Problem addressed

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.

  • Lithium-ion battery as energy source
  • The design is suitable for off-grid and portable usage
Key impact
  • Provide effective and mobile charging services to ease range anxiety of EV drivers.
  • Fast charging for 4 minutes to gain 20km ranging distance, or charge an EV to 80% in just 40 minutes (Estimation based on Nissan Leaf or BMW i3)
  • All-in-one solution for different EV standards including Japan CHAdeMO, Euro IEC CCS (Combo2) and IEC 62196 single-phase semi-quick charging
  • Promote EV adoption in the community
  • Silver Medal in the 2016 Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions
  • Gold Medal award in the 2017 Chinese International Invention Expo
  • Public parking areas (e.g. shopping centres, public car parks)
