UK-based ZipCharge has recently launched its new portable charger for EVs, named the ZipCharge Go.

The company, which has headquarters in London, is headed by Jonathan Carrier and Richie Sibal who, between them, have over 40 years experience in the automotive industry with spells at McLaren Automotive, JLR, London Taxi and Gordon Murray Automotive on their CVs.

Few technical details have been released about the ZipCharge Go but the company has said the unit will be able to provide between 20 – 40 miles of range, depending on the vehicle, with the full capacity of the Go being able be delivered to the vehicle in less than 60 minutes.

ZipCharge has explained that the Go is designed to provide a convenient charging solution if the EV owner does not have access to a designated parking spot or a fixed charge point. The Go can be controlled via an app that can schedule charging when the cost of electricity is at its lowest, providing status updates and tracking.

ZipCharge also state that the Go can be used to store green energy off-peak and supply it back to the grid, indicating that the Go may be able to be used as a storage battery for domestic solar cell-generated power. 

Expected to go on sale in 2022, ZipCharge has indicated that they want to make the Go available on subscription for £49.00 per month.

These guys are in a league of their own! I just had a first rental experience with EV Hire and it was as smooth as one can imagine.
