Flextron Launches FlexGrid and FlexStack: 10-Minute EV Charging with Battery Pack
India’s first battery-integrated DC charger, FlexGrid, is unveiled by Bengaluru-based EV firm Flextron. The battery-integrated DC charger aims to charge two- and three-wheelers in under 10 and 15 minutes, respectively, for battery systems in two-wheelers up to 3 kWh and three-wheelers up to 8 kWh.
Companies wishing to adopt its rapid charging won’t have to deal with the inconvenience of grid or power upgrades because FlexGrid has a growing output capability of between 25kW and 40kW with an input of 7.5kW.
Due to EVs’ ability to charge with FlexGrid in under 10 minutes without the need for grid modifications, the EV charging industry has seen enormous growth.
Ameen Khan, CTO of Flextron, said, “We are thrilled to launch India’s first battery-integrated DC charger, FlexGrid. With the new chargers, the company is set to further its credibility as a proud Made In India brand in the ever-growing EV sector. The rapid charging infrastructure is a remarkable development that holds immense potential to revolutionize the way it drives and would eventually transform our transportation landscape. The key to driving widespread electric vehicle adoption lies in the promotion of smaller batteries because their capability of quicker charging and delivering optimal mileage is an exciting prospect that aligns with the goal of making EVs even more convenient, efficient, and sustainable. This approach is expected to gain more traction in the market compared to larger battery packs, which may offer higher mileage but necessitate significantly longer charging times. The EV industry can indeed contribute significantly to a more sustainable transportation future.”
Flextron is a Bengaluru-based startup that provides electric vehicle charging solutions for residential, commercial, and fast charging stations. It was founded in 2021 by five co-founders who have a vision of building the densest network of EV charging stations across India.
Flextron uses a hosting-partner model, where it partners with operators at essential slots such as hotels, petrol pumps, midways, shops, restaurants, etc. to install, monitor and maintain EV charging stations. Flextron also offers smart EV charging stations and software for all businesses that want to adopt EVs through the deployment of EV charging infrastructure globally
