Connected Kerb launches new type of public charging point

Connected Kerb has today (29 April) launched a revolutionary new charging point for electric vehicle (EV) users without driveways.

The Chameleon is a new bollard-style charging point from Connected Kerb, designed and manufactured in the UK. It is one of the lowest impact and smallest dual charger solutions for public on-street charging in the market, equipped with the usual Connected Kerb technical capabilities.

Made predominantly from recycled steel, the Chameleon is a blend of visual ‘kerb’ appeal, smart technology and sustainable excellence and, standing at under one metre tall, is accessible for wheelchair users and not subject to planning permission – enabling a rapid rollout in streets across the UK.

It supports future technologies such as 5G, IoT and air quality sensors and follows the modular design of all Connected Kerb charging points with enabling infrastructure that contains key components sitting underground.

It can be installed before EV demand rises, reducing unused infrastructure and the need for further ground excavation for maintenance.

Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said: “We’re committed to facilitating the widespread transition to electric vehicles for users who cannot charge their vehicle at home. Our latest charger design – the Chameleon – is a real game-changer in the EV infrastructure market.

“To pack so much technology into a small post with a dual socket is no mean feat and the solution is a credit to the product and innovation of the Connected Kerb team.”

The new charger will be on display for the first time at Fully Charged Live at Connected Kerb’s stand (M12).
