Charging stations[edit]

ChargePoint Home - This is a small home charger that won an Edison Award for new product innovation and human-centered design.[1]

CT4000 Family - The CT4000 is intended for property owners, businesses and municipalities providing for charging stations for their employees, customers, residents and fleets. [2]

CPE 100 and CPE 200 - ChargePoint Express DC fast chargers offer fast charging for most DC-capable electric vehicles. With an embedded AC-to-DC converter, they directly charge the vehicle battery and can charge some EVs in less than 30 minutes. Express stations are particularly suitable for short dwell time parking, freeway corridor locations and quick turnaround fleet charging. They can also be installed in workplaces to complement CT4000 stations for employees who need a quick charge.[3][4]

CPF25 Family - The CPF25 is designed for select fleet and multi-family applications. For fleets, CPF25 stations are suited for depot charging. For multi-family communities, CPF25 stations are intended for personal charging in assigned parking spots.[5]

Projects[edit]

ChargePoint announced a liquid-cooled modular 400 kW concept called "Express Plus" in January 2017.[6]
