This goes on my Karma wish list immediately. :heart:




22KW is probably overkill since most public charging stations her are limited to 240 V/ 30 A or 7.2KW so even a 10 KW charger would be more than enough here, but what the heck, may as well be prepared for future improvements.

No Cooling required for the charger? How did they do that? I saw some tesla roadster or model s chargers pics here that showed they are liquid cooled..

Seriously? Do you think such device can be installed in our Karma. Can we convice Fisker to test the device and offer this upgrade. I for sure willing to pay.
Anyway I agree, this would be also first on my wish list.
2nd on my wish list is a battery for 100 miles. Santa, I am ready!

The form factor is an issue and I am not sure if this would fit the enclosure for the Karma. Also, as I said, 22KW is well over what you can get at any public terminal or home EVSE. I would be more than happy with 10 KW, that would cut the charging time (assuming sufficient current is available) to around 2 hours.

Oddly, BRUSA only sells two 3.7KW chargers (one water cooled and one air cooled) and the 22KW one. There are no intermediate models.

That looks very small and flat compared to the OBCM in the Karma which is more rectangular. In any event, it is a shame that Fisker chose the small 3.3kw charger rather than a 6.6kw or 10kw like the Model S. It would be great to fully charge the Karma in between lunch and dinner.

I totally agree with both of you. 10kW or even 6.6kW would be more than enough. I have now 4,000 miles on mine and I am doing on some days more than 50 miles. Therefore I get around 40mpg in total. I could get much higher if I could charge faster. There are many stations in SoCal I could use.
The slow charging is really what bother me the most. Do you guys think we may can raise this wish on the next conference call? I would be happy to pay for the exchange.

Nissan is making the 6.6kw charger a retrofit option for first generation Leafs
