Why ‘Top-Up’ Charging is the Future

When individuals get an electric vehicle (EV) for the very first time, there are a few things they need to tick off of their checklist. Getting a home EV charger installed, checking Zap Map for the closest public chargers to them and getting used to the electric battery are all things that need to be studied and considered. Going from filling up on fuel to car charging is a big change for everyone, so there are a few etiquette points that need to be contemplated. Battery EV charging points work perfectly as top-up chargers, and they can be a great choice for the more anxious drivers…

Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we provide portable EV chargers to destinations and events across the UK, particularly in places where connecting to the grid is impractical or impossible. Portable EV charging won’t overwhelm the grid, and can provide EV drivers with a great place to top up their cars, as well as providing events and destinations with more incentives for eco-conscious people. Utilising these chargers as top-up stations is the perfect opportunity to get more people into EV driving, and here’s why…

Decreasing Range Anxiety

One of the biggest issues that drivers encounter when considering an electric car is range anxiety. 45% of people who are considering an electric car said that the fear of being out of range of public charging points is what worries them the most. Charging at home is a popular option, but if drivers are planning a long route, they may find themselves searching along the journey for chargers to ensure they don’t run out of charge and find themselves stranded. EV charging points aren’t too popular in off-grid areas, which is why portable EV charging points come in handy.

Providing portable chargers for top-up purposes can keep this range anxiety to a minimum, as drivers aren’t running themselves dry before they find a charging point. You’d never let your car run empty; you always search for a petrol station when you notice your fuel going down, so why not apply the same mindset to charging an electric car. Battery storage chargers can be deployed across the country, helping drivers on their journey.

Provisions for Busy People

Some people are constantly on the go and don’t have time to leave their cars in public charging stations for hours on end. If they’re out all day, the charge they got at home might not last long, and they will need somewhere where they can charge as they go. Public car parks, supermarkets and workplaces can benefit from battery storage chargers, especially if they don’t want to leave a legacy with grid chargers. This way, EV drivers can carry on with their days without having to worry about charging.

When you drive an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle, you have to worry about finding a petrol station when your fuel light comes on; with portable EV charging points, you can keep topped up until you return home, charging your vehicle sufficiently throughout the day.
