Cool share!

As you can see, these are non-modular and untethered Tritium chargers, so they cost quite a bit of money and are wasteful unless you can command a market like Ionity. In contrast, Tritium RTM/RKM series and Kempower are modular and can share and load balance the power within the hub, so the total cost of a large hub with 8 or 16 chargers would be considerably low.

A Tesla supercharger hub is tethered but modular, and the liquid cooling is shared across chargers neatly hidden underground.

What's an untethered supply. I'm trying to learn something.
Depending on the design, the chargers could either share the same cabinet, or the cabinets could be interconnected. This would influence the rate depending on the number of cars and their soc %. In case of ionity, there is no sharing between cabinets, so they can theoretically support full speed on all chargers.
