dual pro charger problems Ford has filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a dual charging port solution that would allow multiple electric cars to charge in series from the same charging station.

First spotted by CarBuzz, the system described in the patent application uses bidirectional charging. But instead of either charging or discharging through a single charging port, this solution allows vehicles to do both, taking in power through one charging port and sending it to another vehicle through a second port.

Ford also proposes use in vehicle-to-grid (V2G) applications, potentially allowing a series of vehicles to take energy from the grid, feed it back to the grid or share charging between vehicles, depending on software dual pro charger problems.

While patent filings are by no means proof of production intentions, it seems like it could be an excellent addition to the Home Integration System offered to day in the Ford F-150 Lightning, allowing the pickup to serve as a backup power for emergencies in home source dual pro charger problems.

In addition to keeping the lights on during power outages, this technology could also be applied to the various V2G scenarios being discussed by automakers and utility companies, such as buffering the grid by using groups of electric cars to absorb excess power for later use.

Or perhaps it could be part of optimizing charging profiles between EVs supported by Ford’s Pro business. Helping companies charge fleets in a way that minimizes electricity costs is a key part of Ford’s plan to sell more work-oriented electric cars.

This also seems similar to a patent last year from General Motors, which also discussed using dual charging ports to increase flexibility. Given the mutual goal of smarter, cost-effective charging, it wouldn’t be surprising if several automakers see something very close to the same solution.
