  • 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 Your Business:7 Benefits of Owning an EVSE Charger Power Up Your Business:7 Benefits of Owning an EVSE Charger
    Mar 14, 2024
    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. Cost savings Workplace charging supports lower charging fees for employees who drive EVs than public charging. Similarly, the company's business cars can save costs and temporary car charging waiting time.   If the charger is opened to the public, it will gain greater passenger flow and greatly increase the usage rate of the charger. This allows installation costs to be effectively shared and makes it easier to earn profits.   Government actions to combat climate change often include incentives for charging facilities. If there happens to be an incentive subsidy for charger installation or operation in the local area, it will also be a considerable cost coverage.   6. More trustworthy security When car owners are charging, besides charging speed, they are more concerned about charging safety. Not only does it include personal and equipment safety during the charging process, but it also includes the impact on electric vehicle batteries.   Having an EVSE charger and using AC slow charging during working hours is more conducive to maintaining battery health and extending battery service life.   The EVSE charger self-selected according to the standards is more certain, stable, safe, and trustworthy.     Workersbee, a top-tier EVSE manufacturer, has been working in the EV charging field for more than ten years, insisting on product innovation and high-quality standards. The products have passed high-standard certifications such as TUV/CE/UKCA/CB/ETL/UL. Production and shipment will undergo rigorous testing at all levels. Sales channels are spread worldwide, and have won consistently high reputation and praise.   7. Positive environmental impact Company's establishment of EVSE chargers will not only improve the satisfaction of employees who own EVs and increase their chances of driving them every week but also encourage non-EV employees to switch to EVs. It not only builds up the company's environmental image and enhances brand value (this has worked in many cooperations) but also greatly improves energy efficiency, which is an effective action for the company to practice carbon reduction and sustainable development.   Conclusion Invest in workplace EVSE chargers to make charging more convenient, cheaper, freer, and safer. In addition to improving employee happiness and enhancing customer satisfaction, workplace charging can drive business growth and revenue while building a positive environmental image for the company. On a deeper level, it also contributes to the sustainable future of human society.   If you would like to have an EVSE charger in your workplace, please contact us to learn more about the charging solutions that are suitable for your business.

    Dec 06, 2023
      As environmental problems intensify and policy-led sales of electric vehicles skyrocket. As an indispensable source of power, the demand for EV charging market has also shown explosive growth. Governments are making every effort to promote public charging, but it cannot be ignored that for most electric vehicle owners, charging mainly occurs where they live. Home charging is more convenient and less expensive, giving it an unshakable position in the charging market.   Usually, private homeowners choose to install fixed EV chargers in their homes, while EV owners living in apartments opt for shared chargers in apartment parking lots, although in many cases, it is necessary to go with other residents to coordinate charging arrangements and parking occupancy. These chargers are almost AC chargers, available in different options from 3.7kw to 22kw. Today's more common one on the market is still the 7.4kw power output. These products may rely on installation by a professional electrician, require negotiation with local utility companies, and are not cheap. But by charging at home, you can enjoy low electricity bills and avoid the trouble of finding public charging stations.   There is a product whose functions may be underestimated by us, but in fact, many people have realized its benefits. It's the portable EV charger, which some automakers will include in the car purchase package (but usually with a very low capacity).

  • Challenges of Urban Electric Vehicle DC Charging Challenges of Urban Electric Vehicle DC Charging
    Jun 21, 2023
    The International Energy Agency (IEA) published the report The Global EV Outlook 2023 in April, and from the global vehicle trading data presented in the report for the first quarter of this year, EV sales reached another record high, up about 25% over the same period last year. Stimulated by various policies and incentives, trading data from countries have shown strong EV growth, but we still seem to have a long way to achieve our decarbonization goals. In other words, the present market share of EVs is nowhere near what is expected for the global achievement of Carbon Reduction targets. Electric Vehicle anxiety makes many ICE drivers hesitant to choose EVs and is a major barrier to further EV popularity. In essence, EV anxiety is not range anxiety as we usually think, but more about the fear of being unable to recharge efficiently after a power shortage. With the explosive growth of the electric vehicle market, the EV charging infrastructure is being pushed to its limits. This means that EV plug is always available to plug in power whenever you need it. Besides promoting the application of home AC chargers, it is imperative to leverage the power of government and utilities to vigorously increase the percentage of public DC charging piles in urban that can replenish energy quickly and efficiently. However, building DC fast charging stations in urban is not an easy task and usually faces several challenges.   The Right Space Although the DC charging time for EVs is getting closer to the refueling time for gasoline vehicles, it is challenging to find the right DC charging space in cities. The planning and layout of charging facilities should consider the needs and behaviors of diverse user groups, particularly in densely populated residential areas and high-value commercial zones. The location selection should consider various factors, including urban public planning, drivers' charging habits, demand frequency, fair access to charging for residents on each street, etc. Whether it is for daily urban life recharge or to facilitate road trips, DC fast charging points are bound to have large enough parking spaces and charging spaces. This would probably involve such things as gas stations, parking lots, apartments, residential and commercial buildings, etc. It should not be overlooked that the prerequisite to start implementing construction is the ability to obtain land and building permits.     Grid Strength Support Electric vehicle charging must be connected to the grid. Compared to low-power home AC chargers, DC fast charging requires a much larger amount of power supply, which may put considerable pressure on the regional grid. First, sufficient energy supply generation must be secured to enable the high output voltage requirements of DC charging posts. Especially in the summer peak, ensuring sufficient power supply and balancing the energy demand of the city is a key issue. In addition, the grid needs to be reliable enough to handle increasing loads, while being resilient enough to withstand bad weather and other potential threats.   Driver Experience Satisfaction As the ultimate user of the charger, the EV driver has an absolute say in the charging experience. DC charging can provide higher power and faster charging speed to the car, gaining significant mileage increase in a short time. This requires chargers to have higher power to ensure they can meet the huge charging demand created by the growing number of EVs. The EVSE must improve its reliability and extend its uptime. To avoid the difficulty of finding available charging piles nearby when EVs run out of battery. The consistency of the vehicle-pile interface protocol is the key to ensuring convenient charging for drivers. Workersbee's charging cable is highly compatible with a wide range of charging standards and has obtained many international authoritative certifications such as UL, TUV, CE, and RoHS. The flexible TPU cable is designed with excellent workmanship, and the connector is easy to plug and unplug without effort. The superior ergonomic design makes it easy to handle and comfortable for the driver to grip during the charging connection preparation stage. The interactive experience of the device is also the part that drivers will concern. The interface of the charger side is clear, friendly, and easy to understand and operate, and the supporting APP of smart devices such as mobile phones can precisely position the location of the charger and be easy to operate, etc. In the payment part of the completed charging, the billing standard should be clear and transparent, in line with market fairness. It is also necessary that the payment operation is convenient and safe, whether through the device side or the APP side. Perhaps the surrounding environment and supporting facilities of the charging station also have to be taken into consideration, such as convenience stores, cafes, or restaurants. Certainly, the parking fees incurred in the charging process need to be charged reasonably.   Operation and Maintenance The high equipment procurement cost and increasingly high-frequency usage rate of DC chargers make the operation and maintenance cost the biggest concern, and the O&M work will be pushed to the front line. The management platform can monitor the operation of each device point remotely, and identify the chargers that are broken down in time, with after-sales support from technicians.      Frequent plugging and unplugging of the charging cable will inevitably cause wear or damage to the terminals inside the gun, which leads to a poor electric connection, affecting the charging speed or even a charging failure. It is also easy to overheat and damage components, significantly shortening the life of the device, and even a serious safety risk. Workersbee's terminal quick-change technology makes DC charging maintenance easier and lower cost. The terminals only need to be replaced individually when they are worn, not the whole plug and the modular operation process is very simple.   Charging Security Safety is a well-deserved topic for electrification applications in urban. The safety of the device, the car, the driver, the installer, and the technical service provider are all intertwined. Equipment needs to meet relevant quality standards and safety codes, including fire and flame retardants, leakage protection, temperature monitoring, overload protection, etc. It can automatically respond to the battery management system of electric vehicles, interact and communicate to ensure the security and efficiency of the charging process. Moreover, special consideration should be given to the potential for accidents occurring under user error operations. Conduct adequate communication tests and electrical safety tests before putting them into use, and equip them with suitable insurance according to the actual situation.   The demand for EVSE in cities is growing exponentially as the number of electric vehicles on the road continues to rise. Developing sustainable business models and ensuring that revenues from charging facilities cover operating costs are the challenges we face if we are to achieve our goal of a decarbonized society. These challenges need to be resolved by governments, urban planners, energy suppliers, and stakeholders working together to drive the development and uptake of EV and EV charging facilities in cities. Stay Charged, Stay Connected. Workersbee is focused on the future of green transportation and is deeply committed to the EV charging market with superior quality, cutting-edge technology, complete certification, and a robust after-sales system.

  • Is the White House's New Standards for Electric Vehicle Chargers Network a golden opportunity or a super barrier for EVSE exporters? Is the White House's New Standards for Electric Vehicle Chargers Network a golden opportunity or a super barrier for EVSE exporters?
    May 24, 2023
    In early 2023, the Biden Administration announced New Standards for the Network of Electric Vehicle Chargers, as the global economy faded from the gloomy effects of COVID-19. As a strong complement to the Inflation Reduction Act, it aims to promote the widespread application of clean energy and the U.S. goal of achieving an electrified society. Major actions include:   l All EV chargers funded Federally must be built in the United States. It means the final assembly of all steel charger housings or enclosures and all manufacturing processes must take place in the United States; l At least 55 percent of the cost of EV chargers will also need to come from U.S. manufacturing by July 2024; l Invest $7.5 billion in EV charging construction. A national network of 500,000 EV chargers along U.S. highways and in residential communities by 2030, while achieving 50 percent of new vehicle sales as EVs; l The new chargers will require uniform adoption of the mainstream U.S. charging connector standard, known as the Combined Charging System (CCS), as well as standards that require 97 percent reliability time for all charging posts.   The standard is another forceful policy support for the U.S. electric vehicle industry following IRA enacted last August.Which means EV chargers will also have to comply with Made in America, after requiring local production of power batteries.It is a core part of the Biden Administration's plan to confront climate change, to fully promote the adoption of EVs in the market and accelerate the advent of an electrified society.   What we are facing With the continued stimulation of both policy and demand, the U.S. electric vehicle market penetration has reached a record high but is still depressed compared to the European and Chinese markets. Due to policy support and multiple subsidy incentives, the penetration rate of electric vehicles in certain European countries is already close to 50%, with the most prominent Norway having reached about 70%. Chinese electric vehicle penetration has also surpassed 25%, which is more than three times that of the United States. The previous IRA released by the White House coupled with the new standards for chargers this year, the implementation of a powerful subsidy policy, will certainly stimulate the U.S. electric vehicle market to boost significantly. Last year some analysts believed that the market share of electric vehicles in the United States was expected to reach 12% in 2023.   Build America, Buy America Along with the rising penetration of electric vehicles, the number of EVs on the road will gradually increase. This means that the market demand for EV chargers will also usher in a spurt of growth opportunities. According to the 2022 survey data, the public vehicle-charger ratio in the U.S. market is only 24.2:1, while the public vehicle-charger ratio in the Chinese market has reached 7.6:1, and the EU data for 2021 shows that the overall EU public vehicle-charger ratio has also reached 16.5:1.Therefore, to accelerate the strength of the EV market, the construction of EV chargers in the United States can not wait. The purpose of releasing new standards on  EV chargers at this time is not only to actively promote the plan to combat climate change on a macro level but also to further plan the direction of the local electric vehicle industry in the U.S., to realize the unification of domestic charging connector standard, as well as to improve the charging efficiency and satisfaction of the charging experience of EV drivers,  with the deeper intention of enhancing the market share of various sectors of the local charging industry chain.With the strong support of the new charging standards, the U.S. administration has been able to harvest capital back to the homeland in a big way by supporting or cultivating local charging industry businesses and keeping 55% of the purchase cost in the U.S. since 2024. It is also a powerful expression of the Build America, Buy America Act.   Challenge: To Be or Not to Be Obviously, the new U.S. charging standards will certainly make a huge splash in the global EV chargers market due to the great potential market demand in the U.S. in the future. Whether it is an opportunity or an obstacle, global supply chain enterprises are actively responding to it. First and foremost, Tesla announced the opening of its Supercharger and Destination Charger network to competitors, non-Tesla electric vehicles. At least 7,500 open chargers for all electric vehicles by the end of 2024, distributed throughout the United States. At least 3,500 high-powered fast chargers are distributed along highways, and Level 2 chargers at locations such as hotels and tours in urban and rural areas. In addition, Tesla has more than doubled its Supercharger network in Buffalo, New York. Several of the market's top charger companies and CPOs have also been quick to provide corresponding market feedback, adjusting their market strategies and accelerating the expansionary layout of their nationwide charging networks by establishing partnerships and other means. But, with the advent of net zero , the global explosion of demand for electric vehicle chargers is bound to put tremendous pressure on the supply chain. In order to meet the new US-made standards, it will become increasingly difficult to lay new chargers in the short term, limiting to some extent the acceleration of the US chargers layout. For EVSE exporters, the dividends of the U.S. charger market may just be gathering momentum, but with the implementation of the new standards, it is unknown whether exporters will regretfully stop there or rise to the challenge. This is because it means that all manufacturing processes for these EV charger enclosures, from melting and pouring to the final coating application, must take place in the United States.The choice of building a factory in the United States, or choosing to produce the core modules in the home country and OEM assembly in the United States, or simply relying on the export of technology and services to get a share of this huge market is a not so easy strategic choice and challenge for exporters. Not to mention the direct competition from big international manufacturers, such as ABB, Shell, and Siemens, and local manufacturers that already have a certain market share, such as ChargePoint, Blink, EVgo, etc.Workersbee is based on an international vision and global strategic layout, establishing a European company in the Netherlands in 2022, and planning to establish an American company in the future. Besides the requirements of the new standards, the sale of EVSE in the United States is required to pass UL certification, the cost of certification is a costly expenditure, and the time cost of the long certification cycle also needs to be taken into account.Further, there are numerous stringent technical indicators standards that bring technical challenges which should not be ignored. All of these may be enough to become obstacles for companies to enter the U.S. EV charger market.With a forward-looking international perspective and industry-leading technology grade, Workersbee was the first to pass UL certification in 2021 with the product application of innovative technologies such as Terminal Quick-change , Ultrasonic Welding, and High-power Liquid Cooling. The protection level of our products reaches IP 67, and we take the leading position in China and overseas markets with absolute technical advantages.   Plug-in with us,Powering the Future As the global focus and plans for climate change accelerate, we are working together to build a climate-friendly and eco-friendly society.Workersbee will definitely follow the trend and embrace the changes in policy and market activity so as to make it easy for more people to choose electric vehicles wherever they go.We will deepen our research and development of forefront technology in the field of electric vehicle charging, work to promote multiple certifications overseas, and accelerate the strategic layout of overseas markets.We are convinced that as our efforts advance, driving electric vehicles will become more and more convenient, simple, carefree, and common.If you are interested in joining us to embrace the future of a mobile, green, clean, and sustainable world, please explore and contact us, as your EV Charging Solution Partner.
