I'm pleased to confirm that thanks to the very positive response from members on this forum and securing supply of key charger components, that we will proceed to build and sell these chargers for Zero owners who are looking for a compact, lightweight fast charging solution.
We have secured the supply of a limited number of new high-quality rectifiers that are configured, integrated and packaged to make our single and double chargers. Until we secure more supply, this will limit production to ~20 double chargers or ~40 single chargers or some combination of both single and double chargers e.g. ~10 double chargers and ~20 single chargers.
We will release more details on the charger specifications and options (including photos), purchase process, support, warranty etc later in April.
In terms of availability, we will be targeting delivery of the first production chargers in June subject to additional locale testing in USA and Europe in May.
In regard to this testing, we are looking for one customer in the USA and one customer in Europe who would be willing to work with us to validate the performance of the charger in their locale. If you are interested in testing these chargers please PM or email me using my contact details on this forum
. The requirements for this testing are that you:
- pay the full purchase price of a double charger upfront;
- use the charger regularly during the testing period;
- test at various locations e.g both at home and at public charging stations; and
- provide weekly feedback until the end of the test period (4 weeks from receipt of the charger).
The test chargers will be double chargers as specified at the beginning of this topic. They key difference between these chargers and the final production versions will be finish - the test chargers will have a bare aluminium case (not painted / anodised). They will have the same one year warranty as the production chargers. At the completion of the testing period, as a thank you for your time to test and provide feedback, we will refund USD400 / EU375 from the expected purchase price of a double charger (USD1399 / EU1315) making an after refund price inc delivery of USD999 / EU940.
Thanks for your support
