Mobile Fast Charging

A portable DC fast charger for electric vehicles (EVs) is a device that can provide high-powered DC charging to EVs, allowing them to recharge much quicker than with a standard Level 1 or 2 charger. Portable DC fast chargers have the following features:• They are not permanently installed and can be easily moved from location to location.

  • They use DC current to provide fast charging capabilities. This means they can charge EVs at rates of 50 kW or higher.
  • They connect directly to an EV’s DC charging port to provide fast charging.
  • They require a high-powered electrical connection to provide the needed current for fast charging. This typically means a 240V outlet or a hardwired connection.The cost to install a portable DC fast charger will depend on several factors:
  • The charger unit itself. Portable DC fast chargers range in price from around $2,000 to $10,000 or more for the unit.
  • Electrical work required. If a new high-powered electrical circuit needs to be run, this can add $500-$2,000 or more to the installation costs.
  • Permit fees. Some locations require permits for EV charging installations, which can cost a few hundred dollars.
  • Labor. If an electrician is needed to install the charger, their labor costs will need to be factored in, typically a few hundred dollars.

Overall, to professionally install a portable DC fast charger, total costs can range from around $3,000 to $15,000 or more, depending on the specific charger, electrical work required, and local permit fees and labor costs. The charger unit itself is often the biggest single cost.

Hope this overview helps explain portable DC fast chargers for EVs and the potential installation costs!
