TILER’s charging solution is compatible with (almost) all e-bikes. Battery types that haven’t been connected with TILER before, do need to be checked beforehand. This has to with the number of battery cells and the specific battery-management system (BMS) of the battery. It’s TILER’s mission to build a universal charging system on which all e-bikes (and in the future also other light-electric vehicles) can be charged.

The TILER charging tile works in combination with the TILER charging kickstand. The energy is wirelessly transferred to the e-bike through induction. The nice thing is that you don’t have to plug chargers in and out. Parking is automatically charging.

Nee dat is er niet. Er wordt vaak gedacht dat al het draadloos opladen inefficiënt is, omdat er wordt vergeleken met een draadloze oplader van mobiele apparaten. Echter zit er verschil in beide systemen wat het TILER-systeem wel efficiënt maakt.

Wireless charging of mobile devices is usually done with a normal USB adaptor, where no contact is made between the charger and the device. Because of this, multiple conversions of power are made between the power grid and the battery and in the end more power is supplied than needed, which is very inefficient.

Het TILER-systeem heeft zowel elektronica op de fiets en in de tegel dat met elkaar communiceert en ervoor zorgt dat de het juiste voltage wordt geconverteerd, nog voordat de draadloze vermogens transmissie plaatsvindt. De elektronica op de fiets stuurt feedback naar de tegel als er fluctuaties in de laadstroomvoorziening nodig zijn. Dit vormt een efficiënte control loop waarin nauwelijks vermogen verloren gaat, in tegenstelling tot het draadloos laden van een mobiel apparaat.

The TILER charging tile can charge 2 Ampere, just like a normal charger. Furthermore, fast charging will be possible in the future on the charging tile with 4 Ampere.

The TILER charging tile and kickstand can be ordered from €25 per month, for a 36 month contract. These costs include warranty and maintenance in the pilot phase but exclude installation. The installation costs depend on the number of tiles that need to be place and the location.

Yes for sure! The TILER charging solution can be installed in-ground, just like a regular pavement tiler, but we also offer a charging-platform in which the TILER charging tile is integrated. The platform can be placed on-ground, doesn’t have to be digged in, which makes it a perfect charging solution for inside!

At the moment, TILER is focusing on charging e-bikes. In the future TILER wants to expand to a charging tile that can be used for different types of light electric vehicles. The first step is to create a charging solution for e-cargo bikes, which TILER is currently developing.

Yes the TILER charging kickstand can be sold separately to connect multiple e-bikes to your TILER-network.

The TILER charging kickstand is connected to the battery with a wire. This wire is neatly concealed to the e-bike. When you do want to charge the e-bike with your regular charger sometime, that’s possible.
