Frequently Asked Questions

The EV400 portable charging unit is a dual-fuel generator that runs on both propane and gasoline, which are both considered clean fuels, and can provide up to 1 mile per minute charging capacity for both commercial use as well as to provide auxiliary power in emergency situations.

As new EV owners come to terms with “range anxiety,” and fears over running out of electricity while on the road, tow companies are showing a lot of interest in the EV400 unit as an option to ensure their fleets are capable of providing roadside charging. As EVs don’t have a neutral setting, they can only be towed on a flatbed truck at great cost to the owner. With the EV400, tow companies can now provide a quick roadside charge that will allow EV owners to get to their destination without need of requesting a tow. Similarly, car dealerships have the need for the EV400 as a means to charge the electric vehicles in their lots without having to risk damage by constantly moving them to a charging point. Military bases are also an essential fit, as they often require backup power services in remote and challenging conditions. Finally, the EV400 is ideal for emergency services – from both a municipal perspective but also for private companies and individuals, as an auxiliary power source.

The EV400 has clear advantages over other portable charging units in the marketplace. For example, the main competitor in the space is solely powered by gasoline, while the EV400 is dual-fuel and can be powered by clean fuels such as propane and gasoline. Alternatively, there’s also a unit in the market powered by electricity, but this limits its productive capacity in the field by how much charge its own battery can hold, along with the number of cars that can be charged in one sitting. It is possible to increase the electricity-powered unit’s capacity by “stacking” batteries on top of each other, but this is neither efficient nor practical, especially with each battery requiring at least 4 hours to charge. If we take into consideration both national fuel prices and charging time constraints, the EV400 is by far the most cost-efficient portable charging unit available.

Furthermore, other competitors in the market come with only the most basic IOT networked connectivity, while the EV400 unit has a built-in “Siemens Smart Charger” interface that manages multiple charging requirements, including:

• Max level 2 charging
• Revenue-accurate metering
• Interaction with building management systems
• LED indicated system power, vehicle connection status and fault status
• Touch sensitive button for desired time delay and power level
• Locked panel and use of remote control
• Integrated and high-performing dual band WIFI connection
• Electricity/power management software to prevent damage/explosion
• A rugged housing structure with wheels for ease-of-use and maneuverability outdoors

 

At present, our aim is to aggressively expand and integrate our units nationwide, so as to become a turn-key solution and supplier for municipalities, rural communities, military bases, construction sites, tow companies, car dealerships etc. looking to improve their electric vehicle (or auxiliary power) infrastructure capacity.

Charge Me accepts all forms of payment – and even offers financing for qualified individuals through our strategic financial partner, Tandem Finance. Furthermore, Charge Me is working with BriteSwitch, a rebate aggregator, which allows us to find and track federal and state rebate programs for EV investment, and inform buyers about opportunities for them to get money back after buying a unit.

The EV800 stationary charging unit is an off-grid, high-powered charging solution currently under development. The units are powered by a natural gas tank, for which we manage the fueling, but can also connect directly to main gas lines for easy infrastructure integration. In fact, the EV800 does not require any infrastructure construction or pre-development, and will be able to provide Level 3 Supercharging capabilities for any off-grid or remote location.

These units can be packed up and shipped across the country to remote rural areas, highway rest stops, gas stations, nature reserves, municipalities, military bases and national parks – to extend national electric vehicle coverage and ensure a seamless transition towards electric vehicle adoption. For gas stations, the EV800 will allow for low-cost upgrades that can support electric vehicle charging while helping them to diversify their revenue streams. For coastal areas and remote states that don’t have easy access to the electrical grid, the EV800 unit can ensure these locations have a cost-effective solution that means they can support electrical vehicle adoption. Finally, states with already crowded infrastructure, like NYC, can easily install EV800 units across the city and tap directly into underground gas lines, creating a minimally invasive off-grid boost to support electric vehicles and municipal services.

First and foremost, it should be noted that unlike Tesla and other supercharger providers, the EV800 does not strain the electrical grid – so even as the country slowly upgrades the grid to support further electric vehicle infrastructure, Charge Me products will be able to bridge the gap in those locations that may be temporarily offline as they receive upgrades. Furthermore, Charge Me is actually well-positioned to partner with natural gas utility companies to expand natural gas applications so they include electric vehicle charging.

The EV800 Stationary Charging Unit will be positioned in the EV infrastructure market as a first-of-its-kind off-grid charging solution that will provide Supercharging capabilities. It will be the only such Supercharger powered by clean fuels including natural gas and propane. The EV800 can handle more than one Siemens “Smart Charging” unit to allow for multiple EV charging at once – with up to two EVs capable of charging simultaneously.

EV800 Stationary Charging Unit Specs

There is no comparable stationary unit in the market that will provide Level 3 Supercharging capabilities while generating power off-grid. Despite being a stationary unit, the EV800 is modular so installation can be easily modified or moved to accommodate changes in property layouts etc., which is a huge advantage when considering the comparable cost of building a permanent electric power grid structure.

There have also been countless stories in the news about all-electric city bus fleets that remained inoperable during power outages. These are the kind of infrastructure concerns that remain unanswered for in the push for electric fleets. The EV800 can provide critical off-grid power support for any electrical application.

At present, our aim is to aggressively expand and integrate our units nationwide, so as to become a turn-key solution and supplier for municipalities, rural communities, military bases, construction sites, tow companies, car dealerships etc. looking to improve their electric vehicle (or auxiliary power) infrastructure capacity.
