– The trial was not about the safety of the products. Our decision to withdraw the trial is strategic: We will put safety first, ensure compliance with the authorities’ requirements and prioritize dialogue, says Easee’s interim general manager, Erik Færevaag.

More than a year has passed since the Swedes introduced a sales ban for the Easee Charge and Easee Home charging boxes.

The Swedish Electricity Authority believes that the earth fault protection in the charging boxes is not safe enough. Among other things, they believe that Easee’s earth fault protection has a shorter lifespan than a conventional earth fault protection.

Easee, for its part, recently came out with a report that it believes proves that the charging boxes are not dangerous. The company says the error rate on the chargers installed so far is lower than what can be expected. They believe it indicates that the service life is good, since it is at the beginning and end of the service life that the failure rate is greatest.

In April, the parties will meet in court in Sweden, where the sales ban will finally be decided.

What about the installed chargers?

In addition, Easee and the Swedish Safety Agency are discussing what should be done with the more than 100,000 charging boxes that have already been installed in Sweden.

In the worst case, Easee will be required to do something more for each and every one of the installed chargers. In that case, it will cost the company dearly.

But the Swedish Safety Agency believes it is unlikely that they will demand this.
