We’ve been using Clipper Creek for years for some of our BMW i3 electric vehicles and we were impressed with their longevity and build quality, in any environments. Now the California-based company is releasing a new series High Power “Ruggedized” Electric Vehicle Charging Stations back by five year warranties.

The HCS-60 and HCS-80, two of ClipperCreek’s highest-powered Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations, are now available in “Ruggedized” configurations. The HCS-60R and HCS-80R feature rubber overmolded SAE-J1772TM connectors for added impact and crush resistance, field-replaceable connector latches, and are backed by five year warranties. These high-power, ruggedized charging stations offer reliable and affordable high-power level 2 charging solutions designed specifically for heavy utilization fleets, public parking lots, and extreme weather locations. The ruggedized option is offered at an excellent value of $100 in addition to the base price of $899 for the HCS-60 and $969 for the HCS-80.

“We saw great customer acceptance with our first set of ruggedized products, the HCS-40R and PMD-10R and have continued to receive requests for the higher-powered ruggedized options,” said Will Barrett, ClipperCreek Director of Sales. “ClipperCreek’s standard products are very robust, all have NEMA 4 rated enclosures for indoor or outdoor installs. The overmolded ruggedized SAE-J1772TM connector takes our already tough products to another level.”

“Our commitment to the electric vehicle market drives us to bring the greatest value to our customers at every opportunity. As the market continues to evolve and vehicle options increase commercial customers have asked for our ruggedized stations in other power levels, so we developed a new overmolded connector with a replaceable latch for the HCS-60 and HCS-80. We stand behind this connector’s durability by offering a five year product warranty.”
