Under a newly signed agreement, ChargePoint will install Australia-based Tritium’s Veefil DC fast charging stations across the US.  The 50 kW Tritium stations are able to charge all cars equipped for DC fast charging, using the included SAE-Combo connector or a CHAdeMO connector.  Tesla drivers will be able to use the CHAdeMO connector with an adapter slated to go on sale shortly.

The stations will be installed on major routes across the country and will be part of the ChargePoint network of more than 21,000 EV charging stations.  ChargePoint recently partnered with Volkswagen and BMW to build express charging corridors on both the east and west coasts of the US.  The stations will be ChargePoint-branded, clearly marked as DC Fast stations and the connectors will be labeled so drivers know which is compatible with their car.

To use the stations, drivers just have to sign up for a ChargePoint membership.  Drivers can find charging stations and see their availability in real-time at or with the free ChargePoint mobile app.  To start a charging session, drivers wave their ChargePoint card in front of the station, use the ChargePoint mobile app or call the 1-888 number printed on the ChargePoint station.

Veefil is the only liquid-cooled fast charger, and delivers robust charging over a wide range of environmental conditions, including temperature, humidity and corrosive conditions, thereby increasing reliability and reducing maintenance.
