Lightning Systems recently announced an EV roadside assistance solution — the Lightning Mobile DC fast charger. The solution is equipped with 192 kWh of high-energy-density, liquid-cooled DC battery storage in a package.
It is designed to be installed in a vehicle or trailer for rapid mobile deployment.
The mobile charger also offers the capability to recharge EVs on their routes, like a fighter aircraft being refueled in-flight, which allows fleets to maximize vehicle uptime.
Lightning Mobile supports commercial and government fleets that operate electric vehicles, providing roadside charging as a “power rescue” vehicle, buffered direct current fast charger (DCFC) during peak hours, and DCFC for locations that do not yet have Level 3 service permitted or installed.
Lightning Systems, Mobile, is charged from a standard Level 2 AC charger at up to 18kW and can deliver DC Fast Charging at up to 80kW and, optionally, Level 2 AC charging at up to 19.2kW.
Lightning Systems designed the system to be installed in its Lightning Electric Transit 350HD cargo van, but the system can be installed in any vehicle or trailer that meets size and weight specifications.
Thousands of new commercial EVs will be on the road over the next few years. Ensuring good charging options for such commercial EVs is critical to their success and the market’s growth.
