Lightning eMotors, a provider of zero-emissions medium-duty commercial vehicles and electric vehicle (EV) technology, is offering its second-generation Lightning Mobile charger for commercial and consumer EVs. The mobile DC fast charger enables rapid deployment of charging capabilities in locations where static charging stations are not possible, or where only Level 2 power is available.

The next-generation charger was designed, engineered and developed over a 12-month period of learnings from operating the first-generation prototype, Lightning eMotors explained. Engineers tested the prototype and its capabilities to develop a next-generation charging capability suitable for charging commercial trucks, vans, buses and cars at remote locations, events and depots.

“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 Tim Reeser, CEO, Lightning eMotors. “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.”

Each modular unit offers between 105 to 420 kWh battery capacity and provides the option of up to 5 DC fast-charging outputs. It can accommodate a variety of battery capacities and outputs to accommodate customer use cases. The unit also features the same advanced technologies as Lightning’s powertrains, including active thermal management for optimum battery performance and longevity and telematics/analytics to optimize overall fleet operations and vehicle safety.
