Best suited to on-street and long-dwell charging.
Which will feedback to a centralised system to provide real-time data on traffic, weather, and air conditions on a localised basis.
The Chameleon is a new bollard-style charging point from Connected Kerb, designed and manufactured right here in the UK. It is one of the lowest impact and smallest dual charger solutions for public on-street charging in the market. It can also be deployed by residential and commercial developers, workplace managers and fleet operators.
The Chameleon is simple to install and is available as a single or dual charge socket in both 7kw and 22kw.
As a flagship product for Connected Kerb, the Chameleon will strengthen the company’s position in the local authority space by offering first-class visual appeal and outlasting other public charging points in the EV industry.
The Chameleon is compatible with Connected Kerb’s existing enabling infrastructure with intuitive design and AC capabilities that aim to provide a seamless user experience for newbie and seasoned EV users alike.

Frequently asked questionsFAQs
Above the ground: a socket (in this case the Armadillo) which the EV charging cable plugs into
Underneath the ground: a power and data pack, installed within a protective steel box, which delivers the charge and can host sensors and future charging solutions, such as wireless / inductive charging
Protecting vulnerable electronic components in the underground box
Ease of maintenance
Passive infrastructure can be activated later when demand soars without further need for disruptive construction and additional materials
Our charge points are up to 7kW and are classified as slow - fast chargers, they’re designed specifically for areas where dwell time is long.
Slow charging places less stress on the vehicle’s battery and the electrical grid. It's also a 'quicker', more convenient way to charge if you know your dwell time is going to be significant. For example, plugging in when you get home in the evenings, going about your nightly routine, waking up in the morning with a charged car and no need to hang around waiting at a destination or fast charger.
Smart charging uses load balancing to determine the correct power distribution to prevent any potential overload to the electrical grid.
