    Tesla is going to make it's own chargingstations for it's cars.

    could this be a "competitor"

    Wow, that is some serious power! 250kW!

    I'm glad to read that Input Power 480V, 3 Phase AC, 330A max is not the only option. In Germany, I think such a device should be hooked up to medium level voltage (22kV) where it still draws 11A.

    There are some 60kW out there: Blink


    This AV proprietary 250kW charger has been around for a good few years...

    You can see these things at airports like Burbank. All those huge electric luggage vehicles plug in right in front of the tarmac windows.

    I don't think it will take 10kV as an input voltage, since it would then have to convert 10.000 Volt AC into 500V DC.
