Portable EV charging

Portable EV Chargers

Portable EV Chargers are the most popular segment of the market.  They are known as EVSE chargers, mobile chargers and portable chargers.

Portable EV chargers first hit the market about a decade ago.  They were provided as manufacturers supplied EV chargers with the first plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.  With commercial charging infrastructure not so developed at the time, it was an easy way to provide a charging solution so that wherever the electric vehicle went, the owner had a charging solution in the trunk ready to go. 

Portable EV chargers also helped grow electric vehicle car adoption- they can be quick in terms of charging speed, are flexible as they can be used to charge from anywhere that there is a power source and are light and compact.   People like the plug and play format, small footprint and peace of mind that they have a charging solution anywhere.

Below are the key considerations when deciding on your next portable EV charger.  A portable charger is a consideration if any of the following apply to your situation:-

  • You want the peace of mind of having a charger always available in the car
  • You travel long distances and electric range may be an issue
  • You live in a rental property so fitting a fixed charging station may not be an option
  • Your garage is small as portable chargers have a smaller footprint compared to wall stations
  • You seek value in charging.  Portable chargers can be 50% less than wall chargers
  • You prefer simplicity
