High Speed Charger is shipping

Posted by Jimmy Stack on November 12, 2013 at 9:40 PM

I've heard that the high speed charger has begun shipping. 10 AMP , 5x faster?

(depending on your charger capacity – 2Ah and 10Ah are available).


I cancelled my Fast Charger because the chargers are not PFC,  Power Factor Corrected to be more efficient and run cooler. I will stick with the little 2 amps (more like 1 1/2 amp) charger.  Only USA made EL CON in California makes good PFC chargers.

Fast charging can also create heat in the battery and shorten the battery life!

the OT website shows 15 Amps. I guess we will see when the first ones are delivered.

Super charger
Fully recharge your battery in under an hour using a 15A super charger (+$150)

I now connect a 240 watt solar panel to my ELFis when I'm home and can super charge it. 48 vdc 5 amps. see the Photos section for a picture of it.
