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:
Designed with freedom in mind, the free-standing Blink Mobile EV charging station supports 240-volt AC charging and provides up to 9.6kW of charge anywhere. The self-contained EV charger does not require installation. It can be purchased in either a networked or non-networked configuration. The non-networked configuration allows roadside assistance companies to provide the EV charge as a part of their standard services. The networked configuration enables EV drivers to charge through their Blink account or pay for the electricity received.
The mobile plug-in charging unit can deliver up to 1 mile of charge per minute, allowing drivers to reach the nearest charging station or their home. The mobile charging stations are sought-after by leading roadside assistance companies, insurance companies, auto manufacturers, and even credit card companies that offer roadside services.
EV Charge Mobile is a portable solution for Level 2 and DC fast EV-charging providing mobile EV charging for anyone needing temporary EV charging.
EV Safe Charge’s mobile EV charging service offers a highly adaptable Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) and charging as a service (CaaS) option that is available for rent. EV Safe Charge provides this service to event organizers and any site in need of temporary EV charging. The system can be integrated with existing charging infrastructure or be totally self-contained.
A mobile alternative to stationary Level 2 chargers, Mobi EV Chargers are battery-powered – providing powerful charging without the need for complex and costly electrical infrastructure.
A truly portable solution, Mobi can be deployed anywhere and utilize a drive system with joystick operation to allow for exact placement. Equipped with dual connectors, Mobi EV Chargers are also supported by a full-featured software platform for intelligent energy and asset management.

In addition to powering Electric Vehicles (EVs), the Portable Electric VOLTstack® Mobile EV Charger can provide power for other off-grid applications, like live events, film sets, emergency backup power and to support power for wildfire response crews.
The SparkCharge Roadie enables EV drivers to charge anywhere with no additional equipment or installation needed. Light enough to carry and fit in the trunk of any car, the Roadie also easily fits on carts.
The Roadie batteries can be stacked for simultaneous use, allowing customers to tailor the range you deliver. The portable charging system generates 15 miles of range in just 15 minutes.
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.
