Andromeda Power Introduces CHAdeMO Jumpstarter For EVs
Andromeda Power recently introduced its on-board fast charger called ORCA Inceptive.
Andromeda Power claims that this unit is “the only CHAdeMO Jumpstart For Electric Vehicles“.
But what does this CHAdeMO Jumpstart for EVs really means?
Well, it is device that is provided with two CHAdeMO plugs and it’s capable of transferring energy between the batteries of two EVs,
so owners can imperceptibly transfer energy from others EVs and drive forever free.
The device is specifically designed for fleet owners, roadside assistance companies, and service station providers to quick recharges to stranded EVs that have a CHAdeMO inlet.
ORCA Inceptive is small enough to fit in the Nissan LEAF’s trunk, yet it still has 50 kW of power.
If there is no one who would like to spare some kWh, ORCA Inceptive can be supplied juice from other power sources:
“At maximum performance the ORCA Inceptive recharges the battery of a Stranded EV in 5 minutes delivering 5 kWh energy (equivalent to 20 miles range). In addition to the Rescue EV battery, ORCA Inceptive may be powered from: 208V, 400V, 480V, AC, DC, gas or diesel generators, or the electric grid. Production is expected to begin in November 2013.”
After a short deliberation, we think that ORCA Inceptive could very well fit in the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV that has CHAdeMO and can rescue other EVs with its own energy, and then still have its ICE engine to drive in hybrid mode.
Production of ORCA Inceptive is expected to begin in the US in November 2013.
