A magnetic plug for electric vehicles conductive charging

October 2020
Gallery PAM! 1
Gallery PAM! 1


PAM! is a magnetic plug that accelerates electric vehicles adoption and reduces the financial and social cost of charging infrastructure thanks to an automated plug-in. PAM! has 2 main applications: SELFPLUG and WEPLUG. The first is a hands-free charging solution, the best charging experience an EV maker can offer: EV drivers do not even have to think about charging their EV, and AVs can charge without human intervention! The second is a cost-killing co-charging solution compatible with any existing electric vehicles: it reduces charging infrastructure costs in parking lots by making it easy to share a single charging station over a large number of parking spaces (10 or more).
