What is a Portable EV Charger?

Unlike traditional wall-mounted EV chargers, a portable electric vehicle charger is a compact and lightweight unit, designed for on-the-go charging. It plugs into a standard outlet, allowing you to conveniently charge your electric car wherever a compatible outlet is available. This makes them ideal for:

  • Roadside assistance: Mobile EV charger for roadside use is a lifesaver in case you run low on battery while on a trip.
  • Temporary charging solutions: Perfect for those who lack a dedicated parking space with a charging station.
  • Events and outings: Charge your car at festivals, campsites, or even a friend’s driveway.
  • Construction or renovation projects: Keep your EV powered up during home improvement projects.
  • Renters and Travelers: No need for permanent installation, making it perfect for those who rent or travel frequently.
  • Unmatched Flexibility: Charge your car anywhere with a standard outlet, eliminating dependence on fixed charging stations.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: Portable chargers are generally more affordable than installing a dedicated wall charger at home.

Demystifying Portable Vehicle Charger Options

Mobile EV chargers come in various configurations to cater to different charging needs and electrical systems. 

  • Amperage: Measured in amps (A), this determines the charging speed. Higher amperage chargers deliver faster charging but require a compatible outlet with sufficient capacity. Common options include 16A, 32A, and even heavy-duty 40A chargers for rapid charging.
  • Voltage: Most mobile electric car chargers operate on standard household voltage (120V or 240V) for convenient charging at home or on the go.
  • Plug Type: Ensure compatibility between your portable charger’s plug and the available outlet. Popular options include the J1772 plug (common in North America) and the Type 2 plug (used in Europe and Asia). Some chargers even offer adapters for increased versatility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Consider these factors when selecting your Zencar portable EV charger:

  • Your Electric Vehicle's Charging Requirements: Refer to your car's manual to determine the recommended amperage for safe and efficient charging. Zencar offers models with adjustable amperage (like the Model E) or fixed amperage options.
  • Typical Charging Locations: If you plan to use the charger at campsites or locations with limited power outlets, a lower amperage charger (16A) might be sufficient. For frequent highway use, a high-amperage option (32A or even 40A) could be more suitable for faster charging.
  • Portability Needs: Prioritize a lightweight and compact charger for easy transport if you value portability (like the Model E).

The two most common plug types for portable EV chargers are:

  • J1772: This plug is the standard in North America and will connect to most electric vehicles sold in the region.
  • Type 2 EVSE: This plug is prevalent in Europe and Asia. Some Zencar portable chargers, like the 22kW Mobile EV Charger, might come with adapters to accommodate both J1772 and Type 2 plugs.

Yes, most Zencar portable EV chargers are designed to operate on standard household voltage (120V or 240V). However, it's crucial to ensure the outlet's amperage rating is compatible with the charger you're using. It's always recommended to consult a qualified electrician if you have any concerns about your home's electrical system.

Charging time depends on several factors, including:

  • Charger amperage: Higher amperage chargers deliver faster charging speeds.
  • Battery capacity of your electric car: Larger batteries take longer to charge.
  • Available outlet amperage: The outlet's amperage rating should be equal to or higher than the charger's amperage for optimal charging speed.

For a more precise estimate, consult your car's manual or refer to the specifications of the charger you're considering.

Always prioritize safety when using a portable EV charger. Here are some key guidelines:

  • Outlet Compatibility: Double-check that the outlet's amperage rating is compatible with the charger you're using.
  • Cable Inspection: Before each use, thoroughly inspect the charging cable for any signs of damage or wear and tear.
  • Environmental Conditions: Avoid using the charger in wet or snowy conditions.
  • Grounding: Ensure the outlet you're using is properly grounded.
