FLO’s high-end home chargers pre-launched in US at $200 discount
Canada-based electric vehicle charging station manufacturer FLO is set to mark its foray into the US market, with the launch of its high-quality charging stations. The company already has a significant presence in the electric vehicle (EV) charging arena in its home country.
In announcing a month-long pre-launch of its charging stations in partnership with electric vehicle magazine Electrek in the US, FLO has revealed that it is offering a discount of $200 on its high-end home chargers for EVs.
FLO charging stations are available in two versions --- the smart X5 version which is priced at $1,195; and the standard G5 version which is priced at $995. Both of the FLO charging station versions have casing which is completely made of NEMA 4X aluminium.
The smart X5 and the standard G5 versions of FLO’s home charging stations come with a J1772 universal connector, and a flexible 25-foot cable. Both the home chargers boast 240 V – 30 A – 7.2 kW charge rate; and they have been officially rated to work in temperatures ranging between -40 °F and 122 °F.
With the month-long pre-launch of FLO’s home chargers having commenced in the US, customers can avail a $200 discount by ordering the home chargers through Electrek. Customers who reserve the home chargers now will get an Electrek promotional code, sent by FLO, which can be used when the shipping of the home chargers begins in the US later this summer.
