Vectrix VX-1 is equipped with 1.5kW onboard charger.
Since 2007 there were 3 types of chargers in use:
1. ESD (silver) charger with round connectors
2. ESD (silver) charger with square connectors
3. EVPS (Runke, gold) charger in various revisions (from 1.0 to 4.0)
EVPS (Runke) charger revision 1.9 or higher (2.0, 2.1, 2.1N, 3.0, 4.0) is fully compatible with BMS used in Lithium batteries. We recommend revision 3.0 or 4.0 as most reliable.
