Frequently asked questions
What functional, solar powered e-bike charging stations can I find on the market?
If you search the Internet, you will find a large number of possible variants of charging stations. However, many of them are neither practical nor visually attractive. The CHARMAX from HBT is different: not only does it have a very clear, attractive design, it is also very easy to set up - even without a foundation - and to operate.
The PV modules on the roof generate over 1,300 Wp of green energy, ensuring charging of the e-bike batteries and environmentally friendly operation of the built-in devices.
I would like to start once with a charging station for e-bikes and possibly expand later.
How can I do that?
The best way is to first install a CHARMAX station with 4 charging points. Once you are convinced of the quality and function, you can easily expand the system by simply adding more stations to the first one. This way, you can provide as many additional charging points as you like. And if you don't want to spend too much money all at once, you may opt for a leasing arrangement in order to finance your charging station.
More and more e-bikers are coming to stay at my alpine chalet. Since the batteries are drained more quickly when riding uphill, I would like to offer charging options, but without building a foundation for that purpose. Is this possible?
The CHARMAX from HBT is very easy to set up and does not require a foundation. However, it can be anchored to the ground if needed. The bikes, helmets, cell phones and other valuables also enjoy excellent protection against weather and theft in the CHARMAX. What’s more, you can also perfectly match the appearance of the charging station to its surroundings, by choosing the appropriate color or adding wooden elements to its structure.
How many bikes can I charge at CHARMAX charging station
This question cannot be answered in a general way, because it depends on the chargers used, the size and the state of charge of the bike batteries, among other things. However, we will be happy to give you approximate figures based on specific products, although these may be influenced by several other factors as well.
We are redesigning our main square and would like to set special visual accents there and at the same time create a modern charging infrastructure for e-bikes.
Is it possible to combine the two aspirations?
With CHARMAX TREE you can undoubtedly put an absolute eye-catcher. The elegant shape, reminiscent of a tree, definitely ensures great attention. And yet, charging the e-bikes is as easy as with the more functional version CHARMAX FRAME.
I would like to motivate the employees of my company to come to work by bike. To do this, I would like to create an e-bike rental system with charging infrastructure. What can you recommend to me?
The German company MOVELO , with whom we cooperate, offers interesting subscription models for B2B customers. And for charging, of course, the CHARMAX charging station is ideal. Both together enable you to create optimal conditions for your employees so that they really have an incentive to cycle to work instead of driving.
I want to install an e-bike charging station, but I don't want to lay out the initial costs all at once. Are there financing models available?
In this case, we recommend leasing the charging station and thus spreading the costs over several years. If you then rent out advertising space or offer digital advertising slots, you can even use the revenue from this to offset some or all of the monthly leasing fees. We will be happy to consult you about this financing option. Wir informieren Sie gerne über die Tarife.
