Electric vehicle (EV) chargers are now a popular sight up and down the country. On the street, at shopping centres and even at stadiums and arenas, more and more places are taking the initiative and installing chargers to help out EV drivers. However, there have been many instances of grid chargers failing, cutting out or becoming such a nuisance that residents are becoming disgruntled. So, there’s now a question that we need to answer; how can we be sure that portable charging is a reliable alternative?
EV chargers for rent can be deployed and taken away with ease, and provide a great amount of charge in locations where connecting to the grid is impractical or impossible. We know the media loves bad news, but any stories surrounding EV charging at the moment seem to be negative. However, mobile EV charging is a great way to avoid the complications that grid charging can sometimes bring, and here’s why…
The Reliability Compared to Grid Chargers
The main issue with grid chargers is that they can be a pain to install. If they’re being installed onto a street, they can close down the road for many weeks, creating pesky roadworks that every driver hates. They can also cause issues for residents who may need access to their homes. There have also been reports of them cutting out and taking a while to even get started, causing problems for the grid and for EV drivers looking for a working charger. Luckily, with portable EV charging, you won’t experience these problems.
Portable EV chargers can be deployed directly to your location with no installation fees or disruption taking place. They can even be placed at one-time events or sporting games, so you don’t have to waste time and money on installing chargers that may become obsolete.

The ‘Electric Car Charging’ Watchdog
It was revealed recently that the UK car industry has called for a watchdog to oversee charging prices and where charge points are available. As the market grows, the chargers need to be monitored. Consumer confidence is “essential,” and if they keep cutting out and making themselves unavailable, more people will want to complain. The monitoring will keep grid chargers in line, but what does this mean for rentable EV chargers?

Our Concierge Service
The reason some people have such an issue with EV charging stations is that there is no one to directly complain to when things go wrong. If you experience issues at a restaurant, shopping centre or public car park, the owners will have to contact those that installed the chargers. It’s a game of whispers, which doesn’t help the driver out in the long run. They may take to complaining on social media, which can make the EV charge revolution seem obsolete. Here at Elite, we provide a concierge service with all car charging stations, so you don’t have to worry about breakdowns.
If you experience any issues with your chargers, we will be on hand to sort out the problems with our concierge service.
