Next-gen Lightning Mobile DC fast charger offers rapid deployment of charging

Lightning eMotors (NYSE: ZEV) has unveiled its second-generation Lightning Mobile charger for commercial and consumer EVs. The new systems are available to order for delivery in late 2022.

The Lightning Mobile DC fast charger is designed to offer rapid deployment of charging in locations where static charging stations are not possible or that only have Level 2 power available—without the constraints associated with installing static charging stations.

Each modular unit offers between 105 and 420 kWh of battery storage capacity, and can provide up to 5 DC fast-charging outputs. The modular unit features active thermal management for optimum battery performance, as well as telematics/analytics features.

“Lightning Mobile provides a much-needed charging solution for everything from mobile disaster relief and rescue to intermittent charging points at facilities like sports stadiums, which need an EV charging and power solution in various locations,” said Lightning eMotors CEO Tim Reeser. “It can also serve as a short- or medium-term charging solution for fleets to rapidly deploy EVs while waiting for permanent infrastructure to be installed.”

“Lightning’s next-generation mobile charger can support an accelerated rate of electric commercial vehicle adoption while their depot charging is being installed, a process that, unfortunately, can take a long time,” said VP Brandon McNeil.
