Autonomous, Conductive, Robotic fast charging for electric vehicles.

Two key New Mobility Questions

How do we autonomously charge an autonomous vehicle?

How do we fast charge a bus or truck (1MW+) in a way that is efficient, convenient, and cost-effective?

Current charging problems


  • Very expensive
  • Ugly “street furniture”

Wireless Charger

  • Expensive
  • Inefficient
  • Potential safety issues
  • Weight burden on vehicle

Manual Charger

  • Inconvenient
  • Design bound on human factors



Fixing problems,

Enabling opportunities.

Ultra Efficient
Multi Vehicle

Cost Effective

PowerHydrant vs. current charging solutions

Heavy duty electric vehicle

PowerHydrant can effectively carry ultra high current for XFC – 1MW+

XFC (eXtremely Fast Charge)

From the grid...

... to the PowerHydrant ...

... to the heavy duty electric vehicle.

The only charger to effectively support HD EV

Breakthrough technology

Robotic Design

  • Ultra High Power (1.5MW+, 2,000A)
  • Ultra high efficiency (99.9%+)
  • Safe, hands-free
  • Autonomous operation
  • Very Low Maintenance

Low cost, right size design philosophy

Low cost application focused design for robotics and computer vision

Uses inexpensive, commoditized smartphone & automotive components – very low MSRP

Industry Standard CCS2 Plug

Patented pull mechanism for easy and controlled insertion / removal.

The Secret Sauce

Patented low cost Computer Vision with Augmented Reality (AR).

EV Universality

Multiple designs and applications


3 sizes: 22kW, 350kW, 1.6MW

Home to heavy duty charging

Under Car

25 mm profile

Remote “eyes”

Optional Rail Design

Ceiling, Floor, Wall mount rails for the ultimate in charging flexibility
