Chaevi unveils 400 kW DC charger for North America; NACS and CCS

South Korea-based Chaevi, a leading manufacturer and operator of EV charging equipment and services, announced through Chaevi America the availability of its new 400kW all-in-one DC EV charger for the North American market.

This DC fast charger provides simultaneous charging from two ports interchangeable with the CCS1 and NACS connector configurations. Its all-in-one design enables deployment in smaller spaces with lower installation costs than other fast-charging solutions requiring power cabinets and dispensers separately.

The ultra-fast DC charger has a maximum of 500-amp liquid-cooled cables for optimal conduction and faster charging, even on low-voltage vehicles. It includes remote hardware reset and diagnostics for serviceability and operation efficiency.

Consistent with other Chaevi high-speed chargers, it offers multiple payment options with RFID (e-card), credit cards, or an app, supports OCPP 1.6 and 2.0.1, and is plug-and-charge - ISO 15118 compliant.

For an improved user experience, this DC fast charger is equipped with a 15-inch LCD high-contrast touchscreen. The charger will feature a CES innovation-awarded waitlist system when the system becomes commercially available.

The product announcement and North American availability come as most US states are preparing for DC fast charger infrastructure deployments through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program funding. In addition, according to a study by S&P Global early last year, 172,000 DC fast (Level 3) public chargers will be required by 2030 to support the growth in EVs. The ultra high-speed charger is expected to be fully NEVI-compliant by Q2 2024 and is available for pre-order now to provide the rapidly growing market with reliability and flexibility.

Chaevi is a leading EV charging manufacturer that owns and controls the entire technology stack: hardware, software platform, and owner operator across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East since 2016. A leading EV charging station manufacturer and EV charging software innovator, Chaevi was awarded the 2023 CES Innovation Award for its advanced EV charging system reservation platform and was awarded again for its license plate recognition technology in 2024.
