower AC Satellite to host the unique user experience electric car drivers love. The Kempower AC Satellite is a stand-alone EV charger and has the same design and display as the familiar Kempower DC Satellite. The new charging satellite has been developed mainly for the AC charging fields for hybrid and fully electric cars, but is also suitable for other electric vehicles, e.g., for electric buses.

The most valuable feature for everyday electric car drivers is Kempower AC Satellite’s cable management system. This allows electric car drivers to connect their car to AC charging without having to dig their own cable out of the trunk. Plus, the cable is easy to lift and manage due to the support by springs.  

Kempower charging satellite cables never lie on the ground and therefore stay clear from snow, ice, and slush. Even people with physical disabilities or lack of mobility – like those in a wheelchair or pregnant for example – find it easy to move the spring-loaded cables. The spring not only supports the cable, but also makes it easier to park the car since the spring allows the cable to bend in different directions. 

“AC charging is something that has been asked from us for a long time. Our own staff tested the AC charging satellite at Kempower headquarters last winter and fell in love with it. Something as small as cable management is a big deal in a busy life, especially when the weather is cold or wet. Now we want to offer the same user-experience to all EV drivers, including hybrid car drivers.” 

Jussi Vanhanen, Kempower’s Chief Market Officer.   

“In addition, we can now offer more versatile charging systems: Kempower AC Satellite can be placed on the same charging field with Kempower DC Satellites, and connected to Kempower ChargEye, allowing a wide range of customization options” Vanhanen continues.   

Kempower will start to deliver AC Satellites immediately as part of the company’s scalable and modular charging offering. All Kempower AC Satellites are produced at Kempower’s new factory in Lahti, Finland.
