BTC Energy Will Combine NACS Connector In 2024: Exhibits A Prototype

BTC Energy, one of many largest DC quick charger producers in the USA, introduced as we speak the mixing of Tesla’s North American Charging Customary (NACS) connector into its merchandise over the subsequent 12 months.

The NACS charging connector shall be accessible in 2024, alongside the already-used Mixed Charging System (CCS1) and CHAdeMO plugs.
