FLO’s new charger cables, known as EZLift, utilize a motorized system to aid in fast-charging cable extension and retraction. This system is designed to make handling heavy fast-charging cables much easier for users of various ages, strengths, and sizes. The EZLift system automates cable extension and retraction, reducing the force needed to pull the cable to the EV for charging.

Moreover, the EZLift system locks into place while charging, minimizing stress on the car’s charging port and preventing any damaging contact with the vehicle. After charging is complete, smart sensors automatically retract and return the cable to the charging station, eliminating the risk of the cable becoming a trip hazard or being run over by other vehicles.

The EZLift system will be introduced on FLO’s new 320 kW fast charger, the FLO Ultra, set to be launched this spring. This innovative system aims to enhance the charging experience by simplifying cable management and improving safety during the charging process.

“ You only get one chance to be an early adopter with something like this, so there was a ‘time is of the essence’ element to electric vehicle technology.The deployment of these networked charging stations was very well aligned with the City of Kingston’s mantra of innovation and our strategic commitment to climate leadership.”

Paul MacLatchy, Environment Director, City of Kingston, Ontario, Canada
