The EV charger startup first gained traction last November when it announced a 10,000-charger deal with Verizon. Now, it’s revealing it’s working on a technology that would allow EVs to plug in to any outlet.
Q Johnson, CEO of Plug Zen, said it’s the first of its kind.
“You pull it out of the vehicle, plug into any wall outlet, and charge the vehicle just as fast,” he said.
Plug Zen is not revealing much about how the technology works, citing imitator concerns. Johnson said one component makes it all work, calling it the “flux capacitor.”
“When a full patent application is in, then you can really see how it is,” Johnson said. “Right now, I can’t discuss.”
Johnson said the public can expect to see how the technology works in six to 18 months.
