Dear Power Hero Followers,
We have hit 350% of our goal much earlier than expected. With that we’ve been able to accelerate some of our product development efforts.
We have now added an exciting new product to our development pipeline, the Power Hero Cameo for Level-2 EV charger equipment.
The Cameo is a connected piece of hardware that attaches to an existing Level-2 charger and connects it to our Power Hero Network. Any ‘dumb’ charger then can easily become a ‘smart’ charger that can be found, reserved, and brokered.
The patent for the Cameo was filed on February 19th, 2018. After several rounds of review with our development partners we felt it was time to announce it to our followers and investors.
To optimize early market penetration, our priorities will be the 110V Outlet Adapter (or ePort) followed by the Cameo. With these two devices, we can canvas our target markets much more quickly and integrate existing power sources into a robust network.
The 110V ePorts are already prototyped and will allow any outdoor power outlet in a parking garage or outdoors near a parking spot to become a networked Level-1 charger. Specifically it allows landlords, garage owners, and homeowners to generate revenue from overnight charging with very little investment. For apartment building managers that means that they can get a return on converting existing 110V AC outlets into reservable paid outlets, thus opening up the apartment residential market for EV sales.
The Cameo will allow business owners, retailers, and homeowners to upgrade very basic Level 2 chargers into an automated public charging station. Our network will allow owners to dynamically price and control access – prioritizing employees, comping customers, and charging fees after hours. It will also allow us to create a robust automated network using the 500,000 private level 2 chargers in existence or being installed, while our competitors sluggishly install infrastructure.
Our smart hardware is designed to automate the supply-side of our business for reservations and brokering power. Hardware deployment is estimated for Fall 2018 as more investments come in.
Thank you for your continued support and keep monitoring Power Hero for more updates! Better yet, tell your friends to invest in Power Hero!
