Portable DC EV Charger

Portable DC EV charger is smaller power DC charging stations. Also known as movable DC EV charger.

Compared with high-power DC charging station, although the portable DC EV charger has smaller power, it also supports OCPP1.6J, RFID card charging and touch screen functions.


HOSTON portable DC EV charger, also known as small DC charger, can provide output power of 20kW and 40kW.


Unlike common DC charging stations, portable DC chargers do not need to be fixed on site. It can be transported with the vehicle and can charge electric vehicles as long as there is a 3-phase power supply.


It is generally used in usage scenarios such as private fleet charging, temporary charging, and mid-transport charging.

Advantages of Portable DC EV Charger

——Lower Cost

Portable DC EV charger is cheaper than high-power charger.

Compared with high-power chargers, portable DC EV chargers have fewer components and are smaller in size, so the cost is relatively low, and the price is usually around USD10, 000.

It only requires industrial and commercial power input and is not subject to site restrictions. No extensive site modifications are required.


——Flexible Charging

Just move to a place with a 3-phase electrical input socket, plug in and it’s ready to use.

If necessary, it can be disassembled and transformed into a wall-mounted or floor-standing small DC charging station.

It can be left at the site where the vehicle passes through, or it can be transported with the vehicle.


——Fast Charging Speed

Excluding the influence of other factors, in general, it is slower than high-power DC charging, but faster than AC charging.

Most vehicles can be fully charged in 1-3 hours. It would be faster if it was only charged to 80% of battery capacity. It only takes about 45-60 minutes.

In short, portable DC EV charger trade off a little bit of charging power for flexibility.



Applicable Scenarios for Portable Chargers

——Fleet Charging

Generally speaking, private fleets (wedding fleets, private shuttles, transportation fleets, etc.) have fixed transportation times, the distances are not very far, and the charging needs are clear.

Building high-power charging stations or AC slow charging stations does not seem to be an economical and wise choice for this purpose.

It is obvious that small DC charging stations are ideally suited for this type of fleet.


——Cleaning Vehicle Charging

Is cleaning a vehicle a full day’s work?

No, frequent cleaning is pointless. Usually city road cleaning is only done in the morning, noon and evening.

These times are spaced out enough to keep staff and cleaning vehicles energized.


——Charging during Transportation

For fleet vehicles that travel between multiple factories, because factories generally have three-phase power supply, charging can be achieved at the destination or at the factory midway. Drivers no longer need to make special trips to find public charging stations.

When the loading and unloading of goods is completed, the vehicle is also charged.
