Wallbox unveils new public charger with 15 minute charge time

Electric vehicle charging company Wallbox has unveiled its fastest ever public charging station, Hypernova.

The new technology was revealed at the recent IAA Mobility 2021 show in Munich and is billed as the company’s “most sophisticated” public charger yet.

According to Wallbox, the Hypernova can deliver up to 350kW that will charge an electric vehicle fully in 15 minutes, making it “faster than most other ultrafast chargers on the market.”

Hypernova also employs advanced software that allows it to optimize available power and adapt to the number of EVs connected, a feature that has been designed for public charging along highways and transcontinental road networks.

Enric Asunción, CEO and co-founder of Wallbox, said: “We are thrilled to unveil our fastest public charger to date, which can fully charge an electric vehicle in under 15 minutes. Hypernova will be a game changer in building fast public charging infrastructure, especially on highways where drivers need to recharge and keep going.”

Production and deliveries of Hypernova will begin in late 2022 with Wallbox’s other public charger, Supernova, also due to begin production later this year.

Eduard Castañeda, CPO and co-founder of Wallbox, added: “Our focus in building this suite of public charging solutions has been to help charge point operators increase their revenue while reducing maintenance costs and providing future-proof solutions. This, combined with the customer focus we put into all our charging solutions, ensures that our public chargers serve both our partners and the EV drivers who will use them day-to-day.”
