Israel’s revolution in recharging car batteries
Zooz Power, an Israeli company that has created a fast charging system for electric vehicles (EVs) based on kinetic inertia technology, has signed its first commercial contracts in Europe, the United States and Israel.
The product developed by Zooz Power uses energy from the grid to spin eight wheels 17,000 times per minute. The process converts electrical energy into kinetic energy. When a vehicle comes to recharge, the rotation is slowed down to transform this kinetic energy back into electrical power and inject it into the vehicle’s battery at such a rate that the battery is fully recharged in about 15 minutes.
Founder Boaz Weizer, CEO of Zooz Power, compares the intensity of the recharge provided to that of a toilet flush that quickly releases a large amount of water.
Kinetic charging avoids environmental problems such as the massive use of water and pollution associated with lithium mining.
The results are exceptional, and according to a sustainability researcher, the carbon footprint of this system produces 23 times less carbon dioxide emissions than a lithium battery.
The company, Zooz Power, aims to provide fast EV charging in areas where the electricity grid is not yet strong enough.
Shortly, five Zooster-100 units will be installed at five commercial and leisure locations in Germany.
To date, Zooz Power is at an advanced stage of European patent registration. It hopes to begin deployment in Germany by the end of the year.
