With the recent surge of electrical vehicle (EV) use in the United States, methods of charge have become a major topic of discussion. A roadside portable charger is a compact and mobile device used to provide charge for electric cars as an alternative for hard to install and expensive charging stations. These chargers are designed to be portable, lightweight, and flexible, allowing businesses to travel without range anxiety. This blog post will examine the details of these roadside portable chargers and their position as an ideal EV charging solution for any business owner. 

Is there a portable charger for electric cars?

Yes, and EV’s running out of battery can receive a charge at any time, due to the flexible and portable nature of these chargers. With this charging technology at an EV driver’s disposal, range anxiety will cease to exist. Mobile charging is ideal for business use, long travel times, and situations where a traditional charging station is not readily available. They can provide Level 1 or Level 2 charging capabilities, depending on the specific model and manufacturer. In the case of our product the Roadie Portable, Level 3 (DC fast charging) is offered, providing a fast and efficient charging experience. 

How do I choose a portable EV charger?

When choosing a portable mobile EV charger for roadside use, there are many factors to consider. Here are some key points to help you make a decision:


Ensure that the portable charger you choose is compatible with your specific EV model. Check the charging connector type to make sure it matches your vehicle's charging port. Portable EV chargers like the Roadie Portable are designed to compatible with all EVs on the market and can be customized to fit your business needs. You can choose between CHAdeMO, CCS, or Tesla, the battery and charger ratios, and the cord lengths to find exactly what your business needs. 


Charging Speed

Consider the charging speed offered by the portable charger. It is typically broken up into the categories of Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 charging. Level 1 charging operates at a slower charging speed, while Level 2 charging provides faster charging. Level 3 (DC fast charging) provides the most time-efficient and fast charge, proving to be a great asset to all business needs



Look for a portable charger that is compact, lightweight, and easy to carry. Consider factors like size, weight, and how easy it is to store and transport the charger. Having a compact and portable charger will make the product easy to use and transport for all fleets and roadside companies


Safety Features

Prioritize chargers with built-in safety features that will protect you and your car’s battery. The Roadie Portable features an easy-use emergency stop. This button will immediately stop the EV charge if necessary. The Roadie Portable also features a one button start/stop to make it as easy to use as possible in the field.

It's important to note that actual charging speeds can vary based on several factors, including the specific charger’s power output, the vehicle's charging capabilities, and the state of charge of the vehicle's battery when starting the charging session.
