Smart Mobile EV Charger is a mobilised emergency charger that offers roadside assistance when an electric vehicle (EV) is out of power on the road. It takes only 4 minutes to give the battery-drained EV an extra 20km mileage so that it can reach the nearest charging station for proper charging.
EV is getting popular but charging network is confined by the high cost of setting up charging station, land and charger investment as well as the issue of compatibility to different EV standards, etc. EV users suffer from range anxiety due to the challenges in charging.
