Narita International Airport Installs Battery-Based Ultra-Fast EV Chargers

Narita International Airport's newly installed ultra-fast EV charger

Narita International Airport, in collaboration with PowerX, has installed the ‘Hypercharger’, a battery-based ultra-fast EV charger, in the P1 multi-storey car park of Terminal 1. This marks the first installation of its kind at a domestic airport in Japan.

By incorporating a battery, the charger is capable of providing some of Japan’s fastest charging speeds of up to 150kW despite being on a low voltage supply, completing the charge in approximately half the time of conventional methods.

There is one unit installed which supports charging from two ports. The service operates 24 hours and started from 9 a.m. on December 15. Prior reservation can also be made via the PowerX app.
