With electric vehicles (EV) becoming the next big thing in the automobile industry, relevant devices and accessories are also joining the EV ecosystem. One of these devices is called a ZipCharge Go, a power bank that allows EV owners to charge their vehicles on the go. This is a very convenient device for EV owners who might find trouble in finding an electric station because despite the rise of EVs electric stations are not a common thing yet.

The ZipCharge Go was introduced by a British startup having the same name as that of the product. This power bank is the size of a suitcase and weighs around 50 pounds while having wheels and a retractable handle. The Go can provide up 20 miles of range after being plugged into the car for just 30 minutes. However, there will be a higher capacity version that will be able to provide an EV up to 40 miles of range.

 

The power bank works with any plug-in hybrid or EV with a Type 2 socket and it takes around 30 minutes or 1 hour to charge up to full capacity. Though charging the device is as easy as plugging an appliance plug into a socket. In addition, users will be able to control and monitor the device through a mobile application.

The ZipCharge Go will be available around the fourth quarter of 2022 which will have a 4kWh and an 8kWh version.
