Blink Charging, a leading manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment, has launched its EQ 200 charger in the UK and Ireland. The advanced charger is designed specifically for European markets and features vehicle-to-grid (VTG) and bi-directional charging capabilities.
The EQ 200 delivers up to 22kW of charging power, enabling drivers to quickly recharge their EVs. It also supports 2G, 4G, Bluetooth and WiFi/ethernet connectivity, allowing integration with smart energy management systems. According to Blink, the connectivity transforms the chargers from static EV charging points into dynamic parts of an intelligent, sustainable energy network.
“The launch of our grid-ready EQ 200 charger is an important moment for EV charging in the UK and Ireland,” said Alex Calnan, Managing Director of Blink Charging UK. “Sites can now install an advanced charging solution capable of interacting with smart energy systems as the technology develops.”
Miko de Haan, President of Blink Charging Europe, noted the continued acceleration of EV adoption in the UK. “This demands a sophisticated EV charging infrastructure. We hope to play our part in growing a network of future-capable chargers that supports UK and Ireland’s EV ambitions.”
The EQ 200 comes after EV sales in the UK outpaced expectations last year, hitting nearly 17% of new car registrations. Blink aims to provide the infrastructure needed to enable the transition away from petrol and diesel vehicles. Read our early Blink EQ 200 review for more insight.
