An emerging and competitive space in the EV charging ecosystem is mobile EV chargers. These range from small portable battery packs on wheels like a luggage roller bag to massive battery packs housed on trailers — and everything in between.

EV charging power ranges from AC Level 2 to DC fast chargers and customers range from consumers, fleets, building owners, and mobile service providers. Most solutions are purchased but some are available for rental or “as a service.”

Common uses for these mobile EV charging solutions include:

  • For urban EV drivers without a garage
  • Apartment owners or workplaces in lieu of expensive permanent charging deployments
  • Spare power in case of running out of power
  • Roadside assistance charging
  • Charging EVs at EV drive events, festivals, sporting and other events
  • Charging electric trucks, vans or buses at remote locations
  • Most can also be used as portable power stations for back-up during an emergency.

Some of the mobile battery charging solutions include:

The Go portable charger is a ‘smart’ charger on wheels, no bigger than a compact suitcase, that is designed for simplicity, affordability and appeal. The Go is charged from any electrical outlet, then wheeled to your EV using the retractable handle where you plug it into the charge port using a standard mobile charging cable that comes with most EVs.

The Go provides up to 20-40 miles of range (depending on the capacity and vehicle) – sufficient for everyday needs and enough for the average commute. A full charge is delivered to your EV by the Go in approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on capacity and temperature. Control everything via the Go app which auto schedules charging at the lowest cost, providing status updates and tracking.
