    Connected Kerb launches its new on-street bollard style charge point for electric vehicles (EVs)

    Connected Kerb, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in the UK, have launched its new on-street bollard style charge point. The new Chameleon is designed to be used by electric vehicle drivers without their own driveways.

    The Chameleon is a bollard-style charging point, which has been designed and manufactured in the UK, and is one of the smallest and lowest impact charging solutions available for public on-street charging. It’s available with single or dual charge sockets in both 7kW and 22kW similar to Connected Kerb’s other chargers.

    The Chameleon, which stands under a metre tall, is made predominantly from recycled steel and is not subject to planning permission so can be installed quickly. Its low height also makes it accessible for wheelchair users.

    The new charger from Connected Kerb supports future technologies including 5G, internet of things (IoT) and air quality sensors. It uses the same modular design found on all Connected Kerb charging points with all the enabling infrastructure that contains key components sitting underground.

    Connected Kerb’s Chameleon combines power and data kerbside to provide reliable charging helping to connect cities and communities and is ideal for overnight charging.

    Chris Pateman-Jones, Connected Kerb CEO, said: “We’re committed to facilitating the widespread transition to electric vehicles for users who cannot charge their vehicle at home. Our latest charger design – the Chameleon –  is a real game-changer in the EV infrastructure market.

    “To pack so much technology into a small post with a dual socket is no mean feat and the solution is a credit to the product & innovation of the Connected Kerb team.”

    At the end of last year Connected Kerb announced its plans to install 190,000 public on-street electric car chargers in the UK, worth up to £1.9 billion, by 2030.
