The Gecko would be best suited for an on-street residential environment as a long-dwell time solution.

Sensors

Which will feedback to a centralised system to provide real-time data on traffic, weather, and air conditions on a localised basis.

The GeckoOverview

Creatively designed to fit to existing street furniture, such as parking posts or bollards, the Gecko connects either as a single or paired socket to a subterranean master charger unit, monitoring and controlling power flow to the socket and vehicle. Our lowest visual impact solution, it is perfectly suited to on-street residential landscapes where its sympathetic design blends discreetly into the street scene. As are all our products, the Gecko is designed for environments where dwell time is long, offering a 7kW to 22kW charge. 

Frequently asked questionsFAQs

How are the Connected Kerb charge points ‘future-proof’?

The Connected Kerb Gecko consists of two components:  

  • Above the ground - a socket (the Gecko) which the EV charging cable plugs into 
  • Underneath the ground - a power and data pack, installed within a protective underground steel box, which delivers the charge and can host censors and future charging solutions, such as wireless / inductive charging
  • The post is attached to the box and the cables which connect the Gecko and the power unit run inside the post.    
The Gecko design is intended to help maximise the life of the charge point by: 
  • Minimising the risk of collision e.g. slim steel post instead of wide charging column  
  • Vulnerable electronic components are protected in the underground box 
  • Ease of maintenance 
  • Passive infrastructure can be activated later when demand soars without further need for disruptive construction

Are Connected Kerb charge points rapid, fast or slow?

Our charge points are 7kW to 22kW and are classified as slow - fast chargers, they’re designed specifically for areas where dwell time is long. 

What are the benefits of slower charging?

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.

How long does it take to repair a Connected Kerb charge point?

Because we house the important parts of our system beneath the pavement, the repair times for the above-ground socket can be as quick as 24 hours.

What does smart charging involve?

Smart charging undertakes localised load balancing to prevent any potential overload to the electrical grid.
