The BETA Charge Cube

BETA’s electric aircraft charging network is powered by the Charge Cube. The Charge Cube safely, quickly, and efficiently charges next generation electric aircraft, as well as ground-based EV’s. We are partnering with airports, FBO’s, and OEM’s to deploy this technology and enable the future of aviation and electric transportation.

Reserve Charge Cube

50ft retractable reel

The 50 foot cord provides flexibility in aircraft parking orientation and location to minimize aircraft ground handling, and maintain a safe distance between the aircraft and its Charge Cube.

Purpose-built design

At 4 feet tall, BETA’s Charge Cubes are designed to integrate underneath an aircraft wing and offer a touchless experience to pilots and crew who operate them.

Continuous, reliable power output

Continuous 350 kW power output will charge an ALIA aircraft in just 50 minutes.

Multi-modal and interoperable

Universal charging standards allow BETA chargers to be utilized on any electric vehicle – ground or air – that is CCS1 compliant.

Mobile App

A mobile application serves as the touchpoint for all BETA charging systems, providing a familiar and simple interface to operate these products. The mobile app is powered by a robust backend where Charge Cube owners can set pricing for charging, automatically collect payment, and control APIs to interface Charge Cube with other enterprise systems.
