    May 31, 2024
    The electric vehicle revolution has swept the world, and those who are the first to take advantage of it have gained an experience never before experienced in driving a fuel vehicle. Thanks to the instant torque of battery power, electric vehicles start and accelerate faster and are more responsive. Compared with traditional complex internal combustion engines, the electric motors of electric vehicles are simpler, so the control feeling is more stable and precise. In addition, EVs produce almost no noise when driving, making the driving experience more peaceful and comfortable. So, if anyone asks them about the driving experience, these drivers who have switched to EVs will tell you: It’s COOL! However, if you then ask about the unavoidable charging experience, many people may hesitate. That's it, even though electric cars have gained a large number of fans because of their driving experience, electric car charging has always struggled to gain high recognition. This can be sensed from the satisfaction surveys sponsored by many utilities or charger companies. In the final analysis, here are 5 main factors that consumers really consider regarding EV charging.  1.Charging Speed Consumers hope that the speed (time) of charging an EV is as fast as refueling a gasoline car - this is a direction that both charging technology and EV technology need to strive for. We need to understand one fact: charging speed is related to both the charging infrastructure and the charging capacity of vehicles. It's not enough to achieve fast charging with just one of them. High-power DC fast chargers are favored by EV owners because they can output large amounts of power in a short time. Especially during long-distance travel, less waiting time undoubtedly encourages them. As a pioneer China charging cable factory, Workersbee actively caters to market demand. The new generation CCS2 charging connector, utilizing Liquid Cooling technology, has reached a peak output of 700A. Charging for five minutes can increase the range by over 200 km. The stable and efficient charging performance has also earned it a high-standard CE certification. 2.Charging Convenience Drivers' dissatisfaction with Public Charging Infrastructure probably stems from the lack of available chargers when they need to charge. The number of chargers is far below people's needs, meaning coverage is not ideal. Surveys of electric vehicle charging habits show that charging may occur at High-power chargers (HPC) on highway corridors, curbside chargers in streets, chargers in public or workplaces, and a large portion at home. Workersbee's Portable Electric Vehicle Chargers, whether it's the screen-equipped FLEX CHARGER, ePORT, DuraCharger, or the screenless Soapbox series, have received high praise from car owners due to their high compatibility, lightweight, stylish appearance, and intelligent operation.   In addition to requiring available and accessible chargers, drivers need a platform that can quickly find available chargers when their battery levels are low. This may require the joint efforts of maps or various charging network providers. 3.Charging Safety The safety of the electric vehicle charging process involves multiple aspects. Consumers expect charging equipment to have high safety standards, with the charging system being safe, reliable, and stable. Ensuring that various safety issues such as leakage and fire do not occur during charging. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure communication between vehicles and chargers to monitor battery status at all times, prevent overcharging, and maintain battery health. This also requires regular maintenance checks of charging stations to ensure the normal operation of each charger. Finally, in the payment process, payment security is crucial. Whether it's through card payments or platform deductions, consumers want station operators to ensure the security of their funds. 4.Charging Cost Compared to the rising cost of gasoline, charging costs are a factor that consumers consider when transitioning to EVs. Owners hope to minimize charging costs while maintaining charging efficiency, thereby reducing the cost of daily driving. This cost includes electricity costs related to electricity prices, charger types, and regions, as well as installation costs for those who want more convenient private chargers. However, there are various ways to help consumers reduce costs. For example, at charging stations with a stable customer base, using store value or offering tiered pricing discounts. Or, using utility time-of-use rates to encourage drivers to charge during off-peak hours, avoiding overload pressure during peak periods. You can also provide bonuses to consumers more loyal to the brand, to increase long-term engagement. Shared Chargers can be installed in residential areas with concentrated residents to share installation costs. 5.Compatibility With the continuous growth of the electric vehicle market, various charging standards also have their supporters.

  • Unlocking EV Charging Flexibility: A Comprehensive Guide to EV Charging Cables and Connectors Unlocking EV Charging Flexibility: A Comprehensive Guide to EV Charging Cables and Connectors
    Mar 28, 2024
    In Europe, the construction of charging infrastructure never stops. The common ones are non-tethered cable chargers. They are usually shown on charging maps as BYO chargers (Bring Your Own), which means drivers need to use their charging cables. On the surface, it seems like drivers need to prepare more. But in reality, this method is more flexible and free and improves the connection opportunities between the vehicle and the charger (the charger can match the cars with different inlets). For charging station operators, investment and maintenance costs are reduced, allowing more funds to be invested in the new chargers. More importantly, as a key part of sustainable transportation, this method is more environmentally friendly.   Learning more about EV charging cable for public charging stations will go a long way toward actively embracing electric vehicles. EV Charging Cable is designed to safely transport power from the charger to the EV, shouldering the important tasks of communicating, controlling, protecting, and transmitting power. The electric vehicle charging cable has four modes, among which Mode 3 connects the vehicle to the charging port of the AC charger. Some charging stations have tethered cables, and some are untethered--You need to carry a charging cable that matches the vehicle socket.     Depending on the vehicle, the plug types are type 1, type 2, and GB/T.   Type 2 To Type 1 The Type 1 end connects to the vehicle and the Type 2 end connects to the charger, which is suitable for electric vehicles with a Type 1 inlet. Support single-phase AC power can provide power output up to 7.4kW, and the maximum current can reach 32A. For North American, Japanese/Korean models, having such a charging cable means you can freely charge EVs at various public charging stations or wall boxes. Of course, if there is a need for fast charging, then DC charging may be more suitable. Because DC Fast Charging Cables need to transmit larger currents, they are often thicker and heavier than Level 2 Charging Cables (AC), so they are tethered to the charger. When facing a high-power DC charger and only a CCS2 connector is available at the charging station, the driver does not have to be frustrated if a CCS2 to CCS1 adapter is available.     The CCS2 to CCS1 adapter from Workersbee, an EV charging cable supplier, can easily connect different standard chargers and electric vehicles, and meets the needs of fast charging, providing a high current of up to 150A. The terminal temperature rise test is less than 50K, the protection level can reach IP54, and it has passed CE certification. The cable is made of TPU for flexibility and durability, adding more opportunities for charging accessibility.   Type 2 To Type 2 Suitable for type 2 vehicles. Available in single-phase 7.4kW, and three-phase 11kW and 22kW. The charging efficiency of an electric vehicle also depends on its onboard charger's charging capacity and the charger's power. As a classic example, if you use an 11kW (16A) cable and choose a 22kW charger to charge an electric car, but your car is single-phase, you will only get 3.7kW of power. It's more like the Cannikin Law. Therefore, the selection criteria for the power of the cable depends more on your car.   Workersbee has developed multiple generations of type 2 ev charging cable products. From the Gen1.0  to the latest Gen2.3, the R&D team has consistently focused on technological innovation and improving user experience.     From terminal rubber covered to ultrasonic welding, from cable management optimization to dustproof, moisture-proof, and waterproof “Smart Cap” design, each iteration not only improves the looks of the products but also makes a leap in the charging experience. The newly launched EV charging cable 2.3 adopts a double protection design. In addition to the terminal parts, the cable tail sleeve is also rubber-covered. The protection level reaches IP55, waterproof and anti-bending, with a longer service life. The new cable management solution also takes portability and storage friendliness to a new level. It has passed TUV/CE/UKCA certification. The cable length can be customized. We provide 5m, 7m, and 10m ev charging cable options, or customized according to your requirements. With the same cable length, a 22kw ev charging cable is heavier than a 7kW one.   Type 2 To GB/T As China's EVs gradually gain more seats in the market, the demand for GB/T connectors is also increasing. Similarly available in single-phase and three-phase options, with a maximum power of 22kW. Although the GB/T connector is similar to the Type2 connector, they are almost opposite. Therefore, the plugs connecting the car and the charger are both male. This is very different from type 1 and type 2 car models.   Market Insights · Detachable cables are widely used in the European market, which greatly improves the flexibility and reliability of driver charging and reduces the risk of damage to fixed cables. North America is still in the early stages of development and may become the future development direction. · Cable length is a double-edged sword. A longer cable means heavier, making it more difficult to carry and store; but it can also mean more flexible charging. If it is a 10m ev charging cable (or 15m or more), then you may not need to worry about the distance between the car's charging inlet socket and the charger outlet socket when you stop to charge. · As a frequently used charging product, durability is a major feature standard in the market. From plug connectors and cables to often-bent cable tails, it is a major test of the manufacturing capabilities of EV charging cable supplier. · Recommending the right electric vehicle charging cables based on consumer needs to obtain the best charging performance is critical to improving the user experience of EVs. Fully understanding the match between cable length, material, electrical parameters and other information and consumer needs will make your business better.   Conclusion As the main part of the European charging market, EV charging cables connect vehicles and chargers. EV Charging Connector Types at one end of the vehicle depend on the vehicle charging port type. It can be divided into type1, GB/T, and type2, respectively suitable for North American/Japanese/Korean models, Chinese models, and other models in Europe. With a professional R&D team, solid production capabilities, and testing, Workersbe is constantly committed to providing consumers with high-quality and reliable charging cables and promoting the development of the electric vehicle charging industry.

  • Power Up: A Guide to Charging Speed of Different Types of Chargers Power Up: A Guide to Charging Speed of Different Types of Chargers
    Mar 21, 2024
    The rapid development of electric vehicles is inseparable from the support of EVSE chargers. Charging an Electric car takes more than refilling a gas car from empty to full. Meanwhile, different types of chargers provide different charging speeds. The difference ranges from more than 20 minutes to dozens of hours. If more car owners encounter the latter, the popularity of electric vehicles will stall.     We need to understand the charging speeds of different types of chargers to ride the wave of electrified transportation.   What factors may affect charging speed 1. Charger types: They can be roughly divided into AC chargers, which charge relatively slowly, and DC chargers, which charge faster. AC is further divided into Level 1 and Level 2, which will be explained below. 2. Charger output power: A charger with greater output power will deliver more power to the car per unit time and charge faster. 3. EV battery capacity: It determines how much energy can be stored. Larger batteries will take longer to recharge. 4. State of Charge: The current SOC of the battery is closely related to the Charging Speed. In the range of 20%~80%, you will get better charging efficiency. 5. Vehicle charging capacity: The efficiency of the onboard charger (AC charging) and Battery Management Systems (DC charging) will also affect the charging speed, and the performance of each car is different. The car and the charger will have current and voltage limitations that need to be matched to transfer energy. 6. Temperature: Whether too cold or too hot can affect charging speed and battery performance. Cold may inhibit or prevent charging, while high temperatures may slow charging due to thermal management. In addition to the above, factors such as battery aging, other electrical loads during charging, etc. can also affect the charging speed.   Types of Chargers   Level 1 Charger (AC) The slowest but most convenient AC charger that plugs directly into a standard 120V household outlet for charging. The output power ranges from 1 to 1.92kW, charging approximately increases by 3-5 miles per hour, and it takes roughly dozens of hours to refill a BEV. It's frustrating, and perhaps why many consumers don't initially consider EVs. But it is suitable for car owners who have low commuting needs and can charge at home overnight.   Level 2 Charger (AC) Provides up to 19.2kW power via 240V, greatly improves charging speed compared to Level 1 chargers. It is the favorite type of charger for EV owners when balancing many aspects (charging speed, charging cost, battery health, etc.). It is often used for charging at homes, or in public places such as workplaces, shopping districts, or roadsides. Because drivers usually park in these places for a long time. Typically, Level 2 chargers can add 10-50 miles of range per hour, making it easy to fully charge an electric vehicle in a few hours or overnight. Aside from fixed wall box Level 2 chargers or EV Charging Stations offering Level 2 charging in residential areas or public spaces, many drivers are now opting for Portable Electric Vehicle Chargers. Not only can they provide Level 2 charging speeds, but they are also mobile and portable, making them convenient for drivers to recharge on trips. The portable chargers of Workersbee, a long-established EVSE manufacturer, provide a variety of product models to choose from. They are lightweight, stylish, easy to operate, and have reliable charging and protection performance. The powerful control box provides diversified Smart Charging Solutions.     DC Fast Charging The DC fast charger converts the AC power from the grid into DC power and directly delivers it to the battery for storage, making charging more efficient. It usually provides 25-400kW of power, which makes it possible to charge the battery to 80% in as quickly as 20 minutes. Different power levels also mean huge differences in charging time.   Because of high electrical requirements and high construction and maintenance costs, DC fast chargers are usually established along highway corridors and at public charging stations. It is more suitable for road trips and drivers who want to gain energy quickly.   The most popular High-Power Chargers today are none other than Tesla. Its Supercharger can add 200 miles of range to an electric vehicle in just 15 minutes. Powered by high reliability, high efficiency, and a comfortable charging experience, it dominates the North American charging market.  Since Tesla opened the NACS charging standard at the end of 2022, EVSE manufacturers have actively poured into the NACS connector market.   Workersbee's R&D team quickly established a product project team last year to develop AC and DC plug products based on the NACS charging standard, which will be launched soon. We are deeply committed to Fast Charging Technology, further enriching our product models and expanding sales areas. With innovative, high-quality, and diversified R&D and production systems, we have built an outstanding DC fast-charging product matrix.     Wireless Charging Wireless Charging uses electromagnetic induction to transmit electrical energy to the vehicle's battery without the cable connections. Charging speed depends on the Wireless EV Charging Pads's power and distance from the vehicle. Charging can be done while parked on the road or while driving, but the charging speed is not very high, the infrastructure requirements are very high and the investment is large. Although it sounds very free and wonderful, there is still a long way to go before the goal of better serving electric vehicles.   Conclusion AC Level 1 chargers can be powered by a regular household outlet and charge at 3-5 miles per hour. Suitable for charging at home or for low commuting requirements. Although it is the slowest charging solution, it does not require the additional cost of a charger installation. AC Level 2 is more suitable for charging in long stops, typically at homes and workplaces. A full night or daytime work hours can make the car almost fully charged. Installation costs and charging fees are low, and sometimes can take advantage of time-of-use rates. If there are higher charging needs and shorter charging time constraints, DCFC is a charging solution that will surprise drivers. They are often found on highways and urban public charging stations and are the fastest charging solution. The cost of building a site and charging is high, but it may only take 20 minutes to complete the charging task.   Market Insights Although the charging speeds of AC and DC are vastly different. But for the health of vehicle batteries, we know that AC slow charging is better. Not to mention that charging speed also depends on the vehicle itself. Most PHEVs do not work with fast chargers. Different charging methods have advantages and disadvantages and are suitable for different charging scenarios. Increasing charging speed significantly impacts car owners’ experience, which has far-reaching implications for the popularity of electric vehicles.   From the perspective of the charging market, we do not define a certain charger as always being the best choice. We can only say that it is more suitable for certain demand scenarios.   As a major player in the Electric Vehicle Charging market, charger and charging plug/cable manufacturers will also encounter some technical challenges during the research and development process when improving the charging speed of their products: l In DCFC, limitations and risks caused by the temperature rise of connectors, plugs, and cables; l High-frequency use of high-current fast charging may cause damage to battery health; l The surge in electric vehicle charging demand brings excessive grid load, etc. Workersbee has always paid attention to technological development and has made breakthrough innovations in multiple temperature control mechanisms, liquid cooling systems, and natural cooling technology. Solutions using new technologies have also gained attention and praise in the market. We are also working hard to find a better balance of charging speed and technology, as this is critical to both the owner's experience and the adoption of electric vehicles.   If your business requires solutions suitable for multiple charging scenarios, please discuss them with us to discover more possibilities.

    The widespread adoption of electric vehicles has been identified as a key measure to improve climate impact and build a sustainable future. The sales of electric vehicles have accelerated in the past years, but the corresponding charging infrastructure has not kept pace.   A significant reason why many people hesitate or worry about transitioning to electric vehicles is the lack of charging infrastructure.   For many drivers unable to own a home charger due to housing conditions, EVSE charging at the workplace is far better than public fast charging.   Enterprises can benefit from owning EVSE chargers in many ways. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of owning an EVSE charger for businesses. From providing safe and convenient charging that attracts talent and customers, increases revenue, and saves costs, to the positive impact on the environment and climate that enhances a company's reputation.   1. Attract talents and increase employee benefits A survey by an analytics company shows that when applying for jobs, more than 70% of people will prioritize companies that will take positive actions on climate change. They are more willing to work in environmentally responsible companies. More than 60% of people said they would be more willing to stay if they were satisfied with the company's positive impact on society and the environment. Those concerned about climate and environment are usually young, highly educated, and highly skilled elites.   If the company provides EVSE chargers, employees can charge at the workplace. There is no need to worry about running out of battery on the way home from work, reducing the negative impact of commuting on employees returning to the office work.   Also, free or discounted charging can be offered to employees. Act as an attractive employee benefit that attracts them back to the office and increases employee satisfaction.   2. Increase convenience and make everything easier We know that charging at home is the best option for charging cost (expense and convenience) and battery health. However many residents do not have such conditions. So the workplace becomes the second best place to recharge after the home.   Not only employees who drive electric cars can enjoy this convenience, but also company business cars. The same goes for customers or partners.   Car owners can charge their EVs during working hours without taking up extra time, and will no longer have range anxiety and the trouble of finding a charger.     3. Improve customer attractiveness A company that can provide EV charging is certainly attractive. This means that the company takes climate issues seriously and is willing to take action, which usually results in stronger employee loyalty. These are very eye-catching bonus points for customers or partners, which means they will receive better long-term services and can increase their market competitiveness through cooperation.   Companies can also register charging points on Google Maps by owning EVSE chargers, expanding their business visibility, and attracting the attention of new customers. The convenience of charging also increases customer satisfaction.   4. Make money bigger and increase revenue sources Adding EVSE chargers to the workplace can broaden the business scope and increase profit. Charging can be offered to customers as an additional service. You can provide charging services to existing customers, attract new customers through charging services, and cross-sell other services or products.     Regarding charging, discounts or priority access can be offered based on the customer's membership level. Charging fee rate thresholds can also be set to attract electric car owners who work or live nearby to charge here frequently.   In addition, the charger itself can serve as advertising assets, allowing companies or partners to display their products or services and generate advertising revenue and marketing exposure.   5.
