With the advocacy of low carbon travel and the popularization of new energy vehicles (NEVs), the demand of people for vehicle charging stations has been on the rise. LPC22 home-commercial smart charging station has been designed exactly for this, which aims to ease the problem of insufficient charging stations for NEVs in public places and to innovate a convenient, safe and visualized charging solution for users.

The product is compatible with multiple grid systems as well as various charging specifications for NEVs, and can intelligently manage the electric current according to home electricity load so as to automatically distribute the electric current of up to 80A to NEVs when ensuring battery safety. Its multi-protection system, together with one-button power cutoff, helps to avoid accidents caused by water and electricity leakage. LPC22 is able to access home photovoltaic energy storage system, and supports V2H to realize peak cut, which actively supplies power to the grid during on-peak periods and charges NEVs at off-peak periods with the grid as source. Such a design improves power utilization and reduces the pressure on the grid.

The eye-catching ambient light on the front highlights charging information (standby/charging in progress/charging completed) and visually shows it to users. For home use, the supporting APP informs users about the status of LPC22; for shared use, users can localize nearby LPC22 and make online charging reservations via the APP.
